Transcript of Vector Graphics

By: Hannah Miller
& Audrey Gan Vector Graphics Why are vectors in vector graphics important? As previously said, the vectors allow the image to retain a detailed resolution, no matter the size of the image. What happens i an incorrect vector is used? Image distortion Through vectors are used every day in advertising and other artistic fields to create clearer, crisper images. Can you tell the differe digital/computer graphics F graphic ail nce? So, how exactly DO graphics use vectors? Like the unattractive, pixelated image seen earlier, JPEGs, GIFs, and BMP images all use a grid comprised of a certain number of pixels.
These are called "raster images”. Vector graphics use paths, which are defined by a start and end point. lines curves angles & other
points So, what's the result? The ability to make both simple AND complex images! Since vector graphics are not made up of a specific number of dots, they can be scaled to a size and not lose image quality. larger Remember that hot air balloon? The Difference: vs. These paths are the vectors which can be made up of: The path is lead through these point locations called control points. Each of these points has a definite position on the x and y axes of the work plan. Each point includes the location of the point in the work space and the direction of the vector which defines the direction of the track.
Sound familiar?
Each track can be assigned a color, shape, thickness, and fill. This is extremely important for the applications in which vector graphics are used. Vectors are used in:
billboards (advertisements)
blue prints
visual art
graphic t-shirts
& presentations Like this one right now! Seeing how vector graphics are used in all these different applications, our world is highly impacted by the use of vector graphics. Most digital graphics and illustrations would not have the resolution and clarity that is available to us today. Images on shirts and pictures in books and magazines would be pixelated. Because of vectors and their ability to graphically sustain the quality of an image, we are able to access clear, non pixelated images in today’s world. Works Cited
