  20. 20. Raster and Vector Images• Raster • Vector • Created by a mathematical formula which• Are measured in dpi (dots per inch) forms smooth lines, curves and geometric objects• Resolution dependant: when scaled, the pixels get larger and the • Resolution independent – show examples image will become less clear with jagged edges • Scaled up or down without image deteriorating, they remain sharp and clear• Edited using image editing • Make excellent line drawings, DDS, logos, software, Photoshop. type, t-shirt images for sportswear, etc. • Much smaller file size than bitmap.• Best results – scan and work at the correct resolution and size from the • Specs and flats ideal to send via e-mail beginning • Once downloaded can be scaled to required size
  21. 21. The following example shows the differencebetween a raster image and a vector image.• Raster • Vector Image
  22. 22. Selection• Raster selection • Vector Selection• Complex, computer doesn’t know that all the pixels are part of the same object.• Just coloured dots according to the computer • Simple, a matter of clicking on the shape to select individual parts • Easier to edit
  23. 23. Differences in Resolution• Raster • Vector
  24. 24. Image Modes:RGB(Red,Green,Blue)The primary image mode forgraphics is RGB You should be awareof the other modes though.Is faster to work with than CMYK, asRGB creates a smaller file sizemaking it perfect for web.The human eye perceives colour asRGB; scanners and digital camerascapture colour information in RGB;computer monitors display colour asRGB.
  25. 25. CMYK(Cyan,Magenta,Yellow,Black)Colour printers generally use amixture of different coloured inks tocreate the range of colours needed.RGB images must be converted toCMYK for commercial printingWhen an image is converted toCMYK some of the brilliance of theRGB gamut (range) of colours will belost, so the image will have a dullerappearance
  26. 26. ResolutionBefore scanning an image or taking a photo to use in Illustrator the requiredresolution and image mode (RGB, CMYK, Grayscale) should be determined.Choose:300dpi for commercial printing ofbooks, glossy magazines and brochures.150-200dpi for laser and inkjet printers(home/office printers) make a test print to clarifythe best resolution for your printer72-96dpi for e-mail attachments, the web, PowerPoint and multimedia
  27. 27. Major changes to resolution after you have startedmay result in loss of detail and colour The larger the dpi the better the quality of the shot
