HOW TO CONVERT RASTER IMAGES INTO VECTOR ART?
Vector conversion is the process to convert raster image into vector art. A raster image is based on pixels, and the file format was .jpg, but .vector is not exact; the vector is high-resolution pictures that you can see an image in any size or format it would never be pixilated or distorted. Vector images are commonly used in industries like screen printing, marketing posters, brand logos, etc.
