Vector Art – Is It Really Superior Way for Imaging Needs?

Written by Clipping Path India on March 31, 2012. Posted in Article, Raster to Vector

Vector art has evolved immensely with times. As digital needs increase in every sector its applications are varied. In contrast to Bitmap, it has various file formats that support its features. Thus making it a superior factor for major imaging needs.

The art of photography has come a long way from the days when it was first devised. At its dawn of its invention, it created waves among artist because it was the most power medium to interpret things and nature most realistically. The leap from graphical to digital images was substantial one to open up new avenues. The two forms of digital images namely Bitmap and Vector images are constantly evolved to suit the changing tastes of the viewers. Often, it is debated that Vector art is superior and its supports the increasingly complex techniques of image editing. But, in reality both the forms of digital images have specific set of benefits and support various applications. And the fact that any Bitmap image can be easily converted into Vector and back makes it easier for the artists to make a more comprehensive use of the same. Enjoy reading a comprehensive study on vector art.

What is vector art?

It is well known that mathematical statements or commands are used to create digital vector images. These mathematical statements and commands are used to place shapes and line in three-dimensional or two-dimensional spaces. These vector statements are saved in the form of a sequence. Images saved in this format can easily be recovered and manipulated. Editing includes changing of the mathematical statements or codes. They are preferred over the bitmap images because in this case the files are much smaller in size.

Vector images and its implication

In sharp contrast to the Bit-map images, which is suitable for natural objects, vector images are largely used for abstract objects. This is one of the merits of vector images that they can easily be scaled without hampering the quality of the data. Thus, abstract objects like company maps, company logos etc, which need constant manipulation, can easily be put into vector format. So, the process of resizing them becomes easier and there is no loss of quality. But there is a limitation to the number of times a vector can be resized. If the process of scaling the images is repeated beyond a permissible limit, then there can be potential loss of quality. While using vector art one must be careful because even minute errors performed during the drawing can become prominent once the images are enlarged. At the same time, the vector lines may not be visible once the images are reduced to great extent.

Application that support vector art

There are a number of applications that support vector art. But it remains choice of the user to make choice on the basis of factors like user’s platform and thee available features. The choice is further depended on whether it will be used for technical use or for artistic use. Some of the common applications that support vector art are Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator.

File formats used by Vector art

The results are improved to great extent and it easy to manipulate them. But as compared to Bitmap images, in case of Vector images the choice of file storage formats are limited. The two most widely used file formats for this reason are EPS and PDF.

Shoe Photography – Capturing a Shoe in a Frame

Written by Clipping Path India on March 21, 2012. Posted in Article, Product Photography

Shoes reflect a person’s character and personality to a large extent. Photographing a shoe is a creative thing, and only professionals with knowledge in the field can achieve the best output. The key is to generate an image that is interesting to look at.

Just like clothes, shoes too need special attention. However attractive your dress is, if your shoes are tedious, your look will automatically turn unexciting. Shoe photography is performed for shoe dealers, shoe manufacturers, shoe brands, etc. all around the world by some of the major shoe photographers. Shoes captured without a foot in it or with a foot create different impact on the viewers. Shoes come in a variety of designs, styles, colors and sizes. The ability to view a shoe from various angles is what a photographer is an expert at. Shoe photography covers all the angles of a shoe from the sole, the design, the stitching and the outer part of the shoe. This increases the customers experience and also augments the chance of online sales.

Shoe photographers keep into account a number of things before capturing shoes.

1: Using an LCD screen camera: When a photographer is clicking photos of shoes, he makes it a point to capture it from a camera with a LCD screen. LCD screen helps in adjusting the frame when the camera is placed so close to the ground. Ones that the photographer gets close to the feet, LCD screen helps in tuning the shot. It also enables the photographer to shoot from different angles. All you have to do is point and shoot amazing images.

2: The lighting: Light plays a huge role while capturing any kind of image in a camera. Products like shoes need special attention of lighting in an image. Professional photographer, who has years of experience in shoe photography, makes use of unique lighting techniques to bring in unusual effects and clarity into the picture. If the image lacks proper lighting, then it will make the shoe look poor in quality and always divert the customers mind.

3: Consistency: A professional photographer in the shoe photography industry know very well about the idea of being consistent. Consistency is needed in every field as it helps in maintaining a theme of the image. Every photographer has a special idea of capturing images. Keeping the same focal length and frame of the image, the photographer has to remain consistent to make all the shoe images and different angles have the same effect on the viewers. This way when the images are uploaded in the website or are published in a product catalogue, the theme of the pictures is maintained making it far more interesting.

4: Color and exposure adjustment: Sometimes when the shoes are seen in an image, their colors seem to be dull making the image look lifeless. The two most extremely technical things about the camera are the exposure and the color. Ones the shoe is captured in a frame, you can change color in Photoshop, but over exposure drops the content of the picture. These are some technically changes that are difficult to adjust later.

These are some of the important elements that a photographers needs to keep in mind while capturing a shoe in a frame.
