    1. 1. Examining Media Elements : Graphics By Janice Remington MCIS/MMIS 681 Electronic Multimedia Systems Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences Nova Southeastern University Summer 2011
    2. 2. Bitmap vs. Vector <ul><li>Paint graphics vs. Drawn </li></ul>
    3. 3. Bitmap <ul><li>Most appropriate for photorealistic images and complex drawing </li></ul><ul><li>Large file sizes, has inability to scale or resize the image easily while maintaining quality </li></ul><ul><li>Image’s bit depth determines the number of colors that can be displayed by an individual pixel </li></ul><ul><li>Can be found on a screen, scanned, downloaded from a website, or from a video capture device </li></ul><ul><li>Can manipulate or adjust its properties </li></ul><ul><li>Colors will seem darker or richer </li></ul>
    4. 4. Vector <ul><li>Most appropriate for lines, boxes, circles, polygons, and other graphic shapes that can be mathematically expressed in angles, coordinates, and distances </li></ul><ul><li>Can be filled with color or patterns, and can be selected as a single object </li></ul><ul><li>Uses a fraction of memory space required to describe and store the same object in bitmap form </li></ul><ul><li>Can be downloaded and drawn faster </li></ul><ul><li>Can export as a bitmap </li></ul><ul><li>Requires a plug-in for display on a web page </li></ul><ul><li>Can not be used for photo realistic images </li></ul>
    5. 5. Pictures vs. Graphics <ul><li>Vector: Graphics </li></ul><ul><li>Bitmap: Pictures </li></ul>
    6. 6. Compression Algorithms <ul><li>Lossless: in which a decompressed file is of exactly the same size as the original file because no detail or content is lost in compression-decompression process </li></ul><ul><li>Lossy: in which a decompressed file is smaller in size than the original file because some detail or content is lost in compression-decompression process </li></ul>
    7. 7. File Formats <ul><li>GIF, JPEG, PNG: use compression within the file </li></ul><ul><li>JPEG, GIF: most common bitmap formats used on the Web and may be considered cross platform </li></ul><ul><li>BMP, TIFF: Mostly used in Windows </li></ul>
    8. 8. File Format Acronyms <ul><li>TIFF: Tagged Interchange File Format </li></ul><ul><li>GIF: Graphic Interchange Format </li></ul><ul><li>BMP: A Windows Bitmap Image File Format </li></ul><ul><li>JPEG: Joint Photographic Experts Group </li></ul><ul><li>PNG: Portable Network Graphic </li></ul>
    9. 9. File Format Definitions <ul><li>TIFF: a universal bitmapped image format </li></ul><ul><li>GIF: a proprietary bitmap image format limited to a palette of 256 colors and widely used on the Web </li></ul><ul><li>BMP: designated with the .bmp file extension </li></ul><ul><li>JPEG: designation for a bitmap image file format widely used on the Web for photo-realistic images, designated by the .jpg file extension </li></ul><ul><li>PNG: bitmap image file format created as a free alternative to the GIF format </li></ul>
    10. 10. Things to Remember <ul><li>Make sure your multimedia authoring package can import the image files you produce, and that your application can export such a file </li></ul><ul><li>Bitmap: photo-realistic images </li></ul><ul><li>Vector: easy to size and manipulate images </li></ul>
