The .AI file format is an abbreviation for the Adobe Illustrator. Files that come up with the .AI extension is basically the drawing files that are created using the Adobe Illustrator application. The files that are created using this program are composed of the paths that are linked by points and then are saved in the vector format. The technology that is used to create this format enable users to easily resize the images without affecting the quality of the image.
Some 3rd party applications also enable the users to rastersize the images that have been created using the Adobe Illustrator, which allows them to easily convert the files into the bitmap file format.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .AI file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .AI file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .AI file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
