    vector graphics can be lossless scaled to any size and are prefered for printing - i.e. *.eps, *.ai
    bitmap is pixelbased image with fixed size and resolution i.e. a jpg, png, tiff etc.

    Bitmap (or raster) images are stored as a series of tiny dots called pixels. Each pixel is actually a very small square that is assigned a color, and then arranged in a pattern to form the image. When you zoom in on a bitmap image you can see the individual pixels that make up that image. Bitmap graphics can be edited by erasing or changing the color of individual pixels using a program such as Adobe Photoshop.

    Bitmap graphics
    1. Pixels of different colours
    2. Individual pixels
    3. Large, as the computer stores details of every pixel
    4. They lose quality
    Vector graphics
    1. Objects
    2. Individual objects
    3. Small, as the computer stores details of objects, which do not require much memory
    4. They do not lose quality

    Vector images have some important advantages over bitmap images. Vector images tend to be smaller than bitmap images.

    A vector image uses geometrical formulas to represent images. The other way of representing graphical images is through bit-maps in which the image is made up of a pattern of dots. Programs that allow you to create and manipulate vector graphics are called draw programs and programs that manipulate bit-map images are called paint programs.

    Bitmap (or raster) pictures become a number of small dots called pixels where as a vector picture just has to store the mathematical treatments that make up the picture, which take up less space.

    bitmap and vectors are two different ways to draw up computer graphics. bitmap imagesa are also known as raster images. The basic difference between bitmap and vector is that a bitmap is made up of pixels, whereas vector images is made up of paths .
