graphics (sometimes called vector shapes or vector
objects) are made up of lines and curves defined
by mathematical objects called vectors, which describe an
image according to its geometric characteristics.
You can freely move or modify vector graphics without losing
detail or clarity, because they are resolution-independent—they
maintain crisp edges when resized, printed to a PostScript printer,
saved in a PDF file, or imported into a vector-based graphics application.
As a result, vector graphics are the best choice for artwork, such
as logos, that will be used at various sizes and in various output media.
The vector objects you create using the drawing and shape tools
in Adobe Creative Suite are examples of vector
graphics. You can use the Copy and Paste commands to duplicate vector
graphics betweenCreative Suite components.
