You can do a lot of things with vector graphics, eventually however the vector graphics need to be rendered to pixels, rasters etc. This rendering process gets slower the more data you have. In fact 3D graphics is also a vector graphic data. 3d renders show the limitations of your rendering speed as many renders to print size take hours to do. Second, most ...

While vector images have many advantages, they also have shortcomings. Vector data is, in general, better suited for items which have hard edges. Vector graphics do not excel at creating soft edges areas or shapes which blend into other soft-edged shapes. Yes, you can use raster effects in many graphics applications to blur or "undefine" the edges of ...

Photographs and pixel-based art can have a real-world fidelity that vector artwork can not easily achieve. In real life, things are not really mathematically precise and clean. One can get greater photo-realism per file-size bit with pixels than with a vector shape. That's not to say you can't achieve near photo-realism with vectors - rather that you'll ...

Because some things almost cannot be vectorised. So, in the world of sound almost the same question can be asked: "Why we are still using wave files when MIDI has so many advantages". Yes, MIDI files can be stretched or transposed in any ratio, and file size is hundreds of times smaller. And also, they can be exported in any quality using different samples. ...

Simple Subtract and Union with multiple ovals... Draw 2 ovals. Subtract the top one from the bottom one. Draw a small oval near the top of the half moon, make sure it overlaps the edges of the half moon, duplicate this smaller oval (you will need the 2nd one later). Subtract one of the small ovals from the half moon. Select the half moon and hit Layers / ...

Without seeing the actual logo it's not possible to give a definitive answer to this, but importing it as a Shape Layer or vector paths would be the best way to do it if it's a simple logo, because your PSD would then contain live vector shapes that would output cleanly to PDF. When you import a vector logo (or any other vector) as a Smart Object, Photoshop ...

You should try doing that with the displacement effect. Go to Filters > Filter Editor... then add Effect: Image. Google for a fish-eye displacement map (it will look like a green-red ball) and upload it to the Image filter. Now add displacement effect. Route its first input to a Source Graphic (drag FX's triangle) and the second to the Image. Under ...

Looks a lot like Arial Condensed. If it's just a placeholder until you can get an officially sanctioned logo Arial Condensed will probably suffice.

I can think only few reasons why you can't select objects in AI. Check Layers, maybe some layers are locked. Also go to OBJECT > UNLOCK ALL (Alt+Ctrl+2) Check object grouping (maybe it is inside another group) Transparency mask

Two options: You use Illustrators basic Drawing Tools to trace the Images. Like that you get a redrawn vector-version of your image. There's lots of Information about the usage of basic Illustrator drawingtools here on StackExchange. You use the Autotrace function of illustrator. In the Object menu you find Image Trace. Use it while you have your picture ...
