Adobe Products


Adobe IllustratorAdobe® Illustrator® 9.0 expands your creative freedom and enhances your productivity with its new Web graphics tools, versatile transparency capabilities, powerful object and layer effects, and other innovative features. Now you can use these fast, flexible tools to transform your creative ideas into sophisticated graphics for use on the Web, in print, or in dynamic media projects.

Flash and SVG output With Adobe® Illustrator® 9.0, you can preserve your artwork in vector form when exporting it for the Web. Illustrator 9.0 provides excellent support for exporting files to Flash (SWF) format, as well as to the new Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) standard. Both Web vector formats maintain high-quality artwork and fonts, while producing smaller file sizes and faster download times than bitmap formats. Flash is widely used to design vector-based Web pages and Web animations; when exporting graphics to this format, you have the option of exporting the entire graphic to a single SWF file; exporting each layer to a separate frame in a single SWF file; or exporting each layer to a separate SWF file. SVG is an emerging, completely open standard that was developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and numerous industry players, including Adobe Systems, IBM, Netscape, Sun, Corel, Hewlett-Packard, and others. The SVG standard provides all the benefits of the Flash format, plus support for the following features: Type 1 and TrueType fonts, extensible markup language (XML), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), interactive actions, and dynamic HTML animation. When preparing SVG output, you can assign scripted events to objects using the SVG Interactivity palette, and then export that information with the file. Illustrator also ships with the SVG Viewer plug-in, which works with different browsers to play back SVG graphics and Web pages.
