Vector graphics is the use of geometrical concepts such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical expressions, to represent images in computer graphics. Vector graphics can be enlarged, reduced or changed in resolution without degrading quality. Vector graphics is based on images made up of paths. This does not affect the size of the files in a substantial way because all information resides in the structure; it describes how to draw the vector.
