When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
Adobe Illustrator is one of the most popular graphics editing tools, and there’s a lot to like about it.
But it’s not without its issues, including: • Its design is fairly bland, even for a professional software.
• It has a lot of free-to-play features, so it can be confusing to the casual viewer.
• Its limitations in terms of video and audio quality make it less attractive to users who want to buy into the premium services offered by Adobe.
• Users don’t get a free trial of Adobe Illustrators, meaning they can’t get the most basic features, like a powerful tool for editing digital photos.
• Illustrator doesn’t support many of the newer editing apps on the market, like Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro.
• Adobe’s support site for Adobe Illustration doesn’t provide any information on when or how to get the latest version of Adobe’s free software, or if you can upgrade to the paid version of Illustrator.
Illustrator’s website also doesn’t include a way to download the free version of the software, nor does it have any plans to add support for other Adobe products.
The company hasn’t released an official statement on how many paid users have purchased Illustrator for free.
“The fact is that many Adobe users use Adobe Illustrations to create their content for personal, noncommercial use and to create a portfolio for their business,” the company wrote in a blog post.
“Adobe doesn’t control the Adobe website or product, and our customers are responsible for ensuring they’re using Adobe products correctly.
We want you to know that if you don’t have Adobe products installed, you can’t purchase the Adobe software.”
Illustrator users who have purchased a Creative Cloud subscription can get a $1,500 bonus for every $5,000 spent on the Adobe Illustrative Suite or Creative Cloud Pro.
Adobe Illustrating also lets users create an online store for their own creative work, which costs $25 per month and includes a “free” version of Photoshop and Illustrator Pro.
It’s a free option for users who don’t want to spend money to own the Adobe product, but it does require a credit card to open up the service.
Illustration also has a free demo account that lets you download a free version for use on your own computers.
