Unlike JPEGs, GIFs, and BMP images, vector graphics are not made up of a grid of pixels. Instead, vector graphics are comprised of paths, which are defined by a start and end point, along with other points, curves, and angles along the way. A path can be a line, a square, a triangle, or a […]
Retina Display gets its name from Apple’s claim that screens made with the technology are so sharp and high quality that it’s impossible for the human eye to distinguish individual pixels. Retina Display smoothes the jagged edges of the pixels that make up images on screens.
esolution is in basic terms, the size of an image. It’s the density of dots that make up the image when printing. The bigger resolution, the more detailed it is, the lower the resolution, the less detailed and fuzzy it becomes. DPI (dots per inch) and PPI (pixels per inch) are often used and are […]
Raster graphics are digital images created or captured (for example, by scanning in a photo) as a set of samples of a given space. A raster is a grid of x and y coordinates on a display space. (And for three-dimensional images, a z coordinate.) A raster image file identifies which of these coordinates to […]
