Digital Photography

Digital photography is the art and science of producing and manipulating digital photographs photographs that are represented as bit maps. Digital photographs can be produced in a number of ways:

  • Directly with a digital camera
  • By capturing a frame from a video
  • By scanning a conventional photograph
  • Once a photograph is in digital format, you can apply a wide variety of special effects to it with image enhancing software. You can then print the photo out on a normal printer or send it to a developing studio which will print it out on photographic paper.

    Although the resolution of digital photos is not nearly as high as photos produced from film, digital photography is ideal when you need instant, low-resolution pictures. It’s especially useful for photos that will be displayed on the World Wide Web because Web graphics need to be low resolution anyway so that they can be downloaded quickly.
