The article is dedicated to the description of the computer images based on mathematic equations known as vector graphics. Read the designation and application of vector art.

The world of graphic design is rich. Computer technologies have brought various changes and opportunities to the sphere of graphics. Nowadays computer graphics is becoming much more accurate and clear. The most popular graphic formats are vector art and raster (or bitmap) illustrations. It will be useful both for expert designers and for general computer users to learn more about new opportunities of graphic design.Vector art is the application of geometrical figures such as lines, curves, points and others, to form illustrations in PC graphics. It is necessary to understand the designation of this instrument to ensure its efficient application. Vector images make up an image like mathematical formulae using lines, shapes and colors. 

There is a specialized vector program that is designated to apply this mathematical formula to construct screen illustration of the best quality. Vector art is widely applied by professional graphic designers and even by amateurs that need to use some images to create a certain project.Initially vector graphics was used in the air defense system of America. At present vector graphics is still applied in military and specialized systems. Amid the most popular contemporary directions of vector images application is laser light shows, when two perpendicular mirrors move in order to draw shapes on a screen. 

Vector images are widely used by such computer software as Coral Draw, Adobe Illustrator and similar software.Although vector images are famous for their known for its scalability, it does not mean that vector illustrations are much better than raster graphics. Both formats have pros and cons. As a matter of fact, they are used for different purposes. Bitmap application applies pixels, and in this way it is ideal for photograph editing. Furthermore, raster graphics provides fuller color range than vector art. At the same time vector images are widely applied for drawing images from scratch.In this way, nowadays you have great opportunities in graphic design. It is up to you to decide what program exactly is demanded for your kind of activity.
