What is a vector image

Vector images are digital artwork in which points, lines and curves are calculated by the computer. They essentially giant math equations, and every "equationâ€Â can be assigned a colour, stroke or thickness (among other styles) to turn the shapes into art. Unlike raster images, vector images are resolution independent. When you shrink or enlarge a vector image, your shapes get larger, but you wonâ€â„¢t lose any detail or get any pixilation. Because your image will always render identically, no matter the size, there is no such thing as a lossy or lossless vector image type.

Vector images are typically used for logos, icons, typesetting and digital illustrations. Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw are the industry-standard image editors that is used to create, design and edit vector images (though it can also incorporate raster images, as well).CAD packages such AUTODESKâ€â„¢s AutoCAD also saves drawing as Vector file format

What is a raster image

Raster images are made up of a set grid of dots called pixels where each pixel is assigned a colour. Unlike a vector image, raster images are resolution dependent, meaning they exist at one size. When you transform a raster image, you stretch the pixels themselves, which can result in a "pixelatedâ€Â or blurry image. When you enlarge an image, your software is essentially guessing at what image data is missing based on the surrounding pixels. More often than not, the results arenâ€â„¢t great.
