Vexels- what are they?
Gallery Descriptions and Miscats The definition To understand what Vexels really are you must get to know Vexel's bigger brother- Vector. Both can be created with a tool called Pen tool or Lasso Tool (or similar- depending of the graphic software) using layers of shapes filled with solid colour or gradient BUT Vectors are created using vector layers while Vexels use raster layers. Vexel = Vector + Pixel To simplify: Vectors are scalable (you can enhance or scale them down and all shapes will stay sharp and crisp) and Vexels are not (when you expand a Vexel you can see pixelation, as rasters are based on pixels). Vector expanded to 300% V
