Raster Graphics (Pixels)

Raster (or pixel-based) graphics are images made up of tiny dots called pixels. Each pixel has its own color, and together they form a complete picture. When you zoom in or make the image bigger, it can look blurry or pixelated because the pixels get larger. Common examples of raster graphics include photos you take with your phone. Popular file types are JPEG, PNG, and GIF.

Due to their pixel-based nature, raster graphics are widely used in digital photography, web design, and print media where high-resolution detail is essential. These images are great for detailed pictures but don’t resize well.

Raster graphics are unlike vector graphics, which use mathematical equations to create shapes, raster images are resolution-dependent, meaning their quality deteriorates when scaled up.
