Adobe Photoshop Commands

Illustrator Tools

Illustrator has colossal assortments of tools fused in it, and when Adobe
Illustrator is launched then we go over certain tools which we use to apply the
changes; the various instruments utilized here are clarified beneath with
representations, and this Adobe Illustrator Tool is about the selection of
items from the pictures and comprises of various sub tools such as draw tool, a
type tool, paint tool, magic tool, modify the tool, navigate tool, artboard
tool, layers panel and  A most
significant aspect regarding this is we can utilize shortcuts to initiate these

Illustrator Tools

One of the most
important things about this is that we can use shortcuts to activate these

1. Select the

4. Paint tool

The Paint tool
consists of the Gradient tool, mesh tool, shape builder tool, live paint
bucket, and lives paint selection tool. The gradient tool is used to show the
shades of color and can make a new one by mixing two or more colors. Similarly,
to help this tool, it has a live paint bucket that even consists of combining
various colors.

5. Modify Tool

modification is a key part of the software as it has to make changes in the
existing without affecting the original object. Here in this, we can do lots of
changes like rotate, making the mirror of the original, scaling images,
reshaping the existing shapes, adjusting the width & height, and warping

The tool which
I like is a Twirl tool; as in this tool, as long as we hold our click, the more
twirl we’ll come to see. This twirl is used to create more complex shapes by
repeating them again and again. We can use it on the edges of the circle also;
we can change the options by double-clicking on the tool.

Even there is a
Warp tool that is used to deflate the object by controlling the points.
Further Pucker tool can be used to squash everything towards the center.

6. Navigate

Here we go with
the navigation tool, which we can say plays an eternal part, as it is used
every minute. If we make some changes in the design, then we need to zoom in
and zoom out the illustration to see how changes affect it. While applying the
effects or while applying the colors, we need a hand tool for panning objects.
As we need these tools continuously in command, we can access these by pressing
“H” and “Z”.

7. Artboard

It is the tool
that is the platform for the printable section or a platform for an object to
be exported. Before creating the artboard, we can choose different preset sizes
or define our own custom artboard. We can create a seamless artboard for a
single document and can modify its size, width, and length, and can place it anywhere
on the screen.

To access this
tool, we need to open this tool and directly add objects by dragging and
dropping them. Each artboard is bounded by a thick solid line and shows the
maximum printable area. The canvas is the region outside the artboard that can
be extended up to a 220-inch square window.

8. Layers Panel

Usually, in any
photo editing software’s layers are the common tool that is used to make a
duplicate copy of the image or illustration. By using this tool, we can keep
the original copy unaffected by the changes. As if we didn’t like any changes
made, we don’t have to do undo all the time; we can directly remove the layer
and can start with the fresh work.

Another use of
the layer is that we can hide, lock, and can save the appearance. We can even
create the template of layers that we can use to track the artwork and exchange
layers with other software like Photoshop.

Usually, in
layers, Adobe Illustrator assigns a special color to each layer as it can be
done up to 9 different colors. The same color has been reflected in the window
of the box, path, anchor points, and center of the object.

We can see in
the below image how the different layers are created and how they are
named.  We can see the four columns as
well named from the left side of the page as 1. Visibility column 2. Edit
column 3.Target column 4.Selection column. 
We can control the characteristics by clicking on them.
