Frequently Asked Question

What is the difference between a raster and vector graphic?

Raster graphics (also called bitmaps) are made up of rectangular pixels. Each of them contains one color. They are arranged in a grid to form the final image. GIF, JPEG (JPG), PNG, and TIFF (TIF) are some common raster graphic formats. Vector graphics are composed of paths to form different shapes like polygons which eventually form the image. Those paths are connected with dots, only visible while editing .Widely used vector graphic formats are SVG, EPS, PDF, and AI. Created for different purposes, each of them has various specifications and usages. Vector graphics are commonly used for logos, illustrations, technical drawings and for use with processes that require vector art such as specialty signs and printing, engraving and etching.
