- Let's take a look at raster graphics.…These tend to be pixel-based graphics.…Pixels or picture elements are individual squares of light…that are used to create detail with an image.…Typically raster graphics are used for things…that are photographic in nature or continuous in tone.…Different squares of light combine to create…recognizable shapes.…However, it's important that you have enough pixels…in order to resolve the detail…in the image that you're trying to build.…Let's take a look at a photo for a second.…You'll notice here with the image of the bear…that you clearly see a bear against a log…but as we continue to zoom in,…you'll start to recognize squares of light.…
Currently I'm at 300% magnification.…400% and you can start to see the outline…of the individual pixels.…By 600% the blockiness of the image…becomes visible.…As you continue to zoom in,…you'll notice that the image…is comprised of several pixels.…Now, Photoshop makes it a bit easy…to see these individual pixels…by showing you a pixel grid.…This option maybe on or off…
