Scriptographer.org is an awe inspiring site that has been created by design geeks for designers. Scriptographer is an open source site that provides innovative and useful scripts that are a valuable addition to Illustrator.
I myself used some of these tools in older additions of Illustrator. My favourite tools were in raster scripts. This script allowed you take raster images (even lo res) and turn them into half tone screen style images made with an vector object of your choice. Normally this kind of execution could take hours instead it takes a few seconds. You can see some of the possibilities in the images below all created with vectors so there is no restriction how these can be utilised afterwords. This is ideal if you need an image but as a vector for use as a vinyl decal for signage and such like.
We actually used this in the Sydney college with an image of the queen and we now have 8 foot image of the queens face on our back wall.
Its a great place to go just for inspiration, even if you don't end up using the scripts. They often have video demos to accompany the scripts.
Be amazed download scriptographer and experiment.
