Adobe Illustrator Guide
Illustrator is a vector drawing program which is often used to draw illustrations, cartoons, diagrams, charts and
logos. Unlike bitmap images that stores information in a grid of dots, Illustrator uses mathematical equations to draw
out the shapes. This makes vector graphics scalable without the loss of resolution.

Advantages of Vector Graphics
  •    Scalable without resolution loss
  •    Lines are crisp and sharp at any sizes
  •    Print at high resolution
  •    Smaller file size
  •    Good for drawing illustrations

Disadvantages of vector graphics
  •    Drawings tend to look flat and cartoon
  •    Hard to produce photo realistic drawings
