Adobe Illustrator is a vector drawing program. It is often used to draw illustrations, cartoons, diagrams, charts and logos. Unlike bitmap images that stores information in a grid of dots, Illustrator uses mathematical equations to draw out the shapes. This makes vector graphics scalable without the loss of resolution.

Illustrator is similar in scope, intended market, and functionality to its competitors,CorelDrawXara Designer Pro and Macromedia FreeHand.The latest version, Illustrator CS5, is the fifteenth generation in the product line.
