Step 1 : Create
Adobe Illustrator most recent versions offer a large panel of dreamfull new features to signmakers, screenprinters and professionnals of the visual communication.
For instance, amongst the Adobe Illustrator CS 2 top new features, we retained :
Quickly and accurately convert photos, scans, or other bitmap images to editable and scalable vector paths with the Live Trace feature.
Apply color to any region or edge and use overlapping paths to create new shapes with the Live Paint tool, which intuitively colors artwork and automatically detects and corrects gaps.
Expanded stroke options
Control the position of a stroke on a path by choosing centered, inside, or outside.
Apply and globally update object-level formatting more efficiently using object styles. Save a wide range of graphic, text, and frame-level attributes as object styles to create more consistent designs and speed up production tasks.
Discover new features and find existing features faster in the context-sensitive Control palette. Accessing selection-based tools from a single location eliminates the need for multiple palettes.
Use Adobe Bridge to efficiently browse and preview your creative assets, run automation scripts, access Adobe Stock Photos, and more
