Graphic Digital Media Desktop publishing Allows you to create any type of ……. ……. (eg. …………, ………….. and ……… cards) Allows you to combine data (text and graphics) from a variety of sources to create your own page ………. with precise control over all objects on the page. Uses digital images extensively. Examples: Adobe InDesign or PageMaker, MS Publisher, QuarkXPress, Print Shop
Graphic Digital Media Graphic Design Creates or edits images - used for diagrams and illustrations, photos, artworks and 3-D images. Examples: Photoshop, PaintShop Pro (photography) Illustrator, Freehand (technical drawing) Corel Painter, TwistedBrush (artistic drawing) Maya 3D, 3D StudioMax (3-D graphics)
Data Compression methods Read pages 272 -273 of the text, then answer the following: What is data compression used for? Name two hardware devices that sometimes have data compression built-in. Name the two main methods used to compress digital data and briefly describe the features of each. Name a program that uses each method of data compression. Would you use lossy compression to reduce the size and transmission time of a very large word-processed document, spreadsheet or database? Explain why or why not.
Data transmission methods There are two different ways of sending binary data between computers, or between computers and other devices (such as printers, scanners, etc). Text Activity (pg 272): Name the two methods of binary data transmission. Describe how the binary data travels in each method. Draw a simple diagram of each method. List the advantages of serial data transmission over parallel. When is it appropriate to use parallel over serial?
Bitmapped and Vector Graphics 1.What are a)Bit-mapped graphics? b)Vector graphics? 2.Explain the difference between Paint software and Draw software. 3.From the programs listed on the previous slide, name the a)Paint programs b)Draw programs 4.Answer Think questions 3 & 4 from page 97, Ware textbook.
Manipulating graphics data Techniques used to manipulate graphics include: Resizing Cropping Special effects Rendering Use pages 102-105 of the text to describe these techniques, why they are used and how they may effect the image (eg. Memory size, quality of image).
