Vector and Rasterize - Can someone pls. explain? (Illus. v. 10) - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, I'm a complete newbie, given the software and asked to create text images. I've read the manual that comes with Illustrator v.10 but still have no idea what vector and rasterize mean. Can someone please explain these in layman's terms for me? Maybe that will help me understand better how to sharpen my text images. Thank you SO much for any help you can provide. Regards, Shirley...

    Hi,
    I'm a complete newbie, given the software and asked to create text images.

    I've read the manual that comes with Illustrator v.10 but still have no idea what vector and rasterize mean.

    Can someone please explain these in layman's terms for me? Maybe that will help me understand better how to sharpen my text images.

    Thank you SO much for any help you can provide.

    Red vector circle:

    circle(x=10,y=10,radius=10,color=red)

    Red raster circle:

    ··RRRRR··
    ·R·····R·
    R·······R
    R·······R
    ·R·····R·
    ··RRRRR··

    You can resize the vector circle changing the numeric parameters. However,
    you can't resize the raster circle easily, you have to do some maths and
    some figuring out to create a new bigger matrix. I hope this helps.

    Shirley,

    Check Chapter 10, page 257, "Changing vector graphics into bitmap images". In simplist terms, Victor is like connecting dots (points) with a line (path) like you would algrbraically on an XY graph. Raster is making an image by applying one color to one square at a time the the combination of squares creates a "photo" image.

    Bob,

    Thanks for taking the time to reply in very simple terms. The manual was like reading Latin. I was lost. It's hard for me to learn new software reading about it. I wish I could attend a class.

    Your help was MOST appreciated!

    Regards,

    Shirley,

    You'd shorten the learning curve considerably in graphics by taking even just the basic classes in PhotoShop and Illustrator. Check into your local community college or night school options. You may well find one there.
