Of course it is software that serves more to the graphic and illustration sides but we are trying to deal the illustration side of the web page, isn’t it?
The program is one of the dearest graphics software to the designers; because it gives the user freedom and flexibility to create composition with texts and images. You can do all the artworks with the built in plug-ins that would produce astonishing effects. When you open the software it would ask what type of documents are you creating.
