Adobe FreeHand is a computer application for creating two-dimensional vector graphics (use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and polygons to represent images, also known as geometric modeling), oriented to the professional desktop publishing market.
Freehand is a stand-alone application which when used for graphic design to go to prepress, used to be a very strong software application. Current use for eBook publishing allows the writer to change high resolution TIFF or EPS image to low resolution jpeg files when creating adobe PDF files. Freehand also had the distinction of being the first major graphic design application to offer layers and non print work areas around the artwork page. Many users are still producing artwork in version 9.
