"Excellent synchronization with the cloud."

What do you like best?

If you work on lots of vector pictures, you are able to scale a lot of the vector points, thus working on vectors is sort of simple with a creative person. The actual fact that your styles are all uploaded onto the cloud implies that I can access the designs on totally different Adobe applications. Typically I fell irritated with the cloud. However, it makes it much more comfortable particularly if I perform at totally different workspaces, and I will have access to that anytime. I conjointly just like the indisputable fact that it's perpetually updated, which suggests the tools solely regain and better.

What do you dislike?

It takes a long time to adapt to "drawing" and designing graphics with a mouse or touchpad instead of a pencil. However, that may be additional of a user issue than a product problem. The pricing for the Creative Cloud vs purchasing the product outright like we have a tendency to be able to do is pretty annoying although.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are numerous tutorials on youtube and also the Adobe's knowledgebase or the Internet generally. If you make an attempt to work some things out, a fast google search will show you a tutorial that may help you step by step. If you wish to find out quicker ways to doing one thing, numerous tutorials may simplify the process of expediting your style method.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can design graphics and physical schemes super quick. Moreover, I could ready to modify them super effortless. It implies that if I want to vary a detail or produce slight variations of the identical style it merely is managed.

"Create your websites or your Front End systems!"

What do you like best?

It is one of my favorite programs for the design and creation of websites, basically with all the tools that it offers, it allows you to create and design a website in its fullness and in this way to know where we are going in the project, it also allows you to design the frontal or visual part of a system and therefore make it as dynamic and intuitive as possible, in this way being able to present a previous version to clients in order to achieve better communication. It is a very powerful tool with an infinite number of capacities. It also allows you to work with vector resources which is very positive and very good when developing the advertising material or the indeciplinary content of a company.

What do you dislike?

It is true that the only negative aspect is the price since it is high and that it really is not a simple tool to use, it takes a lot of knowledge to be able to get the most out of it since it has many characteristics that are for professionals in the field, but the truth is that with specific courses we can be very useful for what we need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation is that they look for the way to have an introductory course in order not to be lost when using this tool, but outside of that it is a tool for design and creation by excellent and very difficult to match.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have managed to present different ideas without the need to develop them all with the intention that the client is enlightened about what they want, it really seems an indispensable tool in the area of programming and design since with it we can achieve the creation of content, and corporate images, really is a tool to which I appeal almost in all my projects so much that makes things easier for me.

"Adobe Ilustrador "

What do you like best?

I like to be a functional software, a vector editor par excellence for the development of logos, easy to learn because of its similarity with Adobe Photoshop because the interface and operability are similar and complement each other. There are many tutorials that allow the understanding of the use of the tools. The decomposition of an image into a vector is great, given that the appropriate use is given to each particle that composes the image in the digital design, through its multiple tools of direct or group selection, shape tools and free drawing, tools to color, erase, rotation, among others.

What do you dislike?

This is not an easy software to learn if it is the first time you use an Adobe product, otherwise it is friendly because the interfaces and functionalities are similar.

Being a self-taught designer, I take time to know the tool, and hours of practice for your domain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This type of tools should be taught in schools and colleges, finally somehow currently touches the manipulation of pdf files and we need a designer if we want to have a company or trade, either physical or online. In addition adobe offers support services through its articles and tutorials via YouTube you can know its functionalities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The development of my own logo, without the intervention of a graphic designer, bringing as a benefit the savings in contracting costs. The knowledge of a new design tool, which is complemented with Adobe PhotoShop.

"Si necesitas vectorizar este es tu programa"

What do you like best?

Illustrator me proporciona una inmensa variedad de opciones a la hora de diseñar, y creo sin temor a equivocarme que es el mejor programa para vectorizar imágenes que existe, ya no solo por la multitud de opciones que ofrece, sino por el soporte y la fiabilidad que conlleva utilizar un programa de Adobe.

He probado otros programas de vectorizar pero ninguno se le compara.

What do you dislike?

Me cuesta encontrar algo que no me guste de este programa, pero hay veces que mi ordenador se resiente en cuanto a rendimiento si utilizo muchas capas a la vez. Por eso alguna que otra vez abro un archivo nuevo para trabajar de 0 con capas nuevas. Pero es cuestión de ir reduciendo el tamaño de ciertas imágenes para que no pese tanto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Me parece una herramienta muy muy útil y que sin duda no se compara a otras que he probado para vectorizar, por lo que si estáis buscando un programa súper completo para vectorizar, maquetar, diseñar o ilustrar alguna cosa, este es vuestro programa. Lo bueno de la suite de Adobe es que si necesitais complementarlo con algún otro programa (tipo Photoshop) es muy sencillo pasar imágenes de un programa a otro.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Illustrator es genial para maquetar y diseñar cualquier cosa, he hecho desde presentaciones (luego pasadas a PDF), carteles publicitarios, logos, ilustraciones sencillas... Como lo puedes vectorizar todo ya sea manual o automáticamente, te sientes segura a la hora de que no va a perder calidad de imagen.

"I love using Illustrator"

What do you like best?

When it involves creating a sketch or capture a thought, the standard and productivity may be found with "Illustrator", it's fantastic the number of functions and finishing that I are able to do with all the choices it offers, from filtering filters found in different tools adobe, to form shapes to style that enable you to recreate forms, drawings, logos, models and for a lot of, here you'll bring home the bacon it. It's excellent on behalf of me, I have it on all my devices, and there I will work with all my resources integrated into the cloud.

What do you dislike?

During all this point creative person has notoriously improved its versions that antecedently left you within the middle of a project as a result of its versions stopped, and this was annoying, however currently its auto-save engine which remains within the cloud, could be a purpose in favour that doesn't will be omitted, Adobe knew what all its users vitally needed and has not given them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a corporation with totally different demands among the planning space, and here I've got the privilege of operating with a really virtuoso dynamic team to figure on our comes below an artist, it's essential, it's our weapon to face the challenges of our shoppers and that we accomplish prime quality finishes, his brushes, game of shapes, points of anchors, fountains and panels of colours, represent everything associate creator needs. I've got been operating with an artist for quite a while and will not realize another product that offers me everything I will find in it.

"Indespinsable for Designers"

What do you like best?

Newer smart guides have come a long way and save a ton of time when trying to align objects. The snap alignments are especially helpful when using the pen tool and lining up multiple rows and columns quickly. I like the new 2019 additions for puppet warp.

What do you dislike?

I feel like after every update I have massive problems with RAM, especially saving and opening documents. I had to add much more RAM to my already pretty new MAC just to get it to be functional. I work limited hours, so I don't have time to watch a spinning rainbow ball for 5 minutes every time I want to open and save a file. Running the activity monitor shows tons of Adobe daemons running in the background that I think are responsible, I just never know which are necessary and which aren't.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For vector work, it's the only software out there to use. The newer features - especially the puppet warp tool - are extremely helpful. It integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe products. For anyone considering using any Adobe CC program, make sure your RAM capacity is up to date and can handle it, because CC programs suck a lot of usability from your computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work mostly on vector design for screen printers. I also do large scale vector design work for vehicle graphics. The ability to select everything in a specific color and change everything at once is the perfect, quick solution I need to set up vellums and screens for printing. Basically Illustrator is the gold standard for anyone working in vector design and needing cross compatibility.

"Adobe Illustrator."

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Adobe Illustrator es :

-el programa no es tan pesado como por ejemplo corel draw, ademas de tener mas herramientas, 

-las imágenes pueden requerir menor espacio en disco que un mapa de bits, las imágenes formadas por colores planos o degradados sencillos son más faciles de ser vectorizadas. A menor información para crear la imagen, menor será el tamaño del archivo. 

-No pierden calidad al ser escaladas.

Los objetos definidos por vectores pueden ser guardados y modificados en el futuro. 

-Algunos formatos permiten animación

What do you dislike?

Lo que más odio de adobe illustrator es:

Precio algo elevado.

Curva de aprendizaje alta, aunque por suerte hay muchos tutoriales.

Los gráficos vectoriales en general no son aptos para codificar fotografías o vídeos tomados en el mundo real.

Los datos que describen el gráfico vectorial deben ser procesados, el computador debe ser suficientemente potente para realizar los cálculos necesarios para formar la imagen final.

Por más que se construya una imagen con gráficos vectoriales su visualización en última instancia tiene que ser traducida a píxeles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es cierto que hace falta mucho tiempo para aprender a manejar este programa, pero las posibilidades son enormes a la hora del diseño de imágenes vectoriales, lo que certifica que erece la pena esa inversión de tiempo de esfuerzo y práctica.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muy útuil para hacer logos, botones y otros artefactos de la pagina web.

"Each sketch has come alive with Illustrator, it's amazing."

What do you like best?

Testing several software, I realized that there is no other tool in design that compares with Adobe Illustrator. It is fascinating to have an adaptable worktable, with various functions to improve and give a professional touch to your designs, you can make any sketch, drawings, reports, web layout, logos, art infinity. The availability of many functions found in other tools of adobe here is present including filters to improve each photo retouching, it is even a novelty to have the availability of auto save your projects and thus not lose your progress if there is any failure or inconvenience with your equipment.

What do you dislike?

During a walk through each version of Adobe Illustrator I found the improvements and the debugging of common errors that existed when you were carrying a project with many editions, layers or imports of images, it froze and stopped working; In its most recent version this does not happen and it operates correctly, it is a pleasure to have these advances and that the Adobe team has resorted to debugging them. Its cost has been a surprise, at first we all agreed that it was very expensive but the truth is that for the performance and the service they provide is a guarantee that covers the cost of their license.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Investing in a license will be worth it when you adapt to its entire interface to your desk, many applications take this example as an example that provides a great area to develop and achieve great designs. There is a lot of documentation in special forums of Adobe that can help you to practice for the improvement of the use of the application, there are tutorials, shortcuts and improvements with additional actions that can be integrated into Illustrator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have had the opportunity to show great results from a sketch and give an identity to my designs, this is part of the various functions that allow you to achieve spectacular designs with professional finishes. It is a totally intuitive tool adaptable to have access to any additional window or panel, such as cryptograms, color palettes, browsers, layers, stroke editions, gradients, it is a very complete application.

"Perfect for making logos"

What do you like best?

"The entire Adobe CC has done an incredible work joining all the Adobe software, so that all the programs offer a smooth compatibility when working with numerous software simultaneously. By having an Adobe Suite account, you can enjoy the many features Adobe Illustrator has. Using those makes it a lot less complicated for all designers to get right of entry to their documents and their color schemes effortlessly.

In comparison with other vector graphics software, Adobe Illustrator is way better, adding so much detail to every design that can be make imagined."

What do you dislike?

Adobe Illustrator, just like Photoshop, Premier Pro and the rest of the Adobe CC products; is difficult to master at first. It has so many options and features that is almost impossible to be able to use them all. This isn't actually something bad, it's just that it might take some time to learn it appropriately. Also, Adobe Illustrator is not allowed to open the same PDF simultaneously, even if you're trying to reach a different page from the same document.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Illustrator is ideal for structuring realistic graphics. Perfect for professional or freelancers working with logos, flyers and diagrams. Nonetheless, I wouldn't recommend using this software for setting an actual project, but for design small details of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company's Marketing department uses Illustrator for all kinds of design works but especially for setting up logos for our sponsors. Illustrator and Photoshop are the two most used software on this department, allowing us to create our representative design work quickly and beautifully for our newspaper.

"Illustrator is one of the very powerful software for vector images."

What do you like best?

I use illustrator for my job on a regular basis, and it is unmatched in terms of its capability for creating and editing vector graphics. There are so many features and capabilities within the software, I doubt that I have even scratched the surface of Illustrator's capability.

What do you dislike?

You might encounter some bug while working on Illustrator. It may happen that the software will crash while using it so pay attention to activate the recovery option and to compulsively save your work to avoid the loss of the work done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Those designers and companies that need to improve their designs and the performance of their designers, should have this software as a priority among their next acquisitions, as it happened with me, I'm sure that those who start using the software will discover a new world in design thanks to Adobe Illustrator.

"A great program to make your projects pop"

What do you like best?

The amazing end result that you get when you finish a project is by far my favorite part of this entire program. The amount of options you have at the tips of your fingers is honestly unlimited and you can make so many amazing images or even cartoon like characters!

What do you dislike?

The only major downside of this program is the fact that usability is a little challenging if you aren't already familiar with other graphics heavy software and have some sort of IT background.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The biggest recommendation I have is to not give up, put in the time required to really learn the program and allow yourself to be as creative as possible because what you can do with this program is absolutely limitless. I would urge anyone who wants to start their own website to use it for background images or headers for the website. Do you have your own YouTube channel? This program is also perfect for you as you can cartoonize yourself and create your own avatar or you could build banners and logos for your channel and start really promoting your own brand. But in the end, just DON'T GIVE UP!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are rebranding our entire college beacause some of the past administration has tarnished the reputation so we are heavily relying on Adobe products to help and Illustrator is one that we are using quite often to get the job done.

"Vector editor Adobe Illustrator - Convenient editor"

What do you like best?

Very convenient and functional editor from Adobe. Adobe as always pleased with something new. This program will be easy to learn for people who understand Adobe Photoshop because the interface and functionality are somewhat similar. But I faced one problem ! When you create a field to "draw" the program stops responding ! You may also face this problem. One more thing ! If you have not encountered Adobe Photoshop or programs of this type before, it will be a little difficult for you to master the Adobe Illustrator editor. So here is the outcome ! here is one plus and one minus : Plus : ease of use. Disadvantage : faced with the departure of the program

What do you dislike?

That's my personal problem. The program crashes very often, so you need to constantly make copies of the save.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this program. Very easy to learn!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"My Adobe Illustrator experience"

What do you like best?

What I like about Adobe Illustrator while it can be intimidating to use at first it is also very easy to learn on how to use it. just as with any other type of task it takes practice to master but it has a vast variety of tutorials and guides on how to use it various tools to their full potential.

What do you dislike?

Currently what I don't like is that the application has been crashing too often. It would be beneficial if Adobe provide some form of explication as to what is causing the problem and a timeline for a fix. And because of this problems it can be frustrating when working on a project which can hinder the work-flow of any user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely Adobe Illustrator is the go to application to create vector art, I would suggest to try other vector art based software as well, and also to take various courses online to be able to learn to use the tools that the software has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am currently being able to solve the lack of branding solutions that my clients. it could be a new logo or an illustration that explains and simplifies their vision. Being able to develop a brand from scratch is something I like to do and having the right tools at my disposal can definitely improve my chances of success in my field, and with that my clients can be confident that I have provided my best work possible

"Terrific for creating infographics, even if you're new to design"

What do you like best?

I had to teach myself Adobe Illustrator after our graphic design person left; it suddenly became my job to build our Architecture Billings Index infographic every month. Though it's not the most intuitive software in the world, I was able to quickly understand the nuts and bolts of how it works and create a great monthly graphic.

What do you dislike?

It is not the easiest software to learn from scratch; anyone familiar with the Adobe suite will get it quickly, but I am a writer by trade so it took me a little to merely find out where all the functions were. This is understandable, though, because it's a powerful tool aimed at those who understand how the Adobe apps all work (and how to design).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a designer by trade, or a content manager who needs to create clean and appetizing PDFs and other graphics for your audience, this is a great place to begin. It might be a little tough to learn at the start, but once you understand how Adobe products work, it'll be a breeze. I have nothing but positive things to say about my interactions with Adobe support staff and the items they produce.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to create a monthly infographic in-house, displaying all the details of how the architecture profession has risen or fallen from a business perspective. This was perfect for that; once we set up a template and I personally understand all the Adobe commands and where everything was hiding, it was easy to update as needed. Our members love it too.

"Excellent Tool for Illustration Based Designs"

What do you like best?

It's probably the best application for illustration based designs. I regularly use Illustrator to convert vector images into SVG, and will often edit them to suit my needs.

What do you dislike?

Vector live tracing could be improved. If I have a crystal clear, high quality raster image that needs to be converted to vector, I still get artifacts and jaggy edges. It's gotten way better over time, but still needs a lot of improvement. There's also an issue with SVG exporting, as on some occasions the export will skew lines and add unnecessary anchor points that screw up the design, which will often require me to go back and edit the SVG to attempt a fix. More often than not, it'll revert back to what it initially exported as, adding to the frustration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for vector based illustrations and conversion to SVG.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows us to create vector illustrations as well as convert existing vector images into SVG for web based applications.

"Adobe Illustrator is the only vector drawing tool"

What do you like best?

I like that I can make any type of vector format logo in Adobe Illustrator. Since I have taken Skillshare courses on how to use the tools in the program properly, I am creating things I would have previously believed difficult or impossible. It is great to know that the designs I am rendering are pixel-perfect and can be safely scaled to any size without fearing a loss of clarity or quality. Last, but not least, the guide in the program are really helpful for checking design dimensions and proportions. I like how the guide can adjust to any coordinates that I set them to quickly and easily.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that sometimes Adobe Illustrator becomes overloaded and crashes. I think that is a problem that all Adobe programs have, especially after an update is released, but it seems to be severely more problematic in AI than the other apps. Another thing that I dislike is that converting from Pantone to CMYK to RGB color isn't straightforward. I wish that there was a native tool that did this conversion– The scripts that I've located don't effectively complete this task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend that graphic designers use Adobe Illustrator. It is the best tool for making vector logos and similar products just don't have all of the same capabilities or ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Illustrator has helped me become a graphic and logo design expert and helps me make my client's vision real. It has also helped me to simplify the proccess of precisely defining the dimensions and proportions of all of my designs.

"Confusing, but gets the job done"

What do you like best?

Personal favorite feature of Ai is the Image Trace tool. It just works when I need it to, especially with the parameters you can give it. The many many options to making something change, is also very nice. For example, a straight line can be changed to hundreds of different things, with just a few clicks.

What do you dislike?

I use a lot of Adobe products, and this one is easily my least favorite by far. The UI is jarring at first, but you get used to it. My main gripe with it is all the shortcuts in every other Adobe program are different in Ai for whatever reason. Things don't work 100% of the time and sometimes I have to flat out quit the application. It's frustrating, but does get its job done with Vector based graphics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be patient with the software because it will definitely pinch a nerve at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Logos are very nice to do within Ai, as well as vectorizing other images done NOT with Ai. Some benefits include having the Adobe Creative Cloud files all sync to pretty much anywhere I go whether than be between computers, my phone, iPad, etc. Adobe does know what they are ding 100%

"Sketching and designing with Illustrator is amazing."

What do you like best?

When it comes to making a sketch or capture an idea, the quality and productivity can be found with "Illustrator", it is fantastic the amount of functions and finishing that I can achieve with all the options it offers, from filtering filters found in other tools adobe , to make shapes to taste that allow you to recreate forms, drawings, logos, models and much more, here you can achieve it. It's perfect for me, I just have it on all my devices and there I can work with all my resources integrated into the cloud.

What do you dislike?

During all this time Illustrator has notoriously improved its versions that previously left you in the middle of a project because its versions stopped and this was annoying, but now its auto-save engine and that remains in the cloud, is a point in favor that does not can be put aside, Adobe knew what all its users really required and has not given them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Great product "

What do you like best?

Adobe illustrator is a versatile design software application that I primarily use to create digital assets and brand elements. The most useful thing about adobe illustrator is the scalability and how I don’t need to mess around with layers.

What do you dislike?

The most irritating thing about adobe illustrator is that when I swim from the text tool to the pen toon or any other tool with key board commands, it instead types a V or whatever that key board command is. Additionally there are many tools I have yet to learn and little time to as well so I wish the usability would be be more intuitive on that end. I also wish that I could export for screens with a transperent background, I might not be doing this correctly or just don’t know how.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It takes awhile to understand most of the tools but once you do, you’ll never go back to your previous illustration software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I’m able to easily and effectively create logos and digital assets for my clients. With adobe illustrator I was able to elivate my skill and style to a more courperate level, making my portfolio more attractive to potential clients.

"The Industry Standard for Illustration for a Reason"

What do you like best?

I have been using Adobe Illustrator since Adobe purchased Macromedia and no longer supported Freehand. It is amazing to be able to take a pen stylus and create a piece of artwork on the computer in much the same way I would do so by hand. The fact that Illustrator works seamlessly with the other Adobe products just gives me that much more of a reason to love it.

What do you dislike?

There are not many things to dislike about Illustrator. I guess if it could read my mind, it would be better. ;) But it is so user friendly and helps me accomplish exactly what I need to accomplish.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is so worth it to purchase this software if you are a graphic designer. It is the industry standard. I have used it for nearly 20 years, and I could not imagine using any other software for my graphic design and illustration needs. The fact that it works seamlessly with the other Adobe Creative Suite products is a huge bonus, as well!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program allows me to freelance and work from home in my web and graphic design business. The ability to layer a drawing and turn them off or on is a great benefit when reworking drawings for clients to keep me from having to completely redo the piece. I love the ability to have different toolbars for different work environments, so that if I am working on a piece of art or a logo or a graphic rendering, I can switch back and forth between the toolbars.

"All the tools I need for vector graphics editing in one package"

What do you like best?

I like that Adobe Illustrator has every tool that I need when I am creating and editing vector graphics in one package, including the pen tool with bezier curves, and an array of filters that can be used on vector graphics.

What do you dislike?

There are so many tools inside Adobe Illustrator, that finding the correct tool can take some time. Some of the tools are hidden underneath each other, and some functions are hidden away in menus and it can take some time to find them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Inkscape is also a good piece of software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Adobe Illustrator when I am creating original vector graphics, and when I am editing existing vector graphics. Having all the tools I need for this in one package saves me time, as otherwise I would be importing and exporting files into different software. I find that it works reliably and that the quality is very high.

"Adobe Illustrator is a work horse in the field of logo design for clients big and small."

What do you like best?

Adobe Illustrator through all of it's changes over the years still has kept the core pieces of the platform together. The tools are a perfect combination of the need associated with digital design including: Cursor tools for direct or bulk selections, shape tools, free draw tools, coloring tools, erasing tools, rotation tools, and more. Also, Adobe Illustrator allows you to customize your platform appearance to match your own desired styling and also supports switching for left handed use.

What do you dislike?

Honestly there isn't a whole lot to dislike about Adobe Illustrator especially when compared to other platforms with it's dexterity and fluid integrations with other Adobe products. The options for artboard backgrounds is pretty limited to a light grey to a dark grey. There are sometimes visual anomalies when zooming very far out as if the artwork is being designed raster as opposed to vector.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe offers very convenient pricing plans for the subscriptions to this product and also gives free updates along the way and detailed documents about the updates letting you know everything that has changed along the way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We handle customers from big to small with logo design, poster design, brochure setup, and more!

"The Ideal Helper of a Designer"

What do you like best?

Sincerely Adobe Illustrator is an ideal tool for graphic design, it is very complete work table that is available in addition to that in my opinion has a million points in favor so effective withva that allows you to work with vector resources, thing that not all or very few softwares do it in the way that Illustrator does, besides this is perfect for the creation of advertising material and the layout of websites, it is very good to create resources from scratch or edit resources created . Another particularity that I like very much is that it allows you to save the work table, besides being able to export the files in different formats and all this without losing quality.

What do you dislike?

There really are not things that I do not like about this software, I think it is extremely excellent, and the only thing that can seem really bad to someone is that you need a very good computer to work with the software 100%.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a software that I recommend to anyone who is in the area of design and even in the area of programming is ideal to design in addition to allowing you to keep things before doing them, it is also necessary when developing corporate identities by the ease with which you can work with vectors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Illustrator I use it for basically all the design works that I have, because with it I can create from corporate identities, up to the advertising material belonging to them.

"Illustrator "

What do you like best?

Illustrator allows you to create truly unique creations not available in other Adobe products to bring new life to your designs. I like the pen tool and vector applications, which are some of the only great qualities of Illustrator. However, they do it the best and it's damn good.

What do you dislike?

The fact that the layout and tools are completely different from the other Adobe products. This is nothing new and Adobe has heard our complaints for years. They need to streamline their products and make them more consistent to make work more efficient. They fixed some problems with the Creative Cloud LIbraries feature, but they need to stop messing around and get a consistent UX across the applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It takes awhile to learn how to use

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solve a number of design problems with Illustrator, including logo design, creating vector images, producing icons, and creating product mockups. I recently created a skateboard deck design using Illustrator which gave the process of submitting files across multiple users easy and effective.

"amazing functional "

What do you like best?

Create shapes with original brushes, customization options, and advanced contour control.

* Apply gradients to objects and edit the transparency of the entire gradient or individual colors and transitions.

* Change object properties directly from the Appearance palette without having to open additional fill, stroke, and effect palettes.

* Work with graphic files of various formats, such as EPS, FXG, PSD, DWG, SWF, SVG, TIFF, JPEG, PDF, DXF, GIF and many others.

· Create multi-page files while preserving the information about the layers in Illustrator.

* Place text in any environment, with font support in OpenType, manage character and paragraph styles.

* It is easy to work on the file in other Adobee design programs due to compatibility.

* Draw vector objects.

* Create three-dimensional special effects, apply special effects (for example, the Scribble effect, when vector objects look like sketches drawn by hand), create objects of arbitrary shape. This opportunity is appreciated by artists who are accustomed to draw with a pencil on a piece of paper

What do you dislike?

price, sometimes it crashes, also unfriendly user interface

"Best solution to create and edit vector graphics"

What do you like best?

Adobe Illustrator is silky smooth to use and the features of it is really promising. It supports lots of commonly available file types and after editing, the files could be exported to many file formats too. The ability of creating new shapes and objects with basic tools and getting that in to a very advanced level is so easy with Adobe Illustrator. Even a new user can self study and grasp the features of Adobe Illustrator in no time.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike at all. Everything is perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Illustrator is the best vector graphics software that you could ever find. It provides an all-in-one solution for the fair price you pay. Do not hesitate to go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Illustrator is used as the main vector graphics editor. Generally it is used to edit files in pdf or Ai format and export into DXF format.

"Well worth the cost!"

What do you like best?

So incredibly easy to work with vector graphics. Excellent tool for creating beautiful custom logos. I used to pay good money for someone else to create them for me, until I realized how simple it was with Illustrator. One of the great things about Adobe is their forum community and concise tutorial videos.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there is no free telephone support option. On the other hand, if you have an issue with the software itself, they are happy to assist. Once, I encountered a rare but known issue and called their Technical Support line. Not only did they help me recover my "lost" project, but answered an unrelated question for me. I believe it was their way of saying "we're sorry for the inconvenience". I have a yearly subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud and I am always finding easier ways to do things. Adobe should have a video that briefly explains each of the apps in their CC package. I believe it would help people discover its full potential and help streamline a business' workflow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't bother with any of the competitors. Adobe Illustrator is the industry leader and you'll see why when you use it. I highly suggest going for the entire Creative Cloud package. It has nearly every tool that a multimedia specialist could hope for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I primarily use it to create logos and marketing flyers, brochures, etc. I have found the best benefit to be that I no longer have to pay others to create logos.

Illustrator tiene abrir muchas ventanas y capas logrando tener buenos resultados con unos logos muy creativos vectoriales esto hace que puedes perder ediciones al no guardar y enlazar correctamente cada edición por capas.

"If you're making anything related to design and graphics, it should be started on Illustrator"

What do you like best?

Illustrator is the place to be if you need to be making something in the relation of graphic design, PR ideas, Marketing tactics, or anything really in that space. Illustrator makes it really easy and effective to make amazing graphics in unthinkable quality. Illustrator does majority of it's work in Vectors meaning that when you are designing something, the image or graphic isn't compressed into pixels straight away. The work is all saved in a scalable fashion

What do you dislike?

Illustrator has a lot of settings and preferences that for the beginning designer who doesn't have a basis or expertise in Illustrator , they could get discouraged or lost when using the product. It does contain some tutorials and explanations in the newer and latest releases however they don't explain everything about how to use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn other Adobe products as well because they all work very well together

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Illustrator helped us make graphics for your brand such as business cards, banners, logos, icons, etc. Since Illustrator does all of it's work in Vectors, we were able to export images and graphics into a Vector form where it could be scaled on practically any device's screen size that our users could be on. Whether that's their mobile phone, laptop, desktop or TV. The images all scale with them.

"Adobe Illustrator Review from a Digital Marketer"

What do you like best?

It is easy to use when you only need to make minor changes to an existing vector. I also like the quality of images. I used this product 2 years ago and it didn't have the option to export for web screen but now it has it, so is perfect for people like me who use this product for web design.

What do you dislike?

It can be complicated to use if you need to create an illustrator from scratch. It can be a bit expensive if you don't use the product a lot (every day), if you just need to make minor changes then it might be a bit expensive. In my case I use it just like 10% of the time and is just to make minor changes like color of a vector, delete certain objects and stuff like that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is good to have if your company does a lot of design, specially with vectors and illustrations. If you dedicate more than 40% of you activities in design then I will highly recommend you to use this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do web design so for me has been very useful to add certain illustrations and modify them according to my needs or my client's need.

There are a lot of other applications out there to create digital marketing materials but they are not so advanced, must of they don't allow you to modify vector or illustrations so Adobe Illustrator is perfect for such kind of work.

"What photoshop can't do, Illustrator will do it"

What do you like best?

This is a software! I make collages with this of my before and after work with it and it's quick and easy. It works amazingly well, never lags or crashes, has god knows how many features and filters that are all organized into sections and it works perfect. It’s just amazing and it definitely worth checking out! I specially use it for filters custom exposure and it never failed on me, considering the near endless amount of things that can be done with Adobe's products, and the ones that can’t be done with photoshop will definitely be done with illustrator. To be honest, I didn't think it would work as well as the example photos, but it just transformed a photo taken in a dark room so that it looks like I had a light on

What do you dislike?

To be honest, there’s not much I dislike about it. Maybe a couple of times it has been frozen, but I wouldn’t blame it on the software but on my system or maybe with the last update that came with a problem with the resizing watermark. No matter how large I made my watermark it appeared tiny on my final saves image. However, this was solve with time and, since then, I hasn’t have any complain with this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Like the tittle says: What photoshop can't do, Illustrator will do it for you. Specially if you like to create content instead of editing. It allows you to get creative

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like I said before, I work creating content. So, most of the times I'm creating logos, messages and other stuff using a lot of adobe products, especialy illustrator and photoshop

"Most handy program for designer"

What do you like best?

You can create anything in this adobe illustrator and I love how they send me the quick video about a shortcut or creative things to do so I can learn while keep expanding my knowledge by using this program.

Also I love how this complete each other adobe design like adobe photoshop (which is good for photo editing) and adobe Indesign which is good for creating a publication such as book, magazine, etc.

What do you dislike?

Almost nothing. The only issue is when you try to put drop shadow on the object and try to save it, it will slow down your computer and it makes me wonder if that process can be expedite or i will loose the data that i created completely. But overall, I love every feature appears in adobe illustrator and for a designer like us, it is very important to use this program everyday.

Recommendations to others considering the product

you should get the full suite of adobe products especially if you are more into graphic designer

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I usually create logos, icons, and illustration using this program.

As you know, when creating a vector file you need to make sure the quality is good no matter they gonna enlarge it, so using adobe illustrator is the perfect program for most designer.

"Programa indispensable para diseño gráfico"

What do you like best?

Utilizo Adobe Illustrator para la mayoría de mis trabajos, ya que gracias a que trabaja con mapa de vectores hace que la imagen no pierda calidad por mucho que la aumentemos, y esto para proyector que sabes que se van a agrandar en escala es imprescindible. Me gusta que estén actualizando constantemente A.I. para ofrecer más herramientas y posibilidades de edición y hacer que el trabajo sea más sencillo.

What do you dislike?

Illustrator es un programa muy completo, pero es necesario pagar por él, así que si tienes recursos limitados es posible que no puedas pagarlo. Aún así hay descuentos para estudiantes y adobe cada vez lo pone más fácil a la hora de pagar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Este programa es bastante complejo de aprender a utilizar, por lo que si vas a usarlo desde 0 recomiendo hacer varios tutotiales o cursos hasta tener el completo control del programa, ya que solo así se le puede sacar el máximo provecho. Pero si lo que quieres es diseñar o dibujar cualquier cosa en vectores, este es tu programa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En mi trabajo lo utilizo diariamente para crear contenido digital y físico. Tanto para contenido web, como pancartas o logos. Lo suelo complementar con Photoshop para realizar todo lo necesario y me funciona muy bien a la hora de trabajar.
