Adobe Illustrator Designers Choice

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I have used Adobe Illustrator to create my own calendars and websites. This has helped me save my money and invest on other businesses

Pros:

Adobe Illustrator is an easy to install software. It's compatible to most OS and computers. Marque Tools, Bucket, rubber, etc are very helpful tools.

Cons:

The software is quite heavy. One is advised to buy computers with good Rams and storage. Cutting images needs lots of patience. I wish it could be made more easier.

Ideal software for graphic designers!

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: My general experience with using this program is great. I would recommend the use of Adobe Illustrator to any designer, especially print and graphic designers. The tools are very useful and very easy to learn to handle, it only takes a little time. I have been using this program for a long time and I do not plan to stop. Very useful for making sketches and drawings. I’m sure it serves artists and illustrators well.

Pros:

What I like most about this program is the ability to manipulate the tool. The tools are various and they can achieve anything you want. For me personally, this program was mostly used for logo design and for the preparation of promotional materials. It is much easier to design promo materials and vectors in Illustrator than in Photoshop.

Cons:

Although all the tools are useful to me and I enjoy using this software, I would like to draw your attention to the speed of running the program. The start time of the program varies and sometimes I wait longer than a minute. Anyway, it's worth the wait, the software is great.

My Adobe Illustrator Review

3.0 last month New

Comments: Adobe Illustrator has given me a platform to express my creativity and progress it. I have designed mind-blowing logos, branded businesses, and designed presentations, and vector icons. it is the best vector design in the market.

Pros:

Each version of Adobe Illustrator keeps getting better than the previous. I have been using it for more than 1o year and it keeps getting better. I love the Image Tracing feature than can vectorize and raster images. It even has more features. You can also stay organise by creating and customizing layers and artboards.

Cons:

I hate it when it crashes when I'm working. I've been in a situation when I was designing a presentation. I saved the file properly and tried opening it afterward but it refuses to open. It said something that my file was corrupt. If the file is corrupt, why should it still be having a .ai extension

Design attractive interfaces with Illustrator

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I often use Adobe Illustrator to create social media interfaces for the organization I work in INDEXA, as it allows the interfaces to be designed by the company’s brand and identity in a very beautiful way.
I approved the designs that I made using Illustrator on Facebook, Instagram, and Linkedin

Pros:

From my point of view, Adobe Illustrator is the best program for designing beautiful and creative interfaces. It has the appropriate tools that allow you to clearly show your artistic touch as a graphic designer. What is better is that it is the program that is perfectly suitable for commercial designs because of its very attractive, ready-made, and flexible fonts that can be modified, allowing the completion of excellent designs in the shortest possible time

Cons:

Like other Adobe programs, it requires time to learn and reach professionalism, as well as some movement and attractiveness in the user interface compared to what is available in the After Effects and Photoshop programs
