Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this vector art?
Vector graphics are made of lines, points and curves, often called shapes. They are defined by mathematical objects called vectors. They are usually created in a drawing program such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. Since they're made up of lines and shapes defined by math, they can be scaled down or up without losing edge definition or quality. The computer simply recalculates the math and redraws the image to whatever size you choose.
A raster art file is a bitmap image. It's usually created in an image editing or painting program such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel PHOTO-PAINT or Corel Painter. These images are made up of pixels. A photo taken on your digital camera is a raster image.
Unlike vector files, raster artwork is resolution dependent, meaning that if you enlarge an image, it loses detail. The original size of an image is made up of a fixed number of pixels each assigned a color value and location. If you see jagged edges on a printed image, it means that the image doesn't have enough resolution.
