There are two types of digital graphics files – vector and raster. Vector images are made of hundreds of thousands of tiny lines and curves (or paths) to create an image. Raster images are composed of pixels. But how do you know what format is best for your next project?
Vector images, which are made of thin lines and curves known as paths, are rooted in mathematical theory.
Raster images are often called bitmap images because they are made of millions of tiny squares, called pixels.
