Vector Graphics

Vector graphics are created on the computer rather than sampled like bitmapped graphics and can be resized and stretched. Vector graphics look better on devices with a high resolution, where as bitmapped graphics look the same regardless. Vector graphics take up less memory space than bitmapped graphics however, only the individual shapes can be edited unlike bitmapped graphics where each individual pixel can be edited. Vector graphics store different properties about the image such as shape, fill colour, position, line width and line colour. Draw programs are used to create vector graphics such as inkscape and serif.
