Illustrator Basics

While Photoshop is a pixel-based graphics software great for photo edits, complex images, small graphics and digital art, Illustrator is a graphic software that is a system of equations that specify the parameters of shapes and their relation to one another in space. It gives you a final image that can be blown up or shrunk to any size and still look good. Illustrator is great for creating logos, posters, large graphics, diagrams, icons and text.
