Step by Step: How to Use Vector Packs

Step by Step - using Go Media's Vector Packs

We get quite a few people calling every day with trouble opening or using our Vector Packs. I decided to write a tutorial specifically to help out newbies who aren’t exactly sure what they’ve just purchased. It’s amazing to know that people who aren’t designers or even own a piece of design software are buying our vector packs. I never would have expected that. This tutorial is essentially a beginner’s guide to our Vector Packs brought to you by your friends at Go Media, the finest website development company in Cleveland.

“Vector graphics (also called geometric modeling or object-oriented graphics) is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and polygons, which are all based upon mathematical equations to represent images in computer graphics. It is used in contrast to the term raster graphics, which is the representation of images as a collection of pixels, and used as the sole graphic type for actual photographic images.”

Basically, a vector image can be scaled infinitely to any size. It can be enlarged to put on a billboard or the side of a building. It can be used on apparel and even on the web. Raster images (such as jpg, gif, tif, etc) cannot be enlarged without losing quality. So when buying design elements, you want the most versatile elements that can suit any application. Vector graphics are the way to go because they can customized however you like. That’s why we call them Vector Packs!

What’s the purpose of the Vector Packs?
The main purpose of the vector packs is to have a library or archive of commonly used vector elements that you can quickly access and implement into your designs. These are especially helpful if you are on a tight deadline and need to quickly add some flair or artistic elements. Some people buy them and simply use ONLY elements from different packs to create artwork that they never would have imagined they could create beforehand.
