What is Raster to Vector Conversion?
Raster to vector conversion involves, in essence, recreating, or tracing, a raster image in a vector graphics program such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. Raster images include bitmap (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), tagged image file (.tif), and others. While raster images are comprised of a series of pixels, vector images are created using a series of points, lines and curves, all of which are based on mathematical equations. The purpose of this process is to create an image that is infinitely scalable. With raster images, when you enlarge, or zoom in on the image, it becomes very pixelated, which can ruin the image. Once you convert this raster image to a vector image, the integrity and smoothness are maintained at any level of zoom. This is beneficial for graphic design, web design, and large printing jobs.
