In today’s video I’ll be demonstrating how you can both create and open Adobe Illustrator (.AI) files using Inkscape.

The song used at the end of the video is Gullible by Jake Aldridge. Jake was kind enough to let me use some of his stock photos for past tutorials so I wanted to return the favor and promote his work. Check out his channel here:

If anyone else is having trouble with the file extension not showing up, try the instructions listed here https://www.howtohaven.com/system/show-file-extensions-in-windows-explorer.shtml. This worked for me.
I just purchased a design bundle of .AI files, but I am not able to open any in Inkscape after changing the extension to .pdf. How can I tell if I have an older AI file that needs Ghostscript installed? Should I just go ahead and install Ghostscript since it is not working otherwise?
I'm noticing that my files have saved as a PDF, but when I open them up in Inkscape, they show as a blank file, and the file name in Inkscape says, "FILE_NAME-pdf.psd". It is showing as psd in Inkscape.
Changing that extension does not seem to work for me.
Hey this is a very useful video! Thank you for sharing those tips. I have a question. If I trace an image utilizing the trace bitmap then save it as .pdf then rename it as .ai, as you have described, will the illustrator be able to open it? Thanks 😎.
downloaded .ai file from adob stock photos and I can't get this to work for the life of me
Great tips. I'm new to Inkscape, so I was wondering how to do this!
(BTW…. Nice desktop background! Always fun to meet a "Neighbor"! )
it works if I dont have illustrator installed in my pc?
Didn't work for me. Tried changing the extension as well as importing. Didn't work. Anyone else having this issue?
Is it still working?
Just tried to upload a .ai file using this technique and I had an error message.
when importing an ai file (to convert to svg) I get a dialog with all these different options that i dont understand what they are. Some are selected my default, some not. Any idea what to check or uncheck there in order to correctly import the ai file, so I that there won't be a problem with the exported svg file later? Or doesn't it matter??
Wow! It really works! Thanks!
Thanks a lot for this lesson
Good job bro…
Has this solution stopped working? I follow the simple instructions but I get the Inkscape error that says… "Failed to load the requested file C:…" This is for an adobe stock .ai file. Not sure if there is a difference between a stock photo and other ai files.
Proprietary formats just need to die!!!
Thank you! My clients always ask for AI files too. Sometimes they don't grasp that AI is essentially the same as SVG. But now I just send both without needing to explain any additional stuff 😀
That was ultimately useful. Thank you.
I don't have illustrator installed in my laptop. Then how can I convert a pdf file to ai file?
Nick thank you so much. I have learned so many things from you. Because of you I am working as a logo designer on fiverr.
