What is the major difference b/w Photoshop and Illustrator

Photoshop and Illustrator are two of Adobe's massively popular graphics programs. If you're working on a new project, you might have a hard time figuring out which of the two programs will work best for you, since on the surface they seem so similar. We've compiled some of the main differences between Photoshop and Illustrator to help you get started


Adobe Photoshop is a great program for modifying already created images or graphics, like photos, and is Adobe's most popular program. Raster or bitmap graphics are created in Photoshop. These graphics can sometimes look a little pointed since raster images are made up of individual colored squares, known as pixels. Everything in Photoshop is just a series of pixels, so if you're scaling something up or down, it can lose its quality very quickly. Photoshop is a popular choice for web graphics, photo editing and designs since those projects will stay at a fixed size. Editing photos is awesome in Photoshop because it includes a lot of unique filters, special effects, and tools. Another great benefit of Photoshop is that you can have complete control of your projects since you can edit your graphic pixel-by-pixel.


Adobe Illustrator is an advanced vector-based software. So, unlike Photoshop's pixel-based format, it uses mathematical constructs to create vector graphics. In Illustrator, a line is composed of two dots connected by a computer algorithm, instead of just a line of pixels. Because of this, Illustrator is used often to create logos or anything that may need to be printed or displayed at different sizes. In fact, companies which offer professional logo design service are using this tool primarily to create custom logos. A vector graphic will never lose its quality if it's scaled up or down. Illustrator will also give you a better print output since it's not resolution dependent. A drawback of Illustrator is that it can't be used easily to modify images that are already created since there are limited filters and image editing tools available to you.
