1. IIRC raster graphics is like MS paint and shit. Usually referred to as Bitmap. The program renders the photo block by block or something.
Vector graphics is like Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator. The picture is continuously rendered regardless of size/stretching/skewing.

If you got Adobe/Macromedia Fireworks play around with the Bitmap and Vector subsections on the left pane.

2. So you can fucking edit the layers individually rather than saving it as a flattened image. Saving in jpeg flattens/merges all layers into a giant cluster so if you wanna edit out like a shadow on the topmost layer you can't unless you save it as a .psd file.

3. im pretty sure its picas.

4. No. That only gives the pixels per inch. thats like saying two monitors are the same size cause they both got 800x600 resolution.(kinda skeptical on this one)

Do the rest im too lazy.

Why would you choose to save your “master” image file as a .psd instead of a .jpg?


'cause I'm Rick James, bitch!

1. raster = bitmap image. pixel like effect
vector = image created using some kind of lines ,etc (such as adobe illustrator pen tool)
2. saving your master file as a psd allows you to edit in the future.
3. DPI. dots per inch
4. No it is not safe to assume they are the same size, but it is true to assume that they were print at the same resolution with the same quality
5. always save your scans as .tiffs into your support art folder
6. stupid question
7. crop the image after scanning
