In fact, since Adobe Illustrator software took full advantage of Adobe's Display PostScript! software technology on NeXT computers, what you see on the screen was exactly what you get from NeXT laser printers: clear, crisp and with no surprises. You could even view EPS and TIFF images directly on-screen or import them into Adobe Illustrator and see them precisely as they would appear in the finished art.
For fast and accurate production, Adobe Illustrator delivered precision drawing tools for freehand sketching or automatic tracing, allowing you to rapidly turn scanned images into finished art. You could use the blending tools to create airbrush effects with just a few clicks of the mouse or manipulate and refine artwork easily, without starting over. Best of all, you could create complex artwork in just a fraction of the time it would take to do by hand.
Adobe Illustrator software for NeXT allowed editing in "preview" and "preview selection" modes for immediate access to your work. And since Adobe Illustrator used both the NeXT font and NeXT color panels, specifying type and color was never easier.
The program also supported the complete PANTONE!* MATCHING SYSTEM - the color standard of professionals. This feature was most impressive when you combined Adobe Illustrator with the highly advanced NeXTdimension system, which provided you with an electronic palette of more than 16 million colors on-screen.
With fast manipulation of text, automatic creation of graphs and complete control of even the most elaborate artwork, Adobe Illustrator for NeXT provided the most comprehensive illustration and design tool for artists and business-users available at that time.
Adobe Illustrator was the only program with the precise illustration, extensive text handling, and automatic graphing capabilities professional designers need- all in one package. Adobe Illustrator for NeXT took full advantage of the NeXTstep environment and provided additional features not available on any other platform:
- Edit in Preview mode.
- Autotrace works on shades and hues of color Template images.
- Custom grids.
- Drag & Drop TIFF and EPS files into Illustrator documents.
- Color TIFF images can be used as Templates.
- Save format is compatible with Illustrator on all other platforms.
