Adobe Illustrator CS6 is notably faster and smarter then the previous edition.
Adobe Illustrator CS6 is a powerful vector drawing tool that includes everything you’ll need for design, web and video projects.
And workspace management just generally works a little more like you’d always hoped. So even options which were previously hidden away, such as the Shape and Pen tools, can now be torn off and docked. And you can dock tools horizontally or vertically to organise your workspace just how you’d like.
You’re looking for something more? Illustrator CS6 is relatively short on the big new features. There’s a new image tracing engine to help you convert raster images to vectors, for instance, and the program can now easily create seamless tiled vector patterns, but that’s about it.
Is it worth the upgrade, then? Tricky: the performance enhancements and UI tweaks are welcome, but may not be enough to justify the outlay.
