10 Essential Adobe Illustrator CC2017 Tips
Adobe Illustrator is probably the most used program by both artists and graphic designers alike when creating vector images. Like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, this program is also used to enhance an image. But more than that, it assists designers in creating logos, graphs, digital illustrations, and other important elements of a web page.
Added Features of Adobe Illustrator 2017
Every graphic designer knows that the more options you have for editing, the better the chances of getting their desired outcome. There are already a lot of minor setbacks from the previous version that the new one has already surpassed. So it’s very helpful that Adobe has recently released a new and improved version of the Illustrator.
One of the added features on the new version is the ability to crop any linked or embedded images which were a real downfall of the previous one. There are built-in cropping controls as well which adds more options to the editing process. Another one is the added convenience of finding the ideal font to use. There is now an option where you can choose from the fonts you have used before or get one from a “favorites” folder.
