ITEC2110:Fall2010:Section12:Eric Petrucelli: BitMap Project
For my bitmap project, I decided to edit a picture that I took from when I lived on Clearwater Beach in Florida. This is a picture from my neighborhood looking over the waterway leading to the gulf of mexico.
What file extensions are most common to bitmap images? Name at least 3.
.jpg .bmp .gmp
Are bitmap images easier to work on than vector? Why or Why not?
Yes, because is easier to render bitmap images into a computer since the images are already pixel base
Why are bitmap images more common in everyday usage? Include its advantages in your answer.
They are used in clipart, digital photography and other 2-dimensional images. The images are pixelated, so they can be compressed to take up less storage on the computer.
What were the most useful feature(s) used in GIMP that helped you with your project?
The most useful features were the tutorials. I have never used gimp and would have been lost without them.
