rumuscinta FreeHand is a vector-graphic drawing application. A vector-graphic image is resolution-independent--it can be scaled to any size and printed on any output device at any resolution, without losing detail or clarity. In contrast, bitmap graphics--commonly 3podm Used in image-editing applications--are composed of pixels. Their display depends on the resolution of the monitor or printer. Bitmap graphics can appear jagged and lose detail when they're scaled onscreen or printed at a low resolution. For more details on vector graphics, see About vector graphics.
Although vector graphics always appear at your computer's maximum screen resolution, you can specify a lower resolution for preparing draft documents. For more information, see rumuscinta
