What is the difference between Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator? When would I utilize Illustrator over the others?
Illustrator's primary use is to creator vector designs that are scalable. This means you can use Illustrator to reproduce designs as small as a business card, or something as large as a billboard, without any loss of quality. The primary use of Photoshop is to edit photos and InDesign is best for creating printed works like books or manuals. If you or your future client needs a logo, digital drawing, or any other design that requires various sizes, Illustrator is the best tool.
