Free Scripts for Adobe Illustrator

There are ten very useful and interesting scripts for Adobe Illustrator. You can download them in this set. Just click on the title of the script or picture below. Wish you great creative experiments :)



Drag and drop the script file (JSX or JS) to the script folder of your Adobe Illustrator to install the script. Location of the script folder depends on your Adobe Illustrator version and system configuration.

For Windows:
C → Program Files → Adobe → Adobe Illustrator (your version) → Presets → en_GB → Scripts

For Macintosh:
Applications → Adobe → Adobe Illustrator (your version) → Presets → en_GB → Scripts

Then run Adobe Illustrator. You can find the script in the main menu File → Scripts.

You can also run the script without installation. Go to File → Scripts → Other Script (Ctrl+F12). Then open the script file on your computer.

Let's go!

New Vector Inspector Plugin is available now

Do you remember the old Vector Inspector plugin which fixes mistakes in vector illustrations for microstocks? The plugin is very useful. But it was made for the Adobe Illustrator a long time ago. There were no any updates. Unfortunately it does not work in the new Adobe Illustrator CC. Is this the end of the Vector Inspector plugin? Can we change destiny?



And we have such opportunity! A team of young and ambitious developers has already started creating new Vector Inspector plugin for Adobe Illustrator. Here you can observe the development: Vector Inspector Pro - Ai-plugin for fast checking of the vector illustrations.



You can free download Vector Inspector Pro plugin here:
VIP developers page

Installation: drag and drop the AIP file to the plugin folder.
C > Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator > Plug-ins

This project funded like the Crowdfunding. Join if you have the opportunity. And you will get the new version first of all. $ 10-30 is enough.

Adobe Illustrator Tutorial: How to Draw Vinyl Record

In today’s tutorial you will learn how to create a retro vinyl record with the help of the conical gradient. We will use the Apply gradient along stroke function for this.

You can find all Illustrator tutorials from this blog using this link → CLICK HERE



First of all we should create two circles. Use the Ellipse Tool (L). Turn off the Fill.



Then increase the stroke width of these circles as in the picture below.



Select the inner circle. Move the Fill to the top position in the Fill panel. Then apply the Radial Gradient (Ctrl+F9) to the stroke. You need to enable the Apply gradient along stroke option.



Do the same for the second circle. Change gradient colors slightly.



Then make the central part of the vinyl. Draw another circle.



The hole on the vinyl is also a circle. And one more black circle in the background.



Now draw two circles with a white stroke - 0,25 pt Weight.



Select circles and go to the menu Object > Blend > Make. Then go Object > Blend > Blend Options and set
