Software for Collecting Images and Video

Software for Collecting Images, Videos and Audio
Images and Video
Digital cameras and optical scanners collect bit map data. The software to control how they collect their data is just as important as hardware that collects text and numbers.
Factors that will affect the image size and quality are:
Dpi (dots per inch): the number of image measurements made every inch of the scanned image.
Image type: controls the number of different colours that will be detected.
Images can be collected from the Web using a web browser. The only standard formats that work on all browsers are JPEG and GIF.
A paint program stores data about every pixel in an image bit map which can be entered via a mouse or graphics tablet.
A drawing program collects data about the lines and shapes that you have placed in the drawing. No data is stored describing any of the pixels this allows any part of the object to be altered without affecting anything else.
