    After spending so much time in Photoshop, it just seems like a burden for me to take time and learn how to use Illustrator. However it really is a powerful piece of software, and it was around before Photoshop was even on the market.

    Hi,

    Thanks a LOT for this list. I have used Photoshop for years, and have decided to start using Illustrator, but finding it really difficult to get the hang of at the moment.

    But these look great, and I think they will help. thanks a lot :]
