Pixel Perfection in Adobe Illustrator. Ever since Adobe Illustrator was launched, people wondered if they could make the transition and change the way they create and develop pixel-based artwork. As you know, before CS5 using Ai for vector pixel work was a kind of hard/clumsy process. Why? Because as opposed to Photoshop, which is a raster based software (which deals straightly with pixels), Illustrator is a vector program (that deals with points, lines and curves all mathematically drawn). In Illustrator’s early days, it wasn’t perfectly adapted to deal with the raw force of pixels.

There are a lot of articles that show the ins and outs of setting up and using Illustrator, but unfortunately there is some fragmentation of information. Before we begin I feel that I need to make sure that all of you reading this article get to understand that creating pixel based artwork as the terms suggest is a process of creating for the digital medium but things don’t stop here.

Adding transparency and depth to graphs By Dave Nagel The default graph styles in Adobe Illustrator aren't exactly awe-inspiring. Come to think of it, graphs in general are pretty boring. But they can be critical for conveying information to an audience with a short attention span. So, when the marketing department hands you some data to "jazz up" for a meeting or your editor hands you a table to format for a sidebar, it's your God-given duty as a designer to get that thing into some semblance of presentability or die trying. One popular way to do this, of course, is to generate 3D graphs to create a sense of depth in the image.

Here's a look at the type of effect we're going for. Creating the chart1. For my example, I'm going to keep things simple and use a single row of data with just three columns.
