When to use Photoshop versus Illustrator?

Photoshop is raster-based and uses pixels, while Illustrator works off vectors. These are points used to create perfectly smooth lines. Vectors are scalable images that can be sized as small or as large as you need them to be, while keeping the same clarity and resolution. This is not the case with Photoshop.

Photoshop is the best program when creating interface designs, web pages, banner ads, video graphics, and of course the editing and creating images for print. Illustrator is perfect for creating and editing graphics, logos and other design elements.

What about InDesign?

InDesign is ideal for creating multi-page documents. With InDesign you can setup master pages, a necessary tool when you’re building documents that use templates. InDesign also has a feature to automate page numbers.
