What's a vector illustration? There are two very different types of graphics: vector and bitmap graphics. Bitmaps are made up a series of pixels in a grid and cannot be resized without losing quality. Vector Illustration software allows you to create drawings using lines and curves which can be easily edited by moving points, adjusting curves, and changing the colors of various objects. Vector illustrations, because they consist of points and objects rather than pixels are resolution free. Unlike bitmapped images, they will always print at the highest resolution, giving you smooth fills and crisp lines no matter what size you print it.
What software do I need to edit the illustrations? You can edit the illustrations using Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Macromedia FreeHand, Deneba Canvas or other compatible vector drawing program.
What color space do the illustrations use? The illustrations are created in RGB but the artwork can be changed to CMYK. There may be a slight color shift when RGB illustrations are changed to CMYK.
What size are the illustrations? The illustrations are resolution independent and are scalable without losing quality using a vector illustration program such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
