Evening class: Adobe Illustrator

The first version of Illustrator was released in 1987. Adobe Illustrator is a computer program that is used by graphic designers, desktop publishers, illustrators, and technical artists to create vector images. Vector is very different from pixel images that Photoshop works with. With Illustrator you make illustrations, as the name suggests. But with Illustrator you can also make technical drawings, for example, cross-sections of machines. It is mainly used in the graphic world for designing a logo, typography and the design of graphic products, for example, pages of a brochure, a poster or a website. Illustrator is also an ideal program for creating infographics.
