Description: Adobe Illustrator is one of the most popular and effective vector-based applications in use today. This industry-standard tool enables an information professional to create info graphics, charts, and illustrations for reports, publications, and presentations. Illustrator also is the cornerstone for many web or video presentations.
Do Microsoft Word’s built-in drawing tools fall short of your visual communication needs? Adobe Illustrator might be the solution.
For an information professional’s print purposes, Illustrator can be useful for the layout of text, shapes, and pictures to create posters, stationery, resumes, and logos.
