Adobe Illustrator CS6 for Windows (Download) is a professional vector graphics creation program. Draw graphics that scale perfectly from a business card to a billboard – graphics that look great on the web, in print, in video, and on mobile devices. The CS6 version features plenty of new tools, including one that traces raster images to convert them to editable vector images.

Illustrator now features the Mercury Performance System, which provides native 64-bit support to enable you to work on complex files quickly, precisely, and with dependably rock-solid stability. Illustrator CS6 allows digital artists to work with almost any type of graphics file, including PDF, EPS, TIFF, JPEG, SWF, and more. Experienced Illustrator users will enjoy the revamped interface of CS6, which streamlines housekeeping tasks and offers a true white workspace canvas for direct color sampling.

Illustrator CS6 also adds the ability to create seamless, repeating vector patterns that can be edited. You can also add gradients to an expanded set of elements, including meshes and strokes. Of course Illustrator maintains all the functions that made it the industry-standard vector-drawing tool: versatile brushes, shape-building tools, transparency controls, and so much more.

NEW FOR CS6

Mercury Performance System
Work with precision, speed, and rock-solid stability on large, complex files due to native 64-bit support on Mac OS and Windows with RAM and overall performance optimization.
Pattern Creation
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.
Image Trace
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.
Efficient, Flexible Interface
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.
Gradients on Strokes
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.
Inline Editing in Panels
Efficiently edit names in layers, swatches, brushes, artboards, and other panels directly in the panels themselves without using intermediate dialog boxes.
Gaussian Blur Enhancement
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.
Color Panel Enhancements
Sample colors faster and more precisely using an expandable color spectrum in the Color panel. And now, copy and paste hex values into other applications more quickly.
Transform Panel Enhancements
Quickly access the popular Scale Strokes and Effects option, thanks to its new availability in the Transform panel.
Type Panel Improvements
Use arrow keys to change fonts in context for selected text. Glyphs for caps, superscripts, and more can now be accessed in one place – from the Character panel.
Dockable Hidden Tools
Tear off and dock previously hidden tools, such as the Shape and Pen tools. Dock tools horizontally or vertically for a more efficient workspace.
Workspaces with Rooms
Move fluidly from workspace to workspace with support for rooms. Achieve consistency across your work areas and maintain layout changes until you actively reset them.
Control Panel Enhancements
Quickly find what you need in a more efficient Control panel, now with consistency across options, anchor point controls, clipping masks, envelope distortions, and more.
Transparency Panel Improvements
Create and work with opacity masks more easily, thanks to the new Make Mask/Release button that now displays the masking functionality in the Transparency panel.
True White Canvas Color
Set your Illustrator CS6 workspace canvas to white for fast color sampling when you need to quickly grab a pure white.

OTHER FEATURES

Sophisticated Vector Drawing Tools
Create distinctive designs with precise shape-building tools, fluid and painterly brushes, and advanced path controls.
Integration with Other Adobe Solutions
Move projects smoothly from design to print or digital output, thanks to tight integration with industry-leading Adobe software, such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, After Effects, Acrobat, and more.
Multiple Artboards
Organize and view up to 100 artboards of varying sizes, overlapping or on a grid. Quickly add, delete, reorder, and name. Save, export, and print independently or together.
Crisp Graphics & Text for Web and Mobile
Create and align vector objects precisely on the file's pixel grid for clean, sharp raster graphics. Use text anti-aliasing options for individual text frames.
Perspective Drawing
Use perspective grids to draw shapes and scenes in accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-point linear perspective, creating the look of realistic depth and distance.
In-Panel Appearance Editing
Edit object characteristics directly in the Appearance panel, eliminating the need to open fill, stroke, or effects panels.
Industry-Standard Graphic File Formats
Work with almost any type of graphic file – including PDF, EPS, FXG, Photoshop (PSD), TIFF, GIF, JPEG, SWF, SVG, DWG, DXF, and more.
Adobe PDF File Creation Tools
Create secure, multi-page, graphic-rich PDF files with Illustrator layers retained. Share files confidently with service providers knowing that Illustrator supports PDF/X standards.
