This set of Adobe Illustrator vectors is composed of various shapes of snowflakes. Some are perfectly symmetrical, some are more roughly hand “drawn” (much like those unique real flakes!).
You can download these in various formats:
- AI 8+ (which includes both AI and EPS files – made for Illustrator 8 and above)
- AI CS (which includes both AI and EPS files – made for Illustrator CS and above)
- SVG vector files
Programs: Illustrator 8+, any vector program
Size: 744KB (AI 8+), 1.49MB (AI CS+), 120KB (SVG)
Photoshop and Illustrator Tip:
Photoshop can open up EPS and AI files, too, but it will treat them like regular images.
However, if you own both Illustrator and Photoshop, you can transfer vector shapes back and forth between Illustrator and Photoshop in several ways.
Select the path(s) that you want to move and CTRL-C (CMD-C for Mac) to copy. Move over to the other program and CTRL-V (CMD-V for Mac) to paste.
If you’re copying a path from Photoshop to Illustrator, it will ask you if you want to copy it as a Compound Shape (which is fully editable) or a Compound Path (which is faster).
If you’re copying a vector path or paths from Illustrator to Photoshop, it will ask you if you want to copy them as a Smart Object (which Photoshop re-renders every time you resize it to prevent loss of quality), Pixels (just pixels), a Path (a Photoshop path), or a Shape Layer (a Photoshop shape, which defaults to being filled in with your currently selected foreground layer).
