Vector art is a type of digital illustration created using mathematical algorithms and geometric shapes, such as points, lines, and curves, to represent images. The advantage of vector art is that it can be resized without losing quality or becoming pixelated, making it ideal for use in logos, illustrations, and graphic design. Vector art files are typically saved in formats such as AI, SVG, or EPS.
To vectorize a logo means to convert a pixel-based image of a logo into a vector graphic, which is a mathematical representation of lines, shapes, and colors. Vector graphics are resolution-independent, meaning they can be resized without losing quality, and they are often used in design and printing.
There are several methods to vectorize a logo, including manual tracing, using automatic tracing tools, or by redrawing the logo from scratch in vector software such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, or CorelDraw.
If you have access to vector software, you can simply import the pixel-based logo and then trace it, or redraw it, to create a vector version.
If you don’t have access to vector software, there are online tools that can help you vectorize a logo automatically, such as Vector Magic or Adobe Illustrator online. Simply upload the pixel-based logo and the tool will trace it for you. However, be aware that the quality of the resulting vector graphic may vary and manual adjustments may be needed.
