What is Adobe Illustrator?

Adobe Illustrator is called a vector drawing and graphic program. Where We create cartoons, diagrams, charts, and logos using in this program. Unlike bitmap images that store information in a grid of dots. This makes vector graphics scalable without the loss of resolution. Using Adobe Illustrator we can create Brochures, Posters, and Logo Designs, T-Shirts or anything to be printed.
