When someone refers to manipulating graphical elements in a photo, wallpaper, background, etc. and they say they "vectored" something or that something in an object is a "vector"... what the holy fuck are they talking about?

I've never seen that word used that way and suddenly it seems it's being used to refer to something very specific that I just don't get.

Are these fuckers referring to putting a dark line around something? I've seen people refer to posterizing things as "vectoring" theme.... which is a goofy and pretty incorrect use. Is this just more of the same?

I'm old and I don't understand. Help me.

Hmm.. maybe it's absorbed a corporate buzzword somewhere? I know that in blogs, folks sometimes us "vector such_and_so" to indicate the source of a link or piece of info--not that that applies here, but maybe there's something similar going on. (However, I'm inclined to think "bastardization of vector graphics.")
