Vectorize Your Raster Images into Scalable Vector Graphics

Posted by SEOTech on May 20th, 2021

Pixel Conversion color details into clear geometric objects are how you vectorize image. Searching image segmentation areas of the same or identical illumination or color, which are then represented as graphic elements like lines, circles, and curves is the most general version.

Introduction to Vector

Vector images are geometric formulas focused on paths that enable limitless image compression without sacrificing image quality, or to put it another way, the image remains clear and free of pixelation and hard lines.

How Do Vector Images Vary from Raster or Bitmap Images?

Raster or Bitmap images, on the other hand, are made up of pixels and are resolution-dependent which means that widening the image would expand the pixel size, resulting in a blurry or smudgy image with specular highlights and borders.

Reasons to Choose Raster or Bitmap Images

There are valid factors in making these two types of image files since certain images aren't vectorizable because of their nature. Images, for instance, do not perform well as vectors. The various shades, gradients, colors, and unusual structures render saving as a vector complex and impossible.

Vector images are suitable for images or designs that have straight lines, curves, and solid-colored forms. Logos, graphic artwork, sketches, and diagrams are popular uses.

Image to Vector Conversion

The process of converting bitmap or raster graphics to vector art is known as vectorizing, and it can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Gravit Designer, Vector Magic, and are examples of software that can transform bitmap images into vector images manually.

Import your image into Gravit Designer and choose to Modify > Path > Vectorize Image from the App list to convert to vector naturally.

Another way of Vector Conversions is to use a technique known as tracing. You can import the image into a vector design program such as Gravit Designer or Adobe Illustrator and use directions to trace the rows and features you want to replicate, similar to how you would outline a picture using tracing paper. With this, raster images such as JPEGs, GIFs, and PNGs can be converted to scalable vector graphics (EPS, SVG, AI, and PDF). You can also vectorize your black and white images into flexible and transparent art using free tracing.
