Soz pal but you can't show images of vectors via the net as all the images we see are bitmaps, (text/fonts are about the only thing that are vectors) in other words if I created a vector image i would then have to export it as a png, jpg (bitmap image) etc. the only other way is to save it as a vector in its native format and then share it so you could download it.
and sadly no there isn't a vector camera.

Hi Nick :)
... thank you for your tutorial. Filling in the huge blanks about PNG, BMP, vectors, bitmaps etc

I have been dabbling with Paint.NET to create custom icons, a lot of experimenting to create decent looking 16x16 icons. 128x128 images don't always reduce to-well to 16x16.

Anyway I can view Vector files in Thumbnails Mode?
...I do have quite a number of vector files (AI, EPS) and would be great to be able to view them in thumbnail mode either on Explorer or any Image Viewing application. I'm now running Win 7 (7201) x64. I can get by with EPS on ACDSee but not the AI files, ofcourse I don't want to run Illusrator...
