Vector graphics consist of points, which form lines, and lines then form shapes. The graphic elements in vector files are called objects. Each object is an entity, which has attributes such as color, shape, outline, size and position.
A bitmap is composed of individual dots of pixels (picture elements). These dots could be arranged and colored differently to form the pattern. When the bitmap is enlarged, the individual squares could be seen which make up the entire image.

Independent of the resolution, vector graphics are characterized by the fact that the image won’t be distorted when enlarged, which and are suitable for graphic design, text design and some logo design, layout design, etc. Vector graphics are drawn by Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, its common formats are ai, cdr, eps.
