I am tasked with creating a vector based print work. And I’m very new to print design.
Is it a good idea to include raster photography inside my vector image? It seems to destroy the whole point of “infinite scalability”. How do I create something that can be scalable, so as to be used on large outdoor banners and such?
Thanks for your help! I’m quite lost. 🙁
There’s not really a problem including raster images provided you know the final output.
Raster images, inside a vector app or not, always have the same limitations in terms of scaling. Placing a raster image into a vector app does not make it resolution independent.
With that in mind, it’s really your call.
If you need infinite scalability, then you should avoid raster images in all cases.
