Vector graphics are made up of geometrically defined basic elements – other than pixel graphics, which consist of single small points. Therefore, they can rather be understood as a collection of mathematic formulas. The single vectors contain lines, curves, circles or polygons, which result in a complex graphic. These so-called primitives only need little information. Therefore, vector graphics are well suited for printing geometric designs and letterings. Another advantage is the small memory requirement as compared to pixel graphics and that they can be scaled up and down without loss of quality.
