FAQ Raster to Vector Conversion Services

Vector Conversion is the art of converting raster images to line art images format. Bitmap images are made up of pixels, and cannot be scaled up effectively. VECTOR images are created by the numerical coordinates that are contained within the file. Vector images can be scaled up or down infinitely without the loss of resolution and are much smaller files compared to bitmap files. Vector images also allow you to change color and edit individual elements with ease. Vector artwork is simply comprised of lines (wireframe) that represent the objects. Vector images are usually created with the drawing program such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator or Freehand.

Anybody who has a Logo will need the logo vectorised. More often than not, a piece of letterhead or a business card is offered as “art” for a logo. Rarely is it a digital file. If it is a digital file, it is usually a raster image (.tiff, .jpeg, .bmp, etc . . .) The best choice for logos and other line art is an EPS file (Encapsulated Post Script). EPS files are typically generated from vector based programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, or CorelDraw. EPS files are fully scaleable and are not susceptible to distortion.

However, if the font is not available, then our artists draw the font manually which will in turn increase the input time and costing. Alternatively you can indicate if we can use the nearest available font which will in turn reduce the costing.
