AI (Adobe Illustrator) format

AI, Adobe Illustrator Artwork, represents single-page vector-based drawings in either the EPS or PDF formats.

The structure of an AI file depends on its version.

Aspose.PSD supports following AI versions at the moment (Full support of AI is in the product roadmap):

  • AI version 3
  • AI version 8

You can export an AI file of the supported version to any supported by Aspose.PSD format. For example, you can export AI file programmatically to Psd, Png, Jpeg, Gif, Bmp, Tiff file formats

Below provided sample code demonstrates how to export the AI file to PSD with File Format Manipulation API
