Bitmap:

Bitmap images are created through the pixels and this usually was captured by the digital camera or scanner. Pixels are small squares with a numerical value which depicts the color of each pixel.  If we are use the wrong pixels then if we want to enlarge the picture , the picture will become jaggiest.

Vector:
