What is an AI file?

AI stands for Adobe Illustrator Artwork. It’s a graphics file format developed by Adobe systems for containing vector-based drawings. AI files are ideal for Logo and Print media because they retain optimum quality even if they are on their highest zoom level. Unlike EPS, AI graphics have restricted and compact syntax which add more flexibility for the users. Although they’re native to Adobe Illustrator, AI files run great on CorelDRAW.
