Abstract: For decades the same technologies has been used for generating images on computer systems. On the one hand you have bitmap and on the other hand vector technology. Bitmap or pixel technology is mostly used for the representation of rich colour images. The other available imaging technology, vectors, is mainly used to present logos and drawings without photo realistic details. But both techniques have their disadvantages and advantages. In recent years a lot of research has been done to combine the advantages of both techniques in a comprehensive solution. Much research focused on giving a vector illustration a realistic picture look. There was no development from scratch and that is exactly what this paper wants to propose, an algorithm to invent the pixel again. By always applying new developments on existing technologies generating images became a mix of various techniques and a rather complex matter. With the use of VectorPixels (VP) the concept of a pixel will be redefined. In contrast with a pixel (Picture Element) a VectorPixel will be defined by a mathematical description and be resolution independent.
