Raster to Vector Services
Laypeople do not think too deeply about image formatting. They might be familiar with different types of images, such as JPG or GIF, because they each serve a special purpose in terms of presentation and quality. But what most people don’t think about is the difference between raster and vector images. In fact, they likely don’t even know what raster and vector images are.
The big difference between raster and vector images have to do with how they’re formed. Raster images are comprised of several tiny pixels which all come together to form a complete image. These pixels are basically little dots that you cannot see unless you zoom in closer to the image. Raster images are useful for when you want very detailed pictures, such as photographs of real people and places. On the downside, the resolution of raster images is not so great. That is why they become blurry and degraded if you try to stretch them out and increase their dimensions.
Vector images are different because they do not use pixels. Instead, vector images depend on curves and lines to connect various 2D points of an image together. Once this happens, the connected points create different shapes and polygons which come together to form the complete image. You will notice the shapes and smoothness of vector images very easily whenever you look at them. The best part is that vector images will never get blurry if you stretch them out. In fact, you could stretch a vector image to fit a giant storefront banner and it will maintain the exact same quality.
Okay, so why doesn’t everyone use vector instead of raster? Well, the main reason has to do with the detail of the image. For instance, if you take a picture of a person’s face with a camera, it will create a raster image which shows every little freckle, zit, and color on the skin. Detailed images like these can only be made when you have pixels to fill in the details. You cannot produce the same kind of detailed image in vector format. The best you could do is capture an outline of the person’s face, nose and mouth, but without showing the specific details and features of their skin texture.
Why Use a Professional Raster to Vector Conversion Service?
Vector images are commonly used for things like logos, advertisement graphics, trademarks, and polygonal images. Basically, any simple image like these that you want to print on a larger scale should be converted into vector. This is the only way it will come out looking colorful and attractive. Otherwise, if you try to print a raster image on a larger scale than its original dimensions, it will become a big blurred mess that will be unattractive.
Do not try to convert a raster image to a vector image on your own because you will most certainly fail miserably. This task is not as simple as going to some free conversion website online and getting your raster image converted to vector within 1 minute. If you do this, then you can be sure that the outcome will look terrible. There are many small modifications and techniques which need to be made to a raster image for it to be converted properly. An automated conversion system will never do as good a job as a professional photo editor who will do the conversion manually.
Clipping Path Space has an elite team of photo editors who specialize in raster to vector image conversions. They will manually trace your raster image with lines and points to create a unique vector image that is 100% clear. We only hire the best raster to vector image converters because we know how important this service is to our clients. Businesspeople are especially grateful for this type of service.
For the best results, it is better that you provide simple raster images of one person or object. But if you don’t have these kinds of photos available, do not worry about it. We can go the extra mile and remove the background imagery from your object if need be. Once we single out the object, we can then work on converting it to vector.
Clipping Path Surface offers three different categories for its raster to vector services. You can learn more about each category below. They are arranged from simplest to the most complicated.
Raster to Vector – The raster to vector category is the basic conversion service for people who already have a suitable raster image available. In other words, if you already have a logo or drawing that is scanned or in raster format, we can easily take the image and convert it to vector with this service. The price of the conversion is only $2.35 per image.
Vector Drawing – Vector drawing services are available for people who either have no image to provide or a low-quality raster image that needs to be redrawn. Our team of vector professionals will go ahead and draw out all the lines and polygons of the image that you had in mind. Once the drawing is completed, it will be saved as a vector image file and delivered to you. The price of a vector drawing service is $6.35.
Logo Design – Do you need your logo redesigned as a vector image? We have a team of expert vector logo designers that can either create an entirely new vector logo for you or recreate your raster logo and turn it into a vector logo. This means our experts will actually be redrawing your logo with lines and shapes to make it vector friendly. The cost of this service is $15.00 per logo.
