Difficulty: Easy (Learn More)

Vector images or vector graphics are images that are made up of lines, points, and curves. The lines and points on a vector image are coordinates and equations based on a coordinate system, instead of individual pixels used in raster images. Unlike raster image formats such as JPEGs, PNGs, and GIFs, vector images have the advantage of being infinitely scale-able without becoming pixelated at any point. While vector images can easily be converted into raster images, it is not particularly easy to convert from raster images to vector images since once the paths have been converted into pixels, paths have to be guessed and recalculated in order to convert the images back into vector graphics.
