please how to download the imgage

Vlasta (2006-02-17 00:00:00):

I do not know what image you are talking about, but you can download images from web pages by clicking on them using yout right mouse button and selecting the appropriate command from the context menu.

Unknown author (2007-01-04 00:00:00):

I did not understand what you mean by:

"All images considered so far had rectangular shapes. But what if we need an image with an arbitrary shape, possibly with holes?"

Question & Suggestion:

1. What do you mean by 'holes'? Can you explain it through showing image examples...

Vlasta (2007-01-04 00:00:00):

OK, look for example on the image in the left upper corner of this page (the logo of this site). It does not appear to have rectangular shape and you can see the picture behind it through a "hole" in the center of the image.

Unknown author (2007-03-24 00:00:00):

Those are translucent parts of the picture

Unknown author (2007-07-01 00:00:00):

Ok. Lets say you want to bring an animated icon from 100x100 pixels to 50x50 pixels. How can i do that w/o screwing up the icon?

Really good & excallent piece of information.

Unknown author (2008-04-22 00:00:00):

this doesn't tell me what a computer image is

Unknown author (2008-07-29 00:00:00):

It tells you what it is in the most basic form possible, if all the math was laid out for you, you would be reading something to the equivalent of War and Peace. Basically, it is all math and equations in various types of languages that are known to the computer.

Unknown author (2008-08-14 00:00:00):

Back to the arbitrary shape. Lets say a scan of a reindeer like a color book pattern. All I want is the outline, how do I make the white background go away?

Vlasta (2008-08-14 00:00:00):

Fastest way of removing white background is by flood-filling it with active color set to transparent (and then of course by saving it using a file format supporting transparency, like .png). You can select maximum transparency by dragging the 4th slider (below red, green and blue) to the left.

invaderHUNK (2009-03-25 20:57:18):

man,so many images i gotta make!

Unknown author (2009-06-04 09:09:52):

What happened to .bmp? Bitmaps? Huh? The original computer image,it's still around today!It dosn't support alpha, though. It's a raster image.

Vlasta (2009-06-04 09:20:02):

It's around, but it has no real advantages for normal users and it is not a standard image format for web.

Unknown author (2009-11-12 21:56:10):

GIFs were the only images that can be an animation.

Unknown author (2010-01-11 12:05:34):

found it very useful. easily explained and absorbed!

sixλxis (2010-06-04 02:49:46):

Then how do you explain animated PNG's?

Vlasta (2010-06-04 11:31:51):

Animated PNG format is an extension to the classic PNG and it is backwards compatible.

Unknown author (2010-10-12 21:15:29):

yeah yeah you are right

Unknown author (2010-10-19 01:37:06):

whatever this is stupid

Unknown author (2010-11-05 22:05:35):

omg you people are lame stop looking at lame things!!!!!!! :-D

Unknown author (2010-11-17 05:37:43):

Just want to say thank you for taking the time to explain the basics to the people like me who no nothing! Every other "Paint" type application assumes that the user knows more than I do and I always-and I mean always-get totally lost after about 5 minutes of trying to work with an image. This will help, I'm sure of it. :-)

Unknown author (2010-12-17 12:29:25):

Afterall they are 0 and 1

Unknown author (2010-12-17 12:34:46):

Goto Paint and draw something colorful,
change the images to black and white,
save as jpeg file[ie, you are trying to create a b/w image. Obviously your plan is to have less memory strain].
Then check the bitdepth in property->details of the saved image.
Come back to paint, save the same file as monochrome.Then check the bitdepth in property->details of the saved image.

I think you got my point.

Unknown author (2012-02-23 12:19:20):

this is all just useless it hasn't helped me pliz modify it

Lost Girl (2012-04-15 00:19:51):

Ok, so vector images are clearer up close and raster images are blurrier up close, am I right so far?

Unknown author (2013-08-19 22:01:57):

What about Tifs, Pxrs, Mpos, yadda.. :-o

Unknown author (2013-09-13 10:12:12):

In my opinion this explanation is rather useful for a beginner because these are the relevant image formats in the internet (just svg is missing).
In the times of Google, Yahoo etc it is not difficult to acquire more knowledge about
these and other formats or compression methods.

Unknown author (2014-01-14 11:02:43):


this will help in my exaM TEEHEE

Unknown author (2014-03-26 06:41:37):

Just wanted to type here yo.
Nice. Love how smooth the vector images look up close. Very Nice.
But don't discriminate against the raster images, guys, just 'cause they're blurry it doesn't mean they don't have feelings too.
#Blurry Equality.

Peace out fellow ICT peeps :-)

Unknown author (2014-07-17 22:11:31):

I have a problem I have created an image using raster image but the edges of the image is not smooth and even after saving the edges is still not smooth.

Eddy (2014-11-14 03:35:26):

Raster images are not smooth up close (they are made of pixels). VECTOR images are still smooth when zooming in.
Hope that helped clarify.

Unknown author (2015-01-23 13:19:16):

this helped me a lot 8-)

Unknown author (2016-07-04 18:19:37):

good software

Unknown author (2016-10-17 22:40:02):

:-( what is this I don't understand I want to know HOW images are represented in a computer

:-o what is this

Unknown author (2017-01-13 12:31:26):

i need to know how computer stores an image and represent it
