vector vs image

The main difference between vector and raster images (eg photographs) is that raster images are composed of pixels while vector images are composed of lines (calculated using digital algorithms).

Vector images do not compromise image quality, nor do they lose information when scaled up or down.

It is also the images in this format (vector) that allow us to reproduce graphics in certain drawing programs or printing and recording systems.
