Adobe Illustrator CS6 - a vector graphics software, used worldwide by designers of all types who want to create digital graphics, illustrations, and typography for all kinds of media: print, web, interactive, video, and mobile. Vector graphics are one of the two most commonly used graphic formats in design, the other being bitmap (or raster) graphics. Vector graphics, like those created with Illustrator CS6, are resolution independent, which means they can be resized infinitely with no loss of quality. For example, the same logo design created with Illustrator can be used on a business card or an outdoor billboard, always maintaining the accuracy and detail of the original design. Work with precision, speed, and rock-solid stability on large, complex files due to native 64-bit support with RAM and overall performance optimization. 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. Convert raster images to editable vectors with a completely new tracing engine. Get clean lines, accurate fitting, and reliable color results without using complex controls. Take fewer steps to accomplish daily tasks in a new, streamlined interface. Enjoy inline editing of layer names, precise color sampling, and user interface brightness that's smoothly adjustable to match other Adobe tools. Apply gradients to your strokes - along the length, across the width, or within the stroke itself - all with complete control over gradient placement and opacity. Efficiently edit names in layers, swatches, brushes, artboards, and other panels directly in the panels themselves without using intermediate dialog boxes. See that Gaussian Blur and effects such as Drop Shadows and Glows are applied significantly faster than before. To improve accuracy, preview directly on the artboard rather than in a dialog box. And now, copy and paste hex values into other applications more quickly.
