III. Answer the following Questions.

1. What is Raster Graphics?

The picture or image which is created by Raster Graphics is entered as it is ‘as file and data’. Pictures are of two types one is Vector another one is Raster.

Raster Graphics are created on the basis of PIXELS. The photos taken by camera and the photos scanned by a scanner are of the Raster type. When we enlarge this type of photos we could see the pictures as rectangular layers or grids.

Raster File Types:

• .png (Portable Network Graphics)

• .jpg or .jpeg (Joint Photographies Experts Group)

• .gif (Graphics interchange Format)

• .tiff (Tagged Image File Format)

• .psd (Photoshop Document)

The Softward which edit the Raster Graphics:

• Adobe Photoshop

• Vector Graphics

As the Vector Pictures are created on the basis of Mathematics, even when we enlarge the picture it’s accuracy won’t change.

Types of Vector Graphics Files

• .eps (Encapsulated Post Script)

• .ai (Adobe Illustrator Artwork)

• .pdf (Portable Document Format)

• .svg (Scalable Vector Graphics)

• .sketch

2. Write notes on 2D and 3D pictures

As soon as we see TWO DIMENSIONAL (2D) & THREE DIMENSIONAL (3D) pictures we know the difference between the two. The two dimensional 2D images have only the two dimensions – length and height. But three dimensional images (3D) have length, height and width. 3 D images appear in front of our eyes like it happens in the real world.

Three dimensional videos will bring the scenes alive before our eyes. Already there are three dimensional films. Now three dimensional games have also got released.

Now there is another new technology – VIRTUAL REALITY in 3D. VIRTUAL REALITY is a technology which shows the computer image as real image. When we see games through this technology we can fell/perceive the setting of the game as real. Now this technology has been introduced in Smart Phones too.

3. Differentiate between Raster and Vector

Raster graphics

1. They are created on the basis pixies.

2. Independent of the complexity of the image.

3. Pictures are obtained from scanner.  

4. Cost less

5. Occupy more space

6. Files: .png, .jpg, .gif, .tiff, .psd

7. When enlarged the pictures show rectangular layers of grids.

Vector graphics

1.They are Created on the basis Mathematics.

2. Displays flicker when the image became too large

3. Scanner is not required.

4. Cost more

5. occupy less space

6. Files : .eps, .ai, .pdf, .svg, .sketch

7. When enlarged the accuracy of the picture won’t change.
