Frequently Asked Questions About KS3 Images

What is an image?

An image in data representation is a visual representation of information that is stored in digital form. In a computer, an image is represented by a set of binary numbers that define the color, size, and position of each pixel in the image.

What is a pixel?

A pixel, short for picture element, is the smallest unit of an image that can be individually processed and displayed by a computer. Pixels are the building blocks of digital images and their arrangement determines the overall appearance of the image.

What is the difference between raster and vector images?

Raster images are made up of pixels and are resolution dependent, meaning that the quality of the image can degrade when it is enlarged. Vector images, on the other hand, are made up of paths and are resolution independent, meaning that the quality of the image remains the same regardless of its size.

How are images stored in a computer?

Images are stored in a computer as binary data, with each pixel represented by a set of numbers that define its color and position. This binary data is then stored in image file formats such as JPEG, PNG, or GIF.

Why is the size of an image important in data representation?

The size of an image is important in data representation because it determines the amount of memory required to store the image and the amount of time required to process and display it. Large images take up more memory and processing power, so reducing the size of images can improve the performance of computer systems and reduce data storage requirements.
