"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, Visio is a vector-based drawing program
Yes. most new drawings would be based on a template, even a default template.
You cannot create bitmaps but you can buy a 3rd party product that will allow you to convert Visio diagrams into a bitmap.  For example http://www.verypdf.com/wordpress/201202/how-to-convert-ms-visio-documents-of-vsd-to-bmp-21751.html

Hope this helps.

So, Is Visio does not create bitmaps a true statement?
SnibborgOwnerCommented:
Yes,  Bitmap editors are more the area of photographers and cartoonists.  In other words, artistic works.  Visio is a business tool and its purpose is to create diagrams.  Manipulating lines, circles, etc is very difficult to achieve effectively with a bitmap editor and straightforward with a vector manipulating program.

Bitmap editing - Photoshop
Diagrams - Visio.

As I mentioned before, you can use a third party application to output the results as a bitmap, but the work is done with vector objects.
