Adobe Photoshop CS3: Creating Images with Vector Drawing Techniques
Photoshop allows you to work with either bitmap (raster) images (Photoshop's default graphic type) or vector graphics.
Bitmap images are based on a grid of colors known as pixels, whereas vector graphics consist of lines and curves defined by mathematical objects called vectors. Unlike bitmap images, vector images retain their crisp edges at any enlargement. Learn how to use Photoshop's vector drawing tools to get the images you want!
