Chapter 27. Grayscale, Line Art, and Vectors > Vector Graphics and Printing

Vector Graphics and Printing

If your Photoshop image includes vector data—such as shapes, type, and so on—you can choose to print the file using that vector data, rather than rasterizing the entire image. Why would you want to do this? Vector data prints at the resolution of the actual printer or other output device, regardless of the resolution of the Photoshop file. Raster data, on the other hand, is at the behest of the file's resolution as set in Photoshop's Image Size dialog box.
