Vector (vector graphic file format), usually called vector graphic or vector arts or vector file, is a graphic media format that created using Adobe Illustrator, or Corel Draw, or InkScape, or any other vector graphic editor. Contrary with ‘Raster image’ or pixel based image (i.e jpeg, png, gif, bmp, tiff, psd, etc.), vector graphic can be scaled to any size without losing its quality, because it contains the physical attributes with it, such as width, height, line-stroke, fill-colors value that can easily be edited back with vector graphic editor.

Every single vector graphic in this world is created by someone, and you might be one of the original source creator. We create graphics and buyers, either they are designers as well or non designers, buy from us. Designers buy from us because it is much cheaper and time-saving than to create new for a project.

Vector graphic market still considered less available compared to stocks image or stocks photo market that flooded anywhere in the digital media stocks we can find. So this is our opportunity to fulfill the buyers demand out there, in fact creating vector graphics can only be done by artist or designer like you, not everybody can do it.

14. Is micro stock industry a scam ?

When you have a business model whereby everyone has to pay to gain, it is then obvious that it is not a scam.

15. Why should I sell my vector graphics through micro stock agencies ?

Illustrator Alternative, Imagined by Designers

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Design, Software, Vector

Today we will share an another new designer’s chosen vector and design apps that have been talked about since couple of months ago in social medias. Many designers have tried the free beta version with positive feedback and soon it will be launching the official version.

Affinity Designer


Vector Art & Design for Mac

Perhaps some of you have been already knowing about this Affinity Designer and so far 30,000+ downloads has been recorded according to their statistic. This new designer’s app which still in beta, has been test drive by designers and they express it being fast, easier and better than the popular Illustrator and Photoshop by Adobe, according to some reviews we read on twitter & facebook.

Affinity Designer Tools
The vector tools & raster tools

What catch our interest to share this app in here are some opinions say that Affinity Designer is a real Illustrator alternative, or Illustrator + Photoshop, in one.. Vector + Raster graphic app. Imagine every time you work on Illustrator (vector drawing), and Photoshop (image editing) running at the same time, save and switching windows, back again. With Affinity Designer, its smart persona with just a click to change from vector workspace to raster workspace, on the same document.. it fast, easier & works smart.

“Imagined by designers, created for Mac”

Affinity for Mac

 

Owned by Serif, a designers apps company who creates DrawPlus (vector drawing editor), PagePlus (desktop publisher), PhotoPlus (photo editor), WebPlus (html editor) and many more. Now they creates Affinity for Mac a new professional vector editor + raster editor in one package. They claim to gives you as designers, exactly what you need for the highest quality artwork, photos and designs – accurate, high quality tools in fast, innovative, reliable apps with flair.

“Vector drawing + Raster illustration”

“A million per cent Zoom”

Pro

Some good points we can share in here are (they’re many), Pan and Zoom at 60 fps, a million percent zoom, transform objects in correct z-order, real-time adjustments or applying effects, always see live previews of brushes or tools. Whether it’s a 100 megapixel image or the most complex vector drawing with thousands of curves, it’s still the same and never runs out of memory.. which may happened to you, system freeze unexpectedly or error message occurred before you save your design works, didn’t you..?

File format supported includes standard image formats, Adobe Illustrator (AI), Adobe Photoshop (PSD), PDF, EPS, SVG, Adobe and Macromedia FreeHand (FH) as well, good point for FreeHand users.

PSD Ai PDF supported
file formats supported
File formats supported

Con

Unfortunately, its only created for Mac, with minimum requirement start with OS 10.7 and no news for other platform so far. Windows user may hope Serif will release for Win version, or stick with Adobe CC, or Inkscape as Illustrator alternative.. see our previous post about Vector Graphic Editor.

Currently Affinity Designer beta is free to download and they will launch Affinity Designer on this coming Thursday, 2nd October 2014, with the first week, until 9th Oct. at 20% discount, the discounted price will be $39.99 (no, this is not advertisement). Are you comparing the price with Adobe Illustrator CC or Adobe Photoshop CC, which is $19.99 per month (x 12 month) = $239.88 a year for a single app (x 2 for both app, Ai & Ps)..? ☺

Adobe Illustrator Scripts Collections

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Software, Vector

 
Adobe Illustrator (Ai) Scripts are usually third party scripts designed by experience users to help designers saved a lot of time in creating and completing tasks with the graphic software. When Illustrator users stuck on complex works or handling some trifling tasks that have to be done, these Scripts come in handy. One of the example of available script already built-in Illustrator is Live Trace function that handles tracing image (in variety of mode) in just a click.

Illustrator itself doesn’t have all the features that we might have imagine it suppose to provide whenever we stuck on ‘how to do this and that’ in the app. Here come these Scripts made by users for users purposely to realize the imaginations.

There are some users on the internet that create Ai Scripts and provide them as free to use, just download and copy it in your Adobe Illustrator installed directory; Adobe Illustrator/Presets/Scripts (folder). When you run the software, go to top menu; File > Scripts > Other Script… the new scripts will appear here (sub menu). Anyway let see in these list of Ai Scripts (if you found some usefull) we managed to collect and links to their source. Before that,  you’re advisable to look at Adobe Illustrator Scripting Guide & Refference.

 

Scriptographer

Scriptographer is an open source scripting plugin for Adobe Illustrator created to give the user the possibility to extend Illustrator’s functionality by writing simple scripts in the JavaScript language, with a focus on ease of use, simplicity and clarity. So if you’re interested in writing Ai scripts the easy way as they claim, you can give it a try, download and make some scripts.

Scriptographer is also a website (from Switzerland) that provides exchange scripts and ideas among users. They listed their archives in 3 main categories.. and I can say that they’re among up to date scripts available out there, from legacy and up to Ai CS6.

  • General Scripts | 43 scripts that generate or modify graphic objects
  • Interactive Tools | 41 interactive scripts – mouse controlled drawing tools
  • Raster Scripts | 11 scripts that create graphics based on the pixel data of bitmap raster objects

5. Mobile & Apps

We can see more (and hopefully better) designer’s apps available in App Store and PlayStore, oh yes we would like to see in Win8 Store as well. Anyway, what is The Best App of 2013..? Google Play Store had named 11 Best Apps of 2013, and here – Pixlr Express by Autodesk, is one of them.

 

6. Internet & Social Media Dilemma

The rise of mobile tech and devices had made social activities change the life style of many of us, whether we realize it or not. In fact, in some country, the authority had made some rules to prevent their people being ‘stuck on gadget’ 24/7. People might blames on social media attractions, but to be frank, social media is just a new kind of tool to communicate. We need to be careful on how we deal with it, not to be too dependent on it.. its not a big deal anyway.

In the middle of this year people around the globe being blast by shocking news of the information security related issue. NSA has ‘direct access’ to the servers of Google, Facebook and others. Using a program named #PRISM they spy on us, collecting our personal infos especially on our media social accounts. There came the most popular name in 2013, Edward Snowden (compared to Obama).
