DO THIS ONE SIMPLE TEST

Enlarge your image to 800%.

If your image looks the same when enlarged to 800% as it does at 100%, it is a vector image.

If the edges of your image are rough and blurry, the image is not a vector image.

Raster vs. Vector Sample Photos

MORE INFO ABOUT IMAGES

-- There are two main file types, raster and vector.

-- Vector graphics (the type of file you need) are created with vector software and are common for images that will be applied onto a physical product, such as printing your image on the Motorcycle Coaster®. Vector images have file extensions such as pdf, cdr, and xps.

-- Raster images are created with pixel-based programs or captured with a camera or scanner. They are more common, in general, and are widely used on the web. Raster images have file extensions such as jpg, gif, bmp and png.

-- Unlike JPG or PNG images (which are made up of hundreds or thousands of pixels), vector images are made up of hundreds of lines joined together.

-- When you zoom into a JPG or PNG image, you see a lot of little, blurry squares. Also, the outline of the image is not sharp. That does not happen with a vector image.

-- When you zoom in to a vector image, the lines “stay together,” and the image will always look the same whether at 100%, or reduced or enlarged to a different size.

-- Vector images can be scaled and printed at any size without losing quality.

Raster vs. Vector Sample Photos
DO THIS ONE SIMPLE TEST

Print your image on white paper.

What you see on the paper is what you can expect to see when the image is printed on a Motorcycle Coaster®.

If you think your image looks terrible on paper, you will think the same when it is printed on a Motorcycle Coaster®.  If you think your image looks "just OK" on paper, you will think the same when it is printed on a Motorcycle Coaster®.  
 

Jump to DPI Resolution Sample Photos

MORE INFO ABOUT IMAGES

-- DPI stands for “dots per inch” and is a property used to prepare digital images for print.

-- The higher the DPI, the higher the resolution of the photo.

-- 300 dpi is considered the minimum needed for a photo to maintain its sharpness and detail when it is printed on to a flat surface, such as the Motorcycle Coaster®. Some items, like barcodes, are best printed at resolutions as high as 600 dpi!
