As we all know, Adobe Illustrator is one of the most popular and comprehensive piece of software for vector graphics. It gives you a whole lot of control over the design elements that is unmatched by other competing softwares for graphic designers. AI CS6 has got some great features that were missing in its predecessor, mostly concerning path editing and user interface. It was made easier to use by converging the interface with Photoshop and integrating support for third party plugins. It also began supporting TrueType font, web publishing, scalable vector graphics, PDF and rasterization previewing.
