    what is Illustrator used for?

    Adobe Illustrator Training Courses Leicester & Leicestershire - online and onsiteIllustrator gives you the power to create vector graphics and create images from scratch or existing artwork using a variety of tools and techniques.


    You could use the pen to draw your own artwork, import artwork from a drawing board or place an existing image. Once bought into Illustrator these images can then be recoloured, edited and generally manipulated.


    What are Vector Images?

    Vector images are created by mathematical formulas as opposed to Photoshop images, which are pixel based photos. During the course the explanation given for vector v pixel images is if artists such as Vincent Van Gogh decided to use digital software for painting then he’d use Illustrator whereas photographers such as David Bailey would choose Photoshop.
