Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Illustrator CC

We use Adobe Illustrator CC at our school mainly in our computer lab. We purchased the entire creative cloud for use in this lab so that our students can get some graphic design experience. They have mainly used Adobe Illustrator to create simple graphics, but myself and another teacher use it for creating more advanced graphics to be used around the school. We have sometimes used it to create fliers to be put around the school, on the website, and to be given to students to take home.
  • Creating graphics.
  • Can be very fast.
  • It is a large program which means it can take up a lot of space.
  • It can be a little difficult to learn if you haven't ever used it before.
  • You can create original designs.
  • If you use other CC apps then they do really well working with each other and communicating.
Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop are very similar and have a lot of the same uses and features. The reason that we use Adobe Illustrator a little bit more is because we have some things that require really sharp edges and that is best accomplished when using Adobe Illustrator. This allows us to get a sharper image when printing materials.
I've only had to reach out to their support team one time and they were able to answer my question fairly quickly. It must have been a common issue because they made it seem like several people had the same issue. The only down side to their support was that it took awhile to get in touch with someone.
