I am currently developing scrumseeker.com, a website to promote my Agile Transformation Consulting and Training company.
I subscribed to Adobe Stock because I had used the service in a previous assignment and thought it a good way to gather the visual elements required for my new site.
Unfortunately I discovered that some of the images in AI/EPS can't be converted to PDF by simply changing the file extension as I have done in the past with other .ai files. This has put me in a position where the value of Adobe Stock as a service to my business is not as certain as I had thought.
My question is, do any of you on the Forum know of a way to convert .ai files to .jpg or .png without needing to purchace Adobe Illustrator, (an option that is not viable for me at the moment as I am only just in the pre-launch phase of my new business)?
Thank you in advance for any helpful suggestions.
If you would like to continue using Stock (which I hope you do) there are other programs out there that will open .ai files and some are free.
Having said that, if it is something you intend to do regularly then the investment into Illustrator would be well worth it.
