Composition+ It can also be thought of as the organization of the elements of art according to the principles art. -
Compression+ There are two types of image file compression algorithms: lossless and lossy. Lossless compression algorithms reduce file size while preserving a perfect copy of the original uncompressed image.

Contour/silhouette + The image of a person, object or scene represented as solid shape of single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject. -
Contour/silhouette + The interior of a silhouette is featureless, and the whole is typically presented on a light background, usually white, or none at all. -
Contrast+ A principle of art, contrast refers to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
Crop On basic way to modify images is to crop the - remove some part of the image. Cropping changes the appearance of the images in order to better fit the layout, make statement, or improve the overall appearance of the of the design.
Dominance Dominance is created by contrasting size, positioning, color, style, or shape. The focal point should dominate the design with sacrificing the unity of the whole.

GIF GIF images display up to 256 colors. GIF images generally have very small file sizes and are the most widely used graphic format on the web. The low quality resulting from compression makes them unsuitable for professional printing.
