While the PDF and vector file formats are different, a PDF file can contain vector elements, depending on how it was created and what it contains. PDF is a versatile file format that can store text, images, vector graphics, and more. Vector elements in a PDF are made up of mathematical equations defining shapes, lines, and text. A vector file is a type of computer graphic that is defined by mathematical equations to represent geometric shapes. Its scalability makes vector files ideal for graphics that need to be resized frequently, such as logos, icons, and illustrations. Using our secure tool, you can change PDF to SVG easily as well.
