A vector file is a drawing or graphic created using vector illustration software programs, such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape or Corel Draw. It’s made up of paths, along with other points, lines, shapes and curves that are rooted in mathematical formulas.
The biggest advantage of vector art is that it’s resolution-independent, allowing for easy scalability without affecting the picture quality. This means that the same art file can be used to replicate your design on a business card, billboard, apparel or books with no loss of detail, resolution or sharpness. Your logo or artwork will be displayed at its best quality.
Also, since mathematical descriptions and not individual pixels identify vector images, they take up less space as compared to the raster images. Due to their small sizes, transferring them from one computer to another or over the internet is quite easy. Common vector file formats include .ai, .eps, .fh, or .cdr.
Additionally, the images allow for easy manipulation meaning they have more flexibility with making changes/editing. Keeping a collection of vector images can save you a significant amount of time because of the ability to resize on the go.
When it comes to creating files, the type of computer graphic format you use is quite crucial. You want to have an image that can be used in a variety of sizes without having to re-create it all over again.
