An other vector program is Corel Draw. A vector is a path, stroke, line or point. You create shapes, curves, and lines with geometric formulas such as bezier curves. Think of it as a graph with one side called x and one y. Point A is two squares up and one over. Point B is five squares up and six over. Line A-B is from point A to point B. An enclosed space can be filled in with color. These programs, like Corel Draw, do the formulas for you. The things you make for them can be enlarged as much as you wish without any problem because they do not use pixels like a raster program. A couple of raster programs are Paint Shop Pro or PS or PSE. Vector programs have a somewhat high learning curve but are fun if you get to know them. Hope this helps.
