    Vector graphics are scalable, mathematical representations of points and colors codes, hence the 'vector' name. The key is that unlike raster, you can infinitely (hardware pending) scale the image output up or down in layout size. So saying "increase the size of images" is a little misleading, in that you are simply scaling the output image, not destructively changing the core vector information which is relative only to itself. The inverse is also true and very handy. You could create a 12" x 12" emoticon because the increased project scale would allow you to work in greater detail and clarity. After completed, you can then scale down to 10 x 10 pixels without any loss of detail other than perceived loss due to monitor limits and visual limits.

    The other misconception about vector graphics is that you are limited to tracing and/or cartoonish graphics. That was definitely the case a few years back, but computing power, Adobe software and a good pen and tablet have allowed people to progress vector art in crazy strides:

    I'm not a big graphic designer, so I guess I don't even really need to know how to vector. As long as I can get something to look the way I want it to, I'm fine with it. I've done blog layouts and such to my liking, so I guess I don't really need to know how to do anything too in-depth.
