Our raster to vector services makes the conversion process easy and painless. With other conversion processes it’s going to take a long time, and often with unacceptable results. Not here though, as we use state of the art conversion methods so the final output is of the highest quality.
What You Can Expect From Us
Once the raster image has been converted, the file will be 100% vector and can be scaled without distorting the outline or other elements. The final output can then be used for any number of applications such as:
The end result is there won’t be any jagged or pixelated edges to the images and it’s going to look smooth regardless how you scale it. No matter the type of raster image you have, you can be certain the results will be high grade and professional quality for the following reasons.
We have done work for designers, illustrators, sign companies and websites
Our team is highly trained in the conversion of raster to vector
Manual and auto tracing options are both available
We are trusted by print and sign companies around the world
We have years of experience using vector and raster images
We can work with large file sizes and we know how to optimize the results so the final output is just how you want it.
What is a Raster Graphic?
A raster file is an image comprised of thousands of millions of tiny squares called pixels. These pixels contain information about color and make up the image. If you are a bit confused because the term pixel is also used to refer to a computer monitor’s dimensions, don’t be because they are interchangeably used.
There are many types of raster files, but the most common is a photo, usually created in a photo editing program. Raster files come in different formats such as .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png. .tiff, .psd, and .bmp. The term bitmap is often used to refer to raster files, but actually bitmap refers to .bmp, one of the many raster file formats.
Lots of detail: raster files can store a lot of details. The word dpi is often associated with raster graphics, and it refers to the dots per inch in the image. Meaning, if an image has a 450 dpi, it means there are 450 color squares in the image, providing shade and making even small details stand out.
Accurate editing: raster images can be edited down to the last pixel. With a good photo editing program you can adjust every aspect of the image, customize it, and apply effects and so on.
Scaling blurs the image: this is the biggest drawback with raster files, because resizing will give the graphic a grainy, pixelated appearance. This is understandable because when you create a raster file, there are a set number of pixels in it. If you scale the image up, the program has to fill in the gaps by adding more colors, and due to the imprecise nature of this calculation, the image ends up looking blurry.
Large files: the amount of detail present in raster images has a price, and that is a huge file size. A good sized photo with a high dpi can be several megabytes in size, and can bring your computer to a halt.
What is a Vector Graphic?
A vector graphic relies on math to create shapes. With raster images, you paint shapes using pixels, but with vector you draw with curves, lines and points. Vector images are often used for logos, fonts and technical drawings. Whereas raster files can have 300 dpi for a 1 x 1 image, a vector graphic has just four points for every corner.
Scalable: because vector graphics use mathematical formulas, they can be scaled up or down without any loss of detail. This is possible because the graphic relies on the same math equation and makes the proper adjustment. Vector graphics have separate shapes and layers so they’re easier to edit than raster.
Smaller files: vector graphics take up less disk space than raster files since the geometric shapes are more compact compared to pixels. This means you don’t need as powerful a system to use vector graphics compared to a raster file.
Limited colors: vector graphics cannot produce the same subtle shades that raster files do. You can create color gradients, but it is impossible to replicate the color detail because you cannot work with gradients.
Few effects and filters: since vector graphics are made with lines and points, it is not possible to apply complex effects like those you see on raster graphics.
Raster and Vector Graphics Comparison
A quick look at the two:
Best for technical and scientific illustrations, drawing geometrical shapes, illustrations and drawings
Can be printed in any resolution or size
Colors are easy to add and replace
Not ideal for images that require continuous color tone or for photo editing
Ideal for editing photos and blending soft colors
Ideal for creating complex images
Suitable for editing photos
Used for posting images on the web
Detailed images produce huge files
Cannot be scaled without losing quality
There really is no competition between the two since they serve different purposes. In fact there are instances wherein you can combine the two together.
