Take control and extend Illustrator’s power
The Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 SDK and scripting interface let you extend and enhance Illustrator to give users power and control over their vector image projects: create custom filters and effects, manage and manipulate image projects, organize layers, optimize point data, and automate tasks. Import and export custom file formats and process images in bulk. Build custom workflows that cross application boundaries.
You can also sell and distribute your extensions to the entire Creative Cloud install base using Adobe Exchange, which is integrated with Illustrator.
The guides, documentation, and sample code in the Adobe Illustrator SDK lead you through the plug-in development process and show you how to build scripts and actions that leverage every aspect of Illustrator’s power. Open the heart of Illustrator up to your users’ control and let your imagination do the rest.
