Adobe Illustrator CS6 is the leading software product for work with vector graphics which is operated by the Adobe Mercury Performance System. Absolutely new interface is able to optimize the performance of everyday tasks and an extensive suite of tools allows users to make all design dreams come true.
Interface is the first enhancement of this version which users can see. The addition of adjustable user interface brightness, precise selection of colors and edition of layouts allows boosting the productivity of work.
Due to the Adobe Mercury Performance System you can concentrate on your work and improve the quality of your projects. This app offers 64-bit support on Mac and Window. It means that users will have no problems with opening or exporting big files and previewing their designs.
Work with vector patterns was also simplified. Designers can perform experiments with various types of repeating patterns.
“Gradients on strokes’ is one of the most significant features. Designers can apply any gradient they like to the strokes. Besides, the app offers only complete control over the placement of gradients.
The developers also enhanced tracing engine and now users have access to converting raster images to editable vectors in several clicks. With this version you are not made to use complicated controls – you can easily get precise fitting or clean lines.
The addition of line editing in panels gives users an opportunity to edit names in layers, brushes or artboards in the panels without the necessity to use dialog boxes.
Gaussian Blur Enhancement also requires attention. Such useful effects as Glows or Drop Shadows can be applied to your designs faster and without the necessity to perform other actions. If you aim to enhance accuracy, you can preview the results of your work directly on the artboard.
Besides, this particular version offers incredible color spectrum in the Color panel. Now designers can really save time on sampling colors.
Speaking about panel improvements, type and transform panel changes also require attention. With these enhancements users have access to the most popular Effects Options or Scale Strokes and can easily use arrow keys for changing fonts in the required context.
As you see Control panel became really good and now users can find everything they need within several clicks (Control panel contains almost every necessary feature).
Adobe Illustrator CS6 is probably the most successful release, developed by Adobe Systems. If your everyday work is related to designing logos or making advertisements with this release (in a combination with Photoshop) you will achieve incredible results.
