Info About Adobe Illustrator

Illustrator is a drawing program used for creating and editing vector graphics. It uses paths, rather than bitmaps, to create images, so they can be resized without losing image quality. Illustrator is commonly used for creating logos, signs, drawings, and other types of graphics. It supports layers, text, shapes, and multiple color palettes.
