Adobe Illustrator CC Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • Ease of use and wide breadth of free tutorials and learning tools out there for it.
  • This software is a good to make logos, i can't say it is easy to use but you should learn how to use it.
  • This software does everything you will ever need it to do. It's relatively easy to use and produces a high quality logo
  • What I like the most about this software is the versatility of design features. I love how clean my designs end up looking.
Cons
  • It's not cheap... My company is paying for mine and I am not sure I could afford this on my own.
  • It's very complex and expensive. Alternatives that have 80% of he features can handle at 40% the price
  • Unfortunately, Adobe Illustrator is expensive. I do not like the new annual contract pricing structure.
  • You get what you pay for and Illustrator isn't cheap, however with a monthly subscription it is affordable.

I get to create my designs whenever I need, without having to learn sophisticated features.I use it for several years now because it offers a good balance between features and ease of use. I know Photoshop is the king when it comes to features, but that has a steep learning curve. I mainly do business related stuff for the company (i.e. logos, promotional materials) and Illustrator works perfect. For me its features are more than enough, and easiness of use primes. Highly recommend it for those that need a graphic design app but don't want to learn the sophisticated Photoshop.

I love working with Adobe Illustrator. It's a stable peace of software that can handle large projects. The Overall Quality is perfect. It's professional software that will help with your business goals. Professional as well as beginners can use this software which will meet any needs- from simple web sketches to professional vector art/graphics. The Ease of Use is not perfect , however it's good. I personally like the design of Adobe Illustrator and find it simple. You can customize your work space and easily access each tool and it's properties. I love the integrations with Adobe Suite as well as the similarities with Photoshop. If you used the Adobe Suite before you will find yourself in very similar World. On the other hand, if you are complete beginner it might take a while until you learn the basics. Features & Functionality are great! Adobe Illustrator has ton of tools that allows you to create basically anything . I use it mostly for web graphics , however I do not think there is lack of features . Value for Money is great as well. It's not cheap solution , however it's perfect value for your money.

I have been using illustrator for many years and it is among the best vector based image editing tools out there. The UI/UX follows that of the rest of creative cloud and is easy to learn and use. The best part is that the user base is very large and you can find tutorials and videos all over the net. Ease of use and wide breadth of free tutorials and learning tools out there for it.

Flexibility and a professional product are the biggest benefits of Adobe Illustrator!Adobe Illustrator has the ability to take an idea and bring it to life. With less expensive software designs are limited to the effects and designs available. Illustrator, in contrast, is vector based and allows you to create, manipulate and design any way needed. Designs become a fluid work instead of having to "start over". Adobe Illustrator is a well-developed platform that is virtually error-free and once opened works without delay. The multiple flyout menus are consistent with Adobe Photoshop so it integrates well with or without Adobe Bridge.

Illustrator is probably the best vector-graphics editing program. I used a free trial not so long ago and lots of tools and features seemed similar with Photoshop. Its a great program to create anything from simple drawings to complex designs. Files can be exported in different formats for web, mobile or print.
