Vectorized

I'll leave it to someone else to explain the differnece between vector and bitmap (raster) graphics. I use CorelTrace to trace the bitmap image and save it as a vector image. I think there are stand alone programs, probably even some shareware, out there besides CorelTrace that will do the same job. Get on over to Download.com and do a search for trace programs.

Basically, the difference between raster and vector...the best way I can explain is vector images aren't made of pixels. If you zoom in on a photograph or raster image, eventually you'll get a bunch of blurred dots that don't look like anything. In Vector, you could theoretically zoom in forever on it and the image would never look blurred, it would still be clean and crisp. Everything in vector art is either a point or a path. A point that stops a line and the path that connects them. That's the way my Graphic Design teacher explained it to me, anyway.
