Vector layers
Vector layers are layers with only vector objects (lines and shapes), vector text, or vector groups. Vector objects and text are composed of geometric characteristics — lines, curves, and their locations. When you edit vector objects and text, you edit these lines and curves, rather than the individual pixels. Vector graphics and vector text maintain their clarity and detail at any size or print resolution.Use vector layers to create objects or text that you can easily edit. The effects commands, the painting tools, and many other tools do NOT apply to vector objects.
