This section is intended for the graphic software programs and utilities associated with the creation and manipulation of digital graphics. Two techniques are used for creating and maintaining pictures in a computer. The first method called "vector graphics," which maintains the image as a series of points, lines, arcs and other geometric shapes. The second method called "bitmapped graphics" and also known as "raster graphics," they resemble a television, where the picture image is made up of dots. Understanding these two techniques and how they interweave is crucial. Thank you. Graphics Software Computers.
