    Default Vector Images in Java

    I want to use vector images in my code.This is because I've used raster images(.png) previously in my code inorder to set the icon for my jlabel.

    When I work in high resolution monitor, the images are not resizing properly.
    So, I want to convert raster images to vector images and then I want to use those images in my jlabel.

    So, pls tell me how to convert raster image to vector image and how to use the vector image in my jlabel.

    Thanks in advance,

    Default Re: Vector Images in Java

    Unfortunately I don't think there's a good method to do this. Vector images store data about how to draw the image, which is difficult if not impossible to recover accurately from a raster image. There are two possible solutions:
    1. Redraw the icons using a vector graphics program.
    2. Redraw the icons using a raster graphics program but make the icons higher resolution. Note that high resolution images don't necessarily scale down that well.
