Sophisticated vector drawing tools
Create distinctive designs with precise shape-building tools, fluid and painterly brushes, and advanced path controls.
Integration with other Adobe solutions
Move projects smoothly from design to print or digital output, thanks to tight integration with industry-leading Adobe software, such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, After Effects, Acrobat, and more.
Mercury performance system
Work with precision, speed, and rock-solid stability on large, complex files due to native 64-bit support on Mac OS and Windows with RAM and overall performance optimization.
Organize and view up to 100 artboards of varying sizes overlapping or on a grid. Quickly add, delete, reorder, and name. Save, export, and print independently or together.
Gradients and transparency
Interact with gradients directly on your object, defining the dimension of elliptical gradients, editing colors, and adjusting opacity. Even create gradients on strokes and meshes.
Crisp graphics and text for web and mobile
Create and align vector objects precisely on the file's pixel grid for clean, sharp raster graphics. Use text anti-aliasing options for individual text frames.
Confidently convert raster images to editable vectors with a powerful tracing engine. Get clean lines, accurate fitting, and reliable color results using simple, intuitive controls.
Use perspective grids to draw shapes and scenes in accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-point linear perspective, creating the look of realistic depth and distance.
Easily create seamlessly tiled vector patterns. Experiment freely with different types of repeating patterns that can be edited at any time for maximum design flexibility.
In-panel appearance editing
Edit object characteristics directly in the Appearance panel, eliminating the need to open fill, stroke, or effects panels.
Industry-standard graphic file formats
Work with almost any type of graphic file - including PDF, EPS, FXG, Photoshop (PSD), TIFF, GIF, JPEG, SWF, SVG, DWG, DXF, and more.
Adobe PDF file creation tools
