Adobe released a free public beta of Photoshop CS6 last week, and the app has already been downloaded over 500,000 times. The next app up to bat from the new creative suite is the all new Illustrator. Adobe demos the design tool in the 3-minute sneak peak video above. Illustrator’s new Pattern Creation tool is the main focus. You’ll also notice that, like the new Photoshop, Illustrator sports a darker interface.
Adobe has yet to announce a free beta for the new Illustrator and a release date for CS6.
