The genie's out of the bottle – it seems that AI is here to stay. With Illustrator's new generative features (see our Illustrator 24 review), it's a good time to try out AI tech in your workflow, particularly for idea generation or mockups. Jump from imagination to screen to print with our tutorials that explain each tool below.

Text-to-Vector Graphic enables you to generate vector graphics from text prompts, Recolor uses AI to shift your colour scheme in an instant, Mockup puts your design in situ on a 3D product and Retype allows you to select a font and find the closest matches for your own designs.
