Illustrator CC for Sprout
The powerful Illustrator toolset is used by artists and graphic designers to create vector illustrations, charts and graphs, logos, drawings, and more. Illustrator for Sprout provides a fast, more natural way to create, connecting your digital content with physical objects.
"Optimizing Adobe Illustrator for Sprout by HP empowers artists, designers, and creatives," said Michael Ninness, senior director of product management, Web and Graphic Design, Adobe. "With Sprout, designers can easily incorporate physical objects into their illustrations and convert them into vector art by scanning them directly into the application for instant creativity."
Sprout gives users a unique, hands-on way to interact with personal content -- two touch surfaces work together to transform the desk surface into a digital-physical workspace. Designers using Illustrator for Sprout will enhance their productivity. Artists can scan and capture physical objects (in 2D or 3D) directly into the application, significantly enhancing their artwork in a matter of seconds. Designers can instantly scan in sketches and hand-drawn concepts that can be manipulated or traced to create digital artwork that is ready for production. Artwork can then be further manipulated on the Sprout mat.
