Why Vector

Recommended Posts

Guest lovevector

VECTOR images are created by the numerical coordinates that are contained within the file. Vector images can be scaled up or down infinitely without the loss of resolution and are much smaller files compared to bitmap files. Vector images also allow you to change color and edit individual elements with ease. Vector artwork is simply comprised of lines (wireframe) that represent the objects. Vector images are usually created with drawing programs such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator or Freehand.

Vector Graphics are also ideally suited for detailed illustrative work and industrial illustrations.




It's quite often more beneficial to show a detailed vector illustration rather then trying to produce a high resolution photographic image, especially when used for demonstration purposes or technical instruction manuals.




We've re-created many products into vector images for this purpose. Quite often it works out far less expensive than hiring a professional photographer! Don't forget that you will be able to scale up your vector image to any size and the image will always remain sharp. This is something that can't be achieved with photographic images.
