Adobe Illustrator CC

Create pixel-perfect designs

Discover how to create crisp lines and artwork in your UI/UX projects as well as your web, screen, and other digital designs.

Note: You’ll need the latest version of Adobe Illustrator CC (2017) to see these enhancements.

Never wrestle with anti-aliased icons and fuzzy art again

Now create paths that automatically align to the pixel grid as you draw them. Or align art to the pixel grid in just one click. 

You can customize the pixel-snapping feature. Click the Snap to Pixel icon in the Control panel and click the pull-down menu to open the Pixel Snapping Options dialog box. For the most precise control, select all three options to snap while drawing, while moving, and while scaling.

Draw pixel-perfect artwork every time

As you draw, paths and vector shapes snap to the nearest pixel grid. Imagine the time you’ll save when you draw clean, sharp lines from the start.

Art stays pixel-aligned even when moved around

Your paths and shapes align to the pixel grid as you move them, so you don’t have to worry about changing their appearance. You can also fix anti-aliased art just by moving it.

Tip: If any anti-aliased edges remain, press A to select the Direct Selection tool and move the affected anchor point or path segment to the nearest pixel grid.

Fearlessly scale artwork

Anchor points, path segments, and shapes automatically align to the pixel grid as you scale your art.

Make any artwork pixel-perfect with just one click

For anti-aliased icons or art with fuzzy edges, simply right-click and select Make Pixel Perfect. Or click the Align Selected Art to Pixel Grid icon in the Control panel.
