Vector graphics vs. Pixels

vector vs. pixelsPixel images contain a fixed number of pixels. Scaling up a pixel image can cause jagged edges, because pixels are enlarged to fit the new size, or blurry details, because new pixels are added to fit the larger image.

When creating logos, for example, designers should use vector programs. Vector graphics can be scaled up to any size without any loss of image quality.
