Instantly Scalable Graphics
Digital images come in two formats: raster and vector. Raster images are a set number of pixels arranged on a grid, set to a specific resolution. Increasing the image size increases the size of the individual pixels and this causes pixelation (blurry images).
Vector images, the type that can be created using Adobe Illustrator, use pathways and objects that are mathematically defined as you size the image up and down. This means that your graphics created in Adobe Illustrator can be set to any size necessary – without losing image quality at all!
