Raster To Vector an image can be either be in raster or vector formats. Although these two formats are not commonly known as such, the effects of both are well known everyone. Images in the raster formats are usually file types represented as jpg, png formats and vector formats are always in .ai file type.
Unlike traditional image raster files, which are defined by a series of pixels, vector files store visual information as a series of mathematical instructions on x- and y-axes positions. Consequently, vector images can be reproduced at whatever size you wish without any deterioration in quality. In addition, because the files are smaller in size, they are ideal for use on websites.
Raster images can be stored in many different formats, but their most important attribute is their resolution, or, to put it another way, their level of detail – measured in dots per inch (dpi). The higher the resolution, the greater number of pixels and so the better the quality. This is important when it comes to enlarging something like a logo or graphic, as you will find that unless you have a very high resolution, the quality of the image will significantly deteriorate as you increase the size – resulting in an unprofessional pixellation of the image. When you have an image in vector graphic either in eps, ai or pdf format, you have the ability to use it as a vector graphic in print or online. Or if you need to use the image in a raster format such as jpg, you still have the ability to save the image at whatever size and resolution (dpi) you want. Either way you get an image with high resolution and at a best possible quality.
In the simplest terms, raster photos are those which break up when zoomed into and vector photos are those that do not break when zoomed into. This is an extremely important image editing service necessary for uses in printing of posters, banners, billboards, and other advertisements requiring a large graphical display.
The above logo is in raster format. A raster when zoomed in breaks up since raster is composed of dots. Thus if we have raster logo and wanted to make a huge banner of the logo, it would not be possible unless the logo is converted from raster to vector format.Below is the same raster image when zoomed in.
As can be seen in Figure2, upon zooming in the photo breaks up into tiny dots. This Image cannot be used for making large posters or banners. Such a poster will be of very poor quality and highly unprofessional.
Vector images are in .ai file type which requires Adobe Illustrator or Windows Explorer to view. Figure 3 shows the raster to vector conversion of the logo in Figure 1 zoomed in. Unlike the raster image in Figure 2, the zoomed vector image in Figure 3 looks clear without any visible breaks in picture quality.
As can be seen in Figure 2, upon zooming in the photo breaks up into tiny dots. This Image cannot be used for making large posters or banners. Such a poster will be of very poor quality and highly unprofessional.
