    What’s it used for?

    The answer to that is how long is a piece of string? It can be used in photo production for editing huge amounts of photos, to lightly edit business images, create animated GIF’s, edit basic videos, design social media icons and create digital artwork similar to paintings. It truly is huge.

     

    What is a raster & what is a vector?

    In short raster refers to a photograph (pixels) whilst vector refers to a drawn piece of artwork. So for example if David Bailey had to pick one he’d opt for Photoshop whereas Vincent Van Gogh would go for Illustrator.
