But this is not the case with pixel images, and if you enlarge the image a little, you will experience a drop in quality.

If we want to examine vector photos graphically, we must say that vector photos are made of different pixel sizes together. Most online images found on the Internet are checkered.

The photo background is made of pixels containing color to form and transfer the photo.

Vector graphics also use colored pixels and squares to create color. In fact, we are trying to say that the type of formula and geometry that make up an image is independent of its resolution.

That is, the image does not lose its quality, but is preserved by the polygon containing the color of the nature of the image. However, this is not the case with low quality photos and by zooming in on the photo, its elements become checkered.
