4. Making Still Images

4.1. Bitmaps (raster)

4.1.1. painting program

4.1.2. Bitmaps Sources

4.1.3. Bitmap Software Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator Corel’s Painter and CorelDraw Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator

4.2. Vector-drawing

4.2.1. drawing program

4.2.2. Vector-drawn graphics

4.2.3. Vector-drawn images

4.3. Vector-drawn vs Bitmaps

4.3.1. Vector less memory space & smaller file size download faster easily scalable rescaled image retains the quality of the original cannot be used for photorealistic images. plug-in for web-based display

4.3.2. Bitmaps Resizing a bitmapped image requires either duplicating pixels not easily scalable & resizable converted to vector images using autotracing

4.4. 3-D drawing and rendering

4.4.1. Tools Daz3D Form*Z NewTek's Lightwave Autodesk's Maya Trimble's SketchUp

4.4.2. Application Modeling Extrusion Lathing
