Top 10 Best Adobe Illustrator video tutorials

If you're creating an image using Adobe Photoshop, then you might have faced problems with image quality when zooming in. If you're looking for a vector tool to design a graphic image without losing the picture quality while zooming in then Adobe Illustrator is the best option for you.

What is Adobe Illustrator?
Adobe Illustrator is an excellent tool that is used for creating the amazing vector graphic images such as charts, cartoons, logos, flyers, brochures, Infographics and many more. The best thing about the Illustrator is, it is not resolution dependent, meaning using this tool you get a better print output and also, vector files are very small in file size and scalable to any format.

Raster vs Vector images
Vector images retain the quality of the images without being distorted/pixeled when zoom-in the images. Look at the below images, the left-side image is pixelated and quality of the images is not restored perfectly when you're zoom in. At the same time, the right side image retains quality even after the images many times.
Alternatives of the Adobe Illustrator are Affinity Designer, SketchappGravitInskscape etc,.
