Is there a way to determine if a graphic file is a vector image other than opening it and scaling it up to see what happens?

Hi dec52,

Some graphic file formats are solely raster: PNG, JPEG, TIFF and many others.
PDF files can keep vector, raster or both types of graphics. Without opening such file, there is no way to know whether it is vector or raster.

Hi,
It seems that most (if not all) pdf files from BeLight cliparts collection are made of vectors. Other files from there are jpeg files (so bitmap) and hpi (a not so common bitmap format).
