Vector vs. Bitmap


-Made of points, lines, curves and can form and create complex objects.
-Can be filled with color, gradient, and patterns.
-Can be freely manipulated without losing definition of the vector graphic.
-Ideal for logo/graphic that needs to be resized often for different jobs without losing quality.

-Does not define quality as high as photography or bitmap graphics.


-Most common graphic format used on the computer and internet.
-Composed of pixels which help show shading.

-When the size of the bitmap graphic is changed, especially enlarged, the image becomes blurry because it needs more pixels to fill the space. When a bitmap graphic is reduced in size, pixels are taken out of the picture to comprehend the new size.
