Vector Image Files

Vector graphics are made up of paths, rather than individual pixels. These paths can be used to represent lines and shapes within the image. Most vector image formats can also include colors, gradients, and image effects. Since vector graphics store image data as paths, they can be enlarged without losing quality, which makes them a good choice for logos and other types of drawings.

Common vector image file extensions include .EPS, .AI, and .SVG.

Other image file categories include Raster Graphic and 3D Image files.
