And at the elementary level just simple positioning of text labels in 
graphics.  If I have three curves that I want labelled "Low gain", 
"Medium gain", "High gain" in a plot, I often use an 
Epilog->{Text,Text,Text} sequence to stick the labels anywhere on the 
plot, then drag 'em where they look best (and maybe modify the text) in 
the Illustrator version of the graphic.
