Not all images created in Art Text are in vector format. This depends on the original graphics and applied effects.

If any of this is true:
* original content is raster,
* output file format is raster,
* applied effect produces the raster result,
the final image will be in raster format.

The original content is a vector for sure when it is text, shape or icon.
Images loaded from your hard drive can be in vector or raster format.
In Art Text, only PDF graphic format can be used for saving vector images.

Effects produce vector or raster images according to this list.

Effect Result
Plain color fill Vector
Gradient fill Raster
Texture Vector if the texture image is vector
Materials Raster
Transformation Vector
Stroke Vector
Shadow and Glow Raster
Blending layers Raster
Merging layers Vector
