Defined as: “the use of geometric primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shape(s) or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical expressions, to represent images in computer graphics“, vector graphics are particularly useful for using images on the internet (i.g. blog posts, articles, etc.).

But you may be wondering what the advantages are of using these vector illustrations? The answer is simply that they require less space and are far more flexible than other image types (such as bitmap). The latter is especially important because as they are re-sized, vector images “remain smooth because your computer merely re-computes the coordinates of the points and adjusts the vector equation constants“.
