Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator: The Difference

In the field of digital marketing the importance of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator can never be belittled. However, it has often been seen that ideas about the two are often jumbles up, without knowledge about the fine lines of differences between the two.

To make it clear, it can be stated like this.

Adobe Photoshop is a widely acclaimed and popular photo and graphic editor tool that has made possible the development of graphics in infinite ways by dint of its innovative and creative tools. Graphic designers find this tool to be of great value. It has benefited graphic designing in multiple ways possible, through its user friendly creative ideas.

Adobe Illustrator is graphic editor software that enhances the interactive aspects of images and graphics through modern computing. Although, considered to be a modern version of the traditional Adobe Photoshop, fine lines of differences between the two cannot be overlooked.

The following are the differences between Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator:

Editor tool Vs. Software: While Adobe Photoshop is a graphic designing tool mainly used for the sake of augmenting the visual appeal of a graphic or an image by rendering some major changes, Adobe Illustrator is Software, supporting the former.

Difference based on aspects: Instead of making use of pixels, unlike Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator makes use of vector graphics, as a primary element of graphic editing. While measurement related numerical calculations take an upper hand in case of Adobe Illustrator, pixels overpowers Photoshop, enhancing the visual appeal of the images, by bringing changes in the graphic content.

Fixed Vs. variable size: Adobe Photoshop being primarily working with pixels, enlarging an image may be challenging under it as with an enlargement made, pixels get distorted stripping the image off its visual appeal. On the contrary, Adobe Illustrator can enlarge an image with high accuracy, sustaining the original quality of the graphic. As a result, the visual appeal of the image is retained and the image does not get altered, unlike that in the case of Adobe Photoshop.

Flexibility vs limitations: Adobe Photoshop is more user-friendly and gripping as it is equipped with a large array of ideas and tools that can do wonders to the graphics. Adobe Illustrator often fails to attain such popularity as it can only bring certain selective alterations to the graphics. With its limited resources, Adobe Illustrator can often fail to modify a graphic in tune with your choices. Thus it can be said that although more or less similar, subtle differences associated with technical output, visual appeal and provisions, do lie between the two.
