Choosing the Right Adobe Program
The Adobe Creative Suite offers a portfolio of software applications for graphic design, web design, video editing, photography and much more. If you are confused as to which application is right for you, it is useful to understand the key differences between the three major graphic design programs in the Creative Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
Photoshop is the industry leader in raster image graphics creation and manipulation software. Adobe Photoshop is one of the best tools for editing raster images. If you take a photo with a digital camera, you can use Photoshop to make professional edits such as brightness, colour and more.
However, Photoshop can also create new designs from scratch. You can combine images from several sources and use advanced layer techniques to create a new image. The blending and combination of many small images, plus the control of all the pixel information makes Photoshop an incredibly powerful graphic design tool.
Illustrator is a vector graphics program. Instead of using pixels like a raster graphic, vector graphics use paths and points to create objects based on mathematical proportions. Therefore vector images can be scaled without losing quality.
Graphic designers mainly use Illustrator for corporate projects like logos and brochures, but the design possibilities are endless. Vector images will have less detail than a raster graphic because there is not a high resolution of pixels in the document.
Once you have designed your graphics in Photoshop or Illustrator, you may be ready to layout your images into a final design. Whether for print or web, Adobe InDesign is an essential tool for digital layout.
InDesign was made to replace the manual design layout process. Popular features of the program include text styling, master page options, and smart guides. In addition, there are long document features to help you keep long documents organised.
InDesign can output the finished design into proper media and includes some handy features to mark-up your design for the web or prepare a file for commercial printing.
All three of these Adobe products have some cross-over between them.
While Photoshop is intended for raster graphics first, there are some vector tools built into the program. In addition, Illustrator is primarily used to create vector graphics, but it also allows you to place raster images into the designs and can handle the translation of the two types of images.
Finally, while InDesign is not considered to be an editing tool, there are some basic editing features available and it also includes the ability to add effects to your images too.
As a designer, the general rule is that you need to use the right tool for the job. If you want to learn more about the Adobe Suite of programs but need some help to get started, get in touch.
