You need special software like Illustrator, PS, or even Gimp to use vectors.

@wolfpackbride: Like ATP2011 said, you need different programs to work with vectors. However, I noticed in the description of a few images I looked at that they come as jpg files, not just vectors. PM me if there’s a vector you like but don’t have the software to change it. You can always send me the file and I’ll swap out a colour or whatever for you. I think GIMP is a free download that can do it though which you may want to get anyways, although I haven’t used it myself.

thank you!!  i love vectors!  i too didn’t want to pay, so i searched google for free vector images and luckily found a damask one for our wedding invitations!

you can also download a free trial of Illustrator and edit the vectors that way.

A vector is just an image made of lines, shapes, and curves rather than pixels (like most graphics). You generally use different programs to create them and they don’t become blurred when zoomed in or out.

They aren’t necessarily better quality than pixel based formats in their original size, but aren’t as common. There are many websites with free use images that are not vectors and are of perfectly good quality for things like invitations and programs.

Your link definitely might be worth checking out, just thought I’d clarify a bit.
