What is a vector graphic?

Vectors are digital illustrations made of points, lines and curves rather than pixels. A vector image allows to be resized infinitely without any loss of resolution quality. Looking at the edges of a vector image you may easily identify it, they will always appear smooth no matter how stretched the image is.

What other image types are out there?

There are also raster images, made out of points. But as these images are like grids of dots with assigned colours, their quality depends on their resolution. Blowing up a raster image will result in jeopardizing its quality.

Why does GraphicMama uses vector images?

The vector format fits multiple purposes. You may use a vector image in web design, graphic design or animations. Besides, vector files are very light in size and could be easily downloaded online.
