Graphics as Objects

The two types of graphics used in Fireworks are bitmap graphics and vector graphics (see Figure 26.01). The simplest way to explain the difference between the two is that bitmap graphics are made up of rows and columns of pixels, whereas vector graphics are made up of several vector objects such as rectangles, lines, text, and ovals.

Figure 26.1. Notice the difference in selection between the bitmap graphics on the left and the vector graphics on the right. The bitmap graphics are selected by color, whereas the vector graphics are individually selected.
