Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor and design program developed and marketed by Adobe Inc. Originally designed for the AppleMacintosh, development of Adobe Illustrator began in 1985. Along with Creative Cloud (Adobe's shift to monthly or annual subscription service delivered over the Internet), Illustrator CC was released. The latest version, Illustrator CC 2020, was released on October 24, 2019 and is the 24th generation in the product line. Adobe Illustrator was reviewed as the best vector graphics editing program in 2018 by PC Magazine.


Versions 1–1.6 (Illustrator 88)[edit]

Development of Adobe Illustrator for the Apple Macintosh began in 1985[1] (shipping in January 1987) as a commercialization of Adobe's in-house font development software and PostScript file format. Adobe Illustrator is the companion product of Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop is primarily geared toward digital photo manipulation and photorealistic styles of computer illustration, while Illustrator provides results in the typesetting and logo graphic areas of design. Early magazine advertisements (featured in graphic design trade magazines such as Communication Arts) referred to the product as "the Adobe Illustrator". Illustrator 88, the product name for version 1.7,[2] was released in 1988 and introduced many new tools and features.[3]

Byte in 1989 listed Illustrator 88 as among the "Distinction" winners of the Byte Awards, stating that with it Adobe had "pulled ahead" of previously industry-dominant competitor Aldus FreeHand.[4]

Early versions of the software did not support working in preview mode and users needed to have two windows open on their desktop in order to have a live preview of their work. One window to show the work in progress, the other window to show a preview of the work in progress.

Versions 2–6[edit]

Although during its first decade Adobe developed Illustrator primarily for Macintosh, it sporadically supported other platforms. In the early 1990s, Adobe released versions of Illustrator for NeXT, Silicon Graphics, and SunSolaris platforms, but they were discontinued due to poor market acceptance. The first version of Illustrator for Windows, version 2.0, was released in early 1989 and flopped. The next Windows version, version 4.0, was widely criticized as being too similar to Illustrator 1.1 instead of the Macintosh 3.0 version, and certainly not the equal of Windows' most popular illustration package CorelDRAW. (Note that there were no versions 2.0 or 4.0 for the Macintosh—although, the second release for the Mac was titled Illustrator 88—the year of its release. And there was no version 6 for Windows.) Version 4 was, however, the first version of Illustrator to support editing in preview mode, which did not appear in a Macintosh version until 5.0 in 1993. Version 6 was the last truly Macintosh version of Illustrator. The interface changed radically with the following version to bring consistency between Mac and windows computer platforms. The changes remained until CS6 when some small steps were taken to restore the app to a slightly more Mac-like interface.

Versions 7–10[edit]

Adobe Illustrator 10, the last version before the Creative Suite rebrand

With the introduction of Illustrator 7 in 1997, Adobe made critical changes in the user interface with regard to path editing (and also to converge on the same user interface as Adobe Photoshop), and many users opted not to upgrade. Illustrator also began to support TrueType, effectively ending the "font wars" between PostScript Type 1 and TrueType. Like Photoshop, Illustrator also began supporting plug-ins, greatly and quickly extending its abilities.

With true user interface parity between Macintosh and Windows versions starting with 7.0, designers could finally standardize on Illustrator. Corel did port CorelDRAW 6.0 to the Macintosh in late 1996, but it was received as too little, too late. Designers tended to prefer Illustrator, Drawcord, or FreeHand, based on which software they learned first. As an example, there are capabilities in FreeHand still not available in Illustrator (higher scaling percentages, advanced find-and-replace feature, selective round-corner editing, export/print selected objects only, etc.).[5] Famously, Aldus did a comparison matrix between its own FreeHand, Illustrator and Draw, and Draw's one "win" was that it came with three different clip art views of the human pancreas.

Adobe bought Aldus in 1994 for Page Maker.[6] As part of the transaction, the Federal Trade Commission issued a complaint of Adobe Systems on October 18, 1994, ordering a divestiture of FreeHand to "remedy the lessening of competition resulting from the acquisition"[7] because of Adobe's Illustrator software. As a result, Macromedia acquired Free Hand in 1995 from its original developer, Altsys, and continued its development through 2004.[8]

The difference in strengths between Photoshop and Illustrator became clear with the rise of the Internet, Illustrator was enhanced to support Web publishing, rasterization previewing, PDF, and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics.) Adobe was an early developer of SVG for the web and Illustrator exported SVG files via the SVG File Format plugin.[9] Using the Adobe SVG Viewer (ASV), introduced in 2000, allowed users to view SVG images in most major browsers until it was discontinued in 2009.[10] Native support for SVG was not complete in all major browsers until Internet Explorer 9 in 2011.[11]

Illustrator Version 9 included a tracing feature, similar to that within Adobe's discontinued product Streamline.

Illustrator version 10 was released by Adobe in November 2001.

Versions CS–CS6[edit]

Illustrator CS (aka version 11), released by Adobe for Mac and Windows in October 2003, was the first version to include 3-dimensional capabilities allowing users to extrude or revolve shapes to create simple 3D objects.

Illustrator CS2 (version 12), released by Adobe in April 2005, was available for both the Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems. It was the last version for the Mac which did not run natively on Intel processors. Among the new features included in Illustrator CS2 were Live Trace, Live Paint, a control palette and custom workspace. Live Trace allows for the conversion of bitmap imagery into vector art and improved upon the previous tracing abilities. Live Paint allows users more flexibility in applying color to objects, specifically those that overlap. In the same year as the CS2 release, Adobe Systems announced an agreement to acquire Macromedia in a stock swap valued at about $3.4 billion and it integrated the companies' operations, networks, and customer-care organizations shortly thereafter.[12] Adobe now owned Freehand along with the entire Macromedia product line and in 2007, Adobe announced that it would discontinue development and updates to the Freehand program. Instead, Adobe would provide tools and support to ease the transition to Illustrator.[13]

Illustrator CS3 included interface updates to the Control Bar, the ability to align individual points, multiple Crop Areas, the Color Guide panel and the Live Color feature among others. CS3 was released on March 27, 2007.

CS4 was released in October 2008. It features a variety of improvements to old tools along with the introduction of a few brand-new tools acquired from FreeHand. The ability to create multiple art boards is one of CS4's main additions from Freehand. The art boards allow you to create multiple versions of a piece of work within a single document. Other tools include the Blob Brush, which allows multiple overlapping vector brush strokes to easily merge or join, and a revamped gradient tool allowing for more in-depth color manipulation as well as transparency in gradients.

CS5 was released in April 2010. Along with a number of enhancements to existing functionality, Illustrator CS5's new features include a Perspective Grid tool taken from FreeHand, a Bristle Brush (for more natural and painterly looking strokes) and a comprehensive update to strokes, referred to by Adobe as "Beautiful Strokes".

Version CS6 was the 16th generation of Adobe Illustrator. Adobe added many more features and several bug fixes such as a new user interface, layer panels, RGB codes, and color ramp to increase performance. CS6 was released on April 23, 2012.

Version CC[edit]

Along with Creative Cloud (the result of Adobe's shift on its release strategy), Illustrator CC was released. This version (the 17th) was the first to be only sold in a subscription-based service model, in line with the other software in the formerly called Creative Suite. As part of Creative Cloud, this version brought improvements in that subject such as color, font and program settings syncing, saving documents to the cloud, and integration with Behance (a creative collaborative network), as well as other features such as a new touch-compatible type tool, images in brushes, CSS extraction, and files packaging.[14]


Starting with version 1.0, Adobe chose to license an image of Sandro Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" from the Bettmann Archive and use the portion containing Venus' face as Illustrator's branding image. John Warnock desired a Renaissance image to evoke his vision of PostScript as a new Renaissance in publishing, and Adobe employee Luanne Seymour Cohen, who was responsible for the early marketing material, found Venus' flowing tresses a perfect vehicle for demonstrating Illustrator's strength in tracing smooth curves over bitmap source images. Over the years the rendition of this image on Illustrator's splash screen and packaging became more stylized to reflect features added in each version.

The image of Venus was replaced (albeit still accessible via easter egg) in Illustrator CS (11.0) and CS2 (12.0) by a stylized flower to conform to the Creative Suite's nature imagery.[15] In CS3, Adobe changed the suite branding once again, to simple colored blocks with two-letter abbreviations, resembling a periodic table of elements.[16] Illustrator was represented by the letters Ai in white against an orange background (oranges and yellows were prominent color schemes in Illustrator branding going back as far as version 4.0). The CS4 icon is almost identical, except for a slight alteration to the font and the color which is dark gray. The CS5 icon is also virtually the same, except that this time the logo is like a box, along with all the other CS5 product logos, with the "Ai" bright yellow. CS6 changed it a bit to a brown square with a yellow border and yellow lettering, and in CC 2014 the colors were upgraded to a sharper tone and thinner borders.


Compatibility with Inkscape:[17] Inkscape's native format is SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), which is supported by Adobe Illustrator, but the two implementations are not 100% compatible. Inkscape also exports to PS, EPS and PDF, formats which Illustrator can recognize.


A sidebar that appears at the left of the screen with a variety of tools to select, create, and manipulate objects or artworks in Illustrator. These tools can be selected as following: drawing, typing, painting, reshaping, slicing and cutting, symbolism, moving and zooming, and graph.[18] Some tools have a small triangle at the bottom right of the toolbox icon. A small triangle has the option to view or expand some hidden tools by hold down the mouse button on the triangle.[19]

Some examples of basic tools in illustrator are selection tools, paintbrush tools, pen tools, pencil tools e.g. Selection tools are used to the layout, adjust, and organize the artwork by selecting, positioning, and stacking object accurately. Moreover, selection tools can group, lock or hide, and measure objects.[20]Paintbrush tools can be used to modify the appearance of the artwork. There are different types of brushes: calligraphic, scatter, art, pattern, and bristle.[21]Pen tools create straight and curved lines for the artwork and they can add anchor points to paths and delete from paths. Pencil tools allow the user to draw and edit freehand lines.

What is Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a software application for image editing and photo retouching for use on Windows or MacOS computers. Photoshop offers users the ability to create, enhance, or otherwise edit images, artwork, and illustrations. Changing backgrounds, simulating a real-life painting, or creating an alternative view of the universe are all possible with Adobe Photoshop. It is the most widely used software tool for photo editing, image manipulation, and retouching for numerous image and video file formats. The tools within Photoshop make it possible to edit both individual images as well as large batches of photos. There are several versions of Photoshop, including Photoshop CC, Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop Express, a version of Photoshop for iOS with reduced features. Adobe Photoshop is available on its own as a subscription that includes Photoshop Lightroom, and as part of the larger Creative Cloud subscription.

How is Photoshop Used?

Adobe Photoshop is a critical tool for designers, web developers, graphic artists, photographers, and creative professionals. It is widely used for image editing, retouching, creating image compositions, website mockups, and adding affects. Digital or scanned images can be edited for use online or in-print. Website layouts can be created within Photoshop; their designs can be finalized before developers move on to the coding stage. Stand-alone graphics can be created and exported for use within other programs.

What is Photoshop CC?

Adobe Photoshop CC is the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop, available by subscription. It is considered to be the professional-level version of the Photoshop family of products. Photoshop CC is available together with Photoshop Lightroom, or as part of a larger Creative Cloud subscription. Photoshop CC is an advanced imaging software used by designers, web professionals, video editors, and photographers to alter or manipulate digital images. Photoshop is primarily used to edit 2D images, although it does offer some 3D image editing functionality. Photoshop includes image analysis functionality, and can be used to prepare images for use online or in-print.

What is Photoshop Elements?

Adobe Photoshop Elements is the consumer-level version of the Photoshop family of products. Photoshop Elements contains many of the professional capabilities that are found in Adobe Photoshop CC, yet they are provided with more simplistic options designed with an entry-level user in mind. More specifically, it is designed for amateur photographers and digital photography hobbyists. Photoshop Elements is built using the same core digital imaging technology as Photoshop CC. Commonly used capabilities of Photoshop Elements include:

  • Manipulating the color of an image.
  • Cropping images.
  • Repairing flaws, such as dust on the lens or red eyes.
  • Drawing on an image with a pen or pencil.
  • Adding text to images.
  • Removing people or objects within an image.
  • Organizing photos for quick access.
  • Publishing images online or send via email.

What is Photoshop Lightroom?

Photoshop Lightroom is part of the Photoshop family of products and is primarily used by photographers for batch processing of large volumes of images. Lightroom does have the ability to create and save image presets that can be applied to a large batch of photos at one time. It also features non-destructive imaging tools; so that the original files remain intact. Lightroom has the ability to edit RAW files. The light balance and white exposure can be manipulated or adjusted within a RAW file. However, Photoshop Lightroom does not have many of the operating features or functions of Adobe Photoshop CC or Adobe Photoshop Elements, and uses a different interface.

How much does Photoshop cost?

The cost of Adobe Photoshop varies for each specific Photoshop product. Photoshop Elements costs $100 and can be used forever after purchasing it. This software is considered to have a perpetual license. The cost of the other Photoshop products ranges from $10 per month to $60 per month depending upon the type of subscription and the length of the subscription. The lower cost options include the Photoshop-only apps, while the higher cost options include Photoshop along with other Creative Cloud tools. Discounted plans are also available for students, teachers, and organizations looking to purchase licenses for groups of 10 or more employees.

How to learn Photoshop

There are several ways to learn Adobe Photoshop. Popular methods include taking in-person Photoshop classes, live online Photoshop classes, learning via online Photoshop tutorials, and Photoshop books. Classes are designed to help students benefit from both group learning activities and one-on-one instruction. Classroom learning also has the advantage of helping students overcome challenges or obstacles through guided instruction. These learning opportunities are particularly helpful when new features or tools are released. American Graphics Institute offers Photoshop classes in Boston, as well as New York City and also Philadelphia.

Adobe Photoshop training with an online instructor is the ideal solution for students with busy schedules who are not able to travel to a classroom. Online classes offer a hands-on approach to learning that can be particularly beneficial to beginners. They can help first time users navigate all of the features and tools of Adobe Photoshop. From learning how to create paths to understanding which file format should be selected, online instructors can help beginners quickly become Photoshop experts.

Finally, online tutorials, such as those found in videos, digital texts, guided experiences, or FAQ pages, can be used to learn Adobe Photoshop at a personal pace. Learning Adobe Photoshop via online tutorials and self-guided experiences are the ideal choice for students who enjoy overcoming challenges through their own intuition. These tools are especially helpful for students who want to learn through trial and error, as well as those individuals who learn best through a hands-on approach.

Organizations, groups, and individuals with specific needs can also benefit from private Photoshop training which can occur on-site or off-site. Such private training can focus on learning specific aspects of Photoshop.

Photoshop Mac vs. Windows Differences

There are very few differences between Photoshop on MacOS vs Windows computers. Menus, options, panels, and tools are found in the same location on both Mac and Windows versions of Photoshop. There is no functionality difference between Adobe Photoshop on a Mac or Windows computers. Before Adobe Photoshop can be used on either Mac or Windows computers, the computer itself must meet the following minimum requirements.

Computer Requirements for Photoshop

The following are the minimum requirements for using Photoshop on Windows or Mac OS computers.

Computer requirements for Photoshop Windows:

To use Photoshop on a Windows computer, a computer must meet these requirements:

  • Intel® Core 2 or AMD Athlon® 64 processor; 2 GHz processor or greater.
  • Microsoft Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10.
  • 2 GB or more of RAM.
  • 2.6 GB or more of available hard-disk space for 32-bit installation; 3.1 GB or more of available hard-disk space for 64-bit installation; as well as the additional free space required for installation.
  • 1024 x 768 display with 16-bit color and 512 MB or more of dedicated VRAM.
  • OpenGL 2.0-capable system.
  • Internet connection is required to activate software, validate subscriptions, and access various online services.

Computer requirements for Photoshop Mac:

To use Photoshop on a Mac OS computer, a computer must meet these requirements:

  • Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support.
  • MacOS version 10.13 (High Sierra), MacOS version 10.12 (Sierra), or Mac OS X version 10.11 (El Capitan).
  • 2 GB or more of RAM.
  • 4 GB or more of available hard-disk space for installation, as well as the additional free space required for installation.
  • 1024 x 768 display with 16-bit color and 512 MB or more of dedicated VRAM.
  • OpenGL 2.0-capable system.
  • Internet connection is required to activate software, validate subscriptions, and access various online services.

Photoshop file formats

Adobe Photoshop can save or export images and graphics in a variety of file formats. These formats are used for different purposes. For example, images used on websites generally need to be small so they can load quickly; while images that are being included in a 3D product rendering may need to be of higher resolution and include additional details. Some images may contain only pixels, while others may contain a mixture of pixels and vectors. A few file formats also use compression techniques to reduce the size of the image, and certain compression options intentionally discard data to make the file size smaller. In order to preserve all Adobe Photoshop features, including effects, masks, and layers the Photoshop file format (PSD) is used.

File formats Photoshop can open or save include:

  • Photoshop Format (PSD) -- PSD files can be up to 2 GB in size. Only Photoshop PSD as the ability to save all elements of the edited image or graphic.
  • Large Document Format (PSB) -- PSB files can be larger than 2 GB in size and support up to 300,000 pixels in any dimension. The applied layers and filters are also supported.
  • Tagged-Image File Format (TIFF) -- This flexible bitmap image format is supported by numerous applications and computer platforms. CMYK, RGB, grayscale, and indexed color are supported. TIFF documents have a maximum file size of 4 GB. If a TIFF file is opened in another application, then only a flattened image will be presented even though the layers have been saved.
  • RAW -- RAW files can be larger than 2 GB in size. RAW files are flexible and can be used to transfer images between computers or applications. This format does support CMYK, RGB, and grayscale images; however files must be flattened before saving.
  • Portable Document Format (PDF) -- Fonts, page layouts, vector, and bitmap graphics can be accurately displayed with PDF files. Additionally, electronic links can be included within a PDF file. Up to 16 bits per channel images can be saved without quality degradation.
  • Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) -- This file format is often used to display indexed color graphics or images within a designated HTML document. GIF minimizes file sizes and reduces the electronic transfer time. It does not support alpha channels.
  • Portable Network Graphics (PNG) -- Lossless compression is achieved with PNG. It supports 24 bit images; however, some web browsers do not support PNG files. PNG does preserve transparency in both RGB and grayscale images. It also supports indexed color, grayscale, RGB, and bitmap mode images.
  • Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) -- This file format is often selected for continuous-tone images for HTML documents. It supports grayscale, RGB, and CMYK color modes. It retains all color information within an RGB image, however it compresses the file size by discarding selected data. A JPEG is automatically decompressed when the file is opened.
  • Cineon -- The 10 bits per channel digital format was developed by Kodak. It is used to output back to film without losing image quality. It can be used in the Cineon Digital Film System.

History of Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop was originally developed in 1987 by the brothers John and Thomas Knoll. Since its original development, Photoshop has evolved from a simple image editing tool to a comprehensive suite for image manipulation. While early versions of Photoshop were produced and distributed by the Knoll brothers, the software was acquired by Adobe Systems and became Adobe Photoshop.

The earliest version of the software released by Adobe came in February 1990. It allowed users to display and save files in multiple formats on early MacOS computers. Users could also adjust the hue, balance, and color saturation of images. There were minimal painting capabilities, as well as soft edge selections. Graphic designers were quick to adopt Adobe Photoshop. From the addition of CMKY color support and Duotones in Version 2.0 to the new painting engine and vector text of Version 7.0, each version rapidly become more comprehensive than the last.

Photoshop Photoshop CS vs Photoshop CC

The introduction of the Creative Suite branding provided each version of Photoshop with a "CS" followed by a version number after the first version of the Creative Suite. Thus, the versions of Adobe Photoshop after Photoshop CS became Photoshop CS2, then Photoshop CS3, which continued through June 2013. At that time, Adobe introduced a new licensing program in which Photoshop was rented either by the month or year as part of a subscription. At that time, Photoshop CS was replaced by Photoshop CC for Creative Cloud. The Creative Cloud designation is followed by the year in which the application received its most recent update.
