Adobe Illustrator CS6 for Windows (Mac) 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.
