Well an immensely powerful program in its own right, Photoshop is a necessary appendage to Illustrator. There is all the usual stuff where Illustrator imports Photoshop images, complete with transparency. And Photoshop can rasterize Illustrator artwork, thereby ensuring that you don't lose any of your gradients, transparency settings, or dynamic effects. But it gets even better. Photoshop can take an amazing but somewhat synthetic illustration, and turn it into a photorealistic piece of art.
For example, in this chapter, we'll use Illustrator to turn this collection of basic path outlines into this highly reflective superhero shield. And then we'll bring those same shapes into Photoshop and turn them into this version of the art that's so real looking, you might be able to pass it off as an actual photograph. But don't, be honest; humbly admit that you created this awesome piece of artwork entirely from scratch because that's exactly what you are about to do.
