Vector vs Raster Explained – What is DIFFERENCE?

Today’s video is regarding raster graphics and vector graphics and raster graphics are two basic types of a digital image we see on a daily basis. Not Clear Enough? let us look closer. look at these two images the one on the left is a vector image and on the right is a raster image didn’t see the difference. let’s zoom in and have a closer look. The vector image looks clear and distorted as it is made up of points, lines, curves, and basic shapes these images are calculated for every level of scaling so these images stay the same regardless of size.while the raster image looks grainy and distorted because it is made up of small units called as pixels. Vector images are less detailed as they are generally basic shapes hence their size is relatively less as they just contain the mathematical instructions. In raster, the number of pixels results in more number of details adding up to the overall file size. Vector images are used for logo designing & printing purpose because large scaling is needed for printing. whereas raster images are used for high detailed photos and digital paintings. finally, these are some common file types used for raster and vector images.file types such as ai, pdf, eps are all vector extensions whereas jpeg, png, and tiff are all rester extensions.
