Chapter - 6 : Applications of Computer Graphics
Computers have become a powerful tool for the rapid and economical production of pictures. There is virtually no area in which graphical displays cannot be used to some advantage, and so it is not surprising to find the use of computer graphics so widespread. Although early applications in engineering and science had to rely on expensive and cumbersome equipment, advances in computer technology have made interactive computer graphics a practical tool. Today, we find computer graphics used routinely in such diverse areas as science, engineering, medicine, business, industry, government

The entire market for video, data, and graphics projectors in 1988 comprised of 30,847 units (table 1). Although Barco Projection Systems (BPS) only captured 14% of the aggregate total for projectors, for the corporate and industrial environments, BPS offered an unequaled level of quality in high end projectors due to the continuous improvements in scan rates and general performance compared to its peers.

Image Editing Tools for
Web Design and Development
August 24, 2013
Image editing involves methods of altering images, to both digital photographs and traditional photographs. Applications used to create interactive Web graphics are the primary tools designers use to alter images. Many image editing programs are also used to render or create computer art from scratch. Designers must consider the important elements of a digital tool when trying to choose one for a specific purpose.
One of the requirements for many of the tools designers use is having a procedure to allow the user to select part(s) of an image, and applying a change without

how many pixels (dots) are included in 1 square inch of space. The more pixels included in that space, the higher the resolution. Computer monitors use no more than 72 pixels (dots) per inch, so going higher is pointless. However a minimum of 300 dots per inch is usually recommended for printing. RGB: the color mode that is read by computer screens and the web. The RGB mode consists of red, green, and blue color combinations. Anything created for web use should be created in RGB color mode, while anything for print should be created in CMYK color mode. Vector: a graphics format that uses shapes and paths (lines) to form graphic images. Vector graphics are resolution independent and regardless of how magnified, all edges will remain crisp, clear, and smooth. This ability to stay crisp at any size, means vector graphics are great for logos, line art, and other designs that don’t require complicated coloring or textures.

Another major issue to tackle is ease of the viewer to view the splash page. A splash page that contains large graphics, animations, or movies may alienate viewers with slow connections. Many computer users do not have the patience to sit through a graphic/animation download when they do not even know if the following site is what they want to view. Another issue that must be tackled deals with splash sites that use animations or movies. Not all browsers are compatible with animations and/or movies. Yet another set of computer users will be alienated when they cannot even see the splash page they were meant to see. A website and its splash page can be the neatest sites one’s seen, but if the

Some cards are "low-profile" cards, meaning that they are shorter than standard cards and will fit in a lower height computer chassis. (There is a "low profile PCI card" standard  that specifies a much smaller bracket and board area).

Human-computer interaction is considered to be the interaction between computer users and computers. This comes about with the aid of software and hardware. Some of the basic peripherals that aid in interaction between humans and computers are mice, keyboards and the computer monitor. Since the computer and people are involved, getting necessary information from both could go a long way in trying to make the interaction between the two is a success. On the computer side, information that could lead to a successful human-computer interaction is programming languages, the type of graphics and the operating system being used.

Computers have impacted today’s society in many ways; they have made entertainment more entertaining by using computer graphics and animation to make things that are not real look more realistic. There are even some movies such as “Toy Story” and “A Bugs Life” which were done completely by computers. Imagine what the movies would be like if there wasn’t computer graphics and animation to make them what they are.

An online game is a game played over some form of computer network. At the present, this almost always means the Internet or equivalent technology; but games have always used whatever technology was current: modems before the internet, and hard wired terminals before modems. The expansion of online gaming has reflected the overall expansion of computer networks from small local networks to the Internet and the growth of Internet access itself. Online games can range from simple text based games to games incorporating complex graphics and virtual worlds populated by many players simultaneously. Many online games have associated online communities, making online games a form of social activity beyond single player games.

Yet, each operating system does it its own way. Hence, it is advantageous to know the pros and cons of each operating system before a decision is made. Any kind of operating system can be utilized in most environments; it's just a matter of difficulty supporting it regarding maintenance, compatibility problems and other concerns.
