    Friends, today I came across the term vector images on the Internet, which I did not understand at all. How are they different from regular images, and are they different at all?


    Vector images are a special type of graphic files that differ from ordinary (rendering) in the way graphics are stored and displayed. Vector images store information in the form of mathematical objects such as lines, curves, points, and shapes that describe the image. Bitmap images, on the other hand, store information in the form of pixels. Therefore, if you are still interested in this topic, I advise you to familiarize yourself with the envelope vector images on the Depositphotos website.


    I know that vector images have the unique capability of being infinitely scalable without any loss of quality, thanks to their foundation in mathematical objects. This means you can resize them to any extent without any degradation in clarity or sharpness. On the other hand, when you scale up raster images, they tend to lose quality, resulting in a pixelated or blurry appearance due to their pixel-based nature.
