If a client provides you with a digital photo of the place where a proposed stained glass window is to go, a design can be composed in Adobe Illustrator. Afterwards, The design can be imported into Photoshop. Color and perspective adjusted, the design can be pasted into the photo giving the client a very good idea of how the piece will look upon completion.
