  • 1. Computer graphics is using computers to generate and display images. It is about how to program a computer to generate photo-realistic images. Computer graphics are graphics created using computers and the representation of image data by a computer specifically with help from specialized graphic hardware and software.
  • 2. Graphics is cool I like to see what I’m doing I like to show people what I’m doing Graphics is interesting Involves simulation, algorithms, architecture… Almost no area in which graphical displays cannot be used
  • 3. Many of the leading scientists through the ages have been ‘visual thinkers’… -Leonardo da Vinci -Einstein -Clerk Maxwell
  • 4. Interactive Graphics In interactive computer graphics user have some control over the picture i.e user can make any change in the produced image. Passive Graphics A computer graphics operation that transfers automatically and without operator intervention. Noninteractive computer graphics involves one way communication between the computer and the user.
