Adobe Illustrator is a vector-based software created and developed by Adobe Systems. This commonly used software allows users to draw their own customised shapes and objects to create cartoon-like or realistic illustrations. Illustrations usually begin with line segments known as "paths" in Illustrator. These paths each have a beginning and end point. You can use the tools provided in Illustrator to merge two points by either connecting them with a line segment or overlapping the points.
