- Adjustable stroke and texture:
- Adobe Illustrator allows you to adjust a path or shape’s stroke (outline) by changing its weight, colour, dash pattern, and end caps. You can also add a texture to the stroke by choosing from various pre-defined patterns or creating your custom pattern.
- Non-destructive editing: Adobe Illustrator has several features that allow you to change your artwork without permanently altering the original content. For example, you can use the Appearance panel to add multiple fills and strokes to an object and the Layers panel to create and edit object groups and sublayers.
- Smoothing of edges: Adobe Illustrator has a Smooth tool that allows you to smooth the corners of a path or shape. This is useful for creating more organic, curved shapes and eliminating jagged edges in your artwork.
- Interactivity with other programs: Adobe Illustrator can be used in conjunction with other Adobe Creative Cloud programs, such as Photoshop and InDesign, as well as with other non-Adobe programs. You can import and export various file formats, including vector and raster graphics, and copy and paste content between programs.
