Raster vs. Vector Art
In this article i am going to talk about Raster vs Vector Art and at the same time the pro’s and con’s of both.
Pros of Raster Images
- Rich Detail: If you know about the term “dpi” it stands for “dots per inch”. It is basically a measurement of how much detailed color information a basic raster image contains. Example if we got 1” x 1” square image having 300 dpi—that will be 300 individual squares of color. Having more dpi inside the image more details are going to be noticeable.
Cons of Raster Images
- Blurred When Enlarged: One of the biggest downfall of having a raster image is they become pixelated when they are enlarged.
A Vector Art basically uses math in order to draw shape using points, curves and lines. When compared with a raster image of a 1” x 1” square having 300 dpi instead of 300 individuals pieces of information, a vector image is going to contain only four points, one point at each corner.
Pros of Vector Art
- Infinitely Scalable: Vector files can easily be scaled down or up as much we want without losing picture quality.
- Smaller File Size: Vector graphic images have smaller size as compared to raster images.
Cons of Vector Images
- Limited Details: Since vector images require mathematical way to remembers data, they are not good for complex images as complex images require exact coloring.
- Limited Effects: Since vector images are basically created using simple points and lines. Due to this vector images cannot handle specific styling effects, such as drop shadow or blurring etc.
