2.01 graphing terms

Graphics the products of the graphic arts, esp. commercial design or illustration
Color depth the bit depth specifies the number of bits used for each color component. When referring to a pixel the concept can be defined as bits per pixel (bpp), which specifies the number of bits used.
Compression the action of compressing or being compressed.
Lossless having or involving no dissipation of electrical or electromagnetic energy.
Lossy having or involving the dissipation of electrical or electromagnetic energy
Portability is a characteristic attributed to a computer program if it can be used in an operating systems other than the one in which it was created without requiring major rework. Porting is the task of doing any work necessary
Transparency the condition of being transparent.
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.
Vector Graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical expressions, to represent images in computer graphics.
Meta Graphics An image in meta format is a combination of both of the two basic formats; vector and raster format. Examples of meta images are scanned photos in which you want to include describing text/numbers, graphics (eg arrows) or both.
GIF a lossless format for compressing image files.

PNG for Portable Network Graphics) is a file format for image compression that, in time, is expected to replace the Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) that is widely used on today's Interne

Advantages of Vector Format advantage of vector graphics programs over bitmap editors is that multiple overlapping elements can be manipulated independently
Disadvantages of Vector Format are basically points connected by lines of various shapes, ... a disadvantage - it's just not something for which vector formats are well suited
Vector File Formats devices such as cameras and scanners produce essentially continuous-tone raster graphics that are impractical to convert into vectors, and so for this type of work, an image editor will operate on the pixels
Clip Art simple pictures and symbols made available for computer users to add to their documents.
Photographs a picture made using a camera, in which an image is focused onto film or other light-sensitive material and then made visible and permanent by chemical treatment, or stored digitally

Resolution the action of solving a problem, dispute, or contentious matter.
PPI PPI (pixels per inch) refers to the input resolution of a photograph or image.
DPI digital image files[edit] In printing, DPI (dots per inch) refers to the output resolution of a printer or imagesetter, and
Aspect Ratio the ratio of two dimensions of something as considered from a specific direction, in particular
Cloning propagate (an organism or cell) as a clone.
Cropping cut (something, esp. a person's hair) very short.
Filters a porous device for removing impurities or solid particles from a liquid or gas passed through it.
Gradients an inclined part of a road or railway; a slope
