Adobe Illustrator is primarily a vector graphics application, so it does not have the capabilities for editing raster (bitmap) graphics images that Adobe's other main product Photoshop has. However, it does have some ability to make changes to these images. For example, if you have placed an image as a background in a document that you would like to give a blurred appearance to, this is easily and quickly done.
