Hardware & Software
used to create digital graphics
A vector is a picture which is created by using a lines.
Is you zoom or stretch a picture
A Raster is on the other hand a picture that is formed by spots instead of lines.
If you zoom or stretch the image then you will not be able to see the image correctly.
Hardware is the inside and the out of the computer. Everything you can touch is classed as being Hardware. Some people sometimes get mixed up between that and Software, but you were to remember.
Motherboard – This is seen to be the center or know are the heart of the machine. is the main printed circuit board (PCB) found in computers and other expandable systems. It holds many of the crucial electronic components of the system, such as the central processing unit (CPU) and memory, and provides connectors for other peripherals. Unlike a back plane, a motherboard contains significant sub-systems such as the processor.
Motherboard specifically refers to a PCB with expansion capability and as the name suggests, this board is the "mother" of all components attached to it.

Hard drive – The hard drive is what stores all your data. It houses the hard disk, where all your files and folders are physically located. Different types - Small Computer System Interface, Solid State Drives, serial Advanced Technology Attachments, and Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics.

DVD Burner – A DVD recorder (also known as a DVDR, mainly outside of the UK and Ireland), is an optical disc recorder that uses Optical disc recording technologies to digitally record analog signal or digital signals onto blank writable DVD media. Such devices are available as either installable drives for computers or as standalone components for use in television studios or home theater systems.
Power Supply – converts mains AC to low-voltage regulated DC power for the internal components of a computer. Modern personal computers universally use a switched-mode power supply. Some power supplies have a manual selector for input voltage, while others automatically adapt to the supply voltage.

CPU – This is also known as the ‘Central processing Unit’, in the computer/device/s they have one of these, and they may have more this will be called ‘multiprocessing’. One of its features it t do all of the calculations the help the programs to run correctly.

CPU time and CPU usage have two main uses. First, it allows to quantify the overall business of the system. When the CPU usage is above 70%, the user may experience ‘LAG’. Such high CPU usage indicates insufficient processing power.
Video Card –This graphics chip usually has a small quantity of embedded memory and takes some of the system's main RAM, reducing the total RAM available. This is usually called integrated graphics or on-board graphics, and is usually low in performance and undesirable for those wishing to run 3D applications.
Memory – all of your saved and submitted work will be stored on the memory. At will also include some of your downloaded subjected items. Data – this will be stored through memory providing it is submitted. Memory is it there to be a reference or to go back to at any particular time. – For example, if you are needing the ‘hard drive’ with you profile of a console you will need to make sure all of your work is on the memory.

Heat sink and fan – is a small metal component which is located of the motherboard, it used to cool down the computer by using its ‘Fan’. The Heatsink and the CPU is to remove any heat or condensation.

Software means computer instructions or data. Anything that can be stored electronically is software, in contrast to storage devices and display devices which are called hardware.
The terms software and hardware are used as both nouns and adjectives. For example, you can say: "The problem lies in the software," meaning that there is a problem with the program or data, not with the computer itself. You can also say: "It's a software problem."
The distinction between software and hardware is sometimes confusing because they are so integrally linked. Clearly, when you purchase a program, you are buying software. But to buy the software, you need to buy the disk (hardware) on which the software is recorded.

Photoshop & Illustrator - these are both icons are on the desktop, these programs allow the user to paste a chosen image and the edit it in anyway, therefore making it their own image, this will them confirm that it is not copyright (CR). the reasons why people used these is because
Corel draw - This is cheaper to the other competitors, Photoshop and illustrator, and it is virtually the same as the other two from above. it allows the user to edit the picture that have been pasted in.
Unlike JPGs, GIFs, and BMP images, vector graphics are not made up of a grid of pixels. Instead, vector graphics are comprised of paths, which are defined by a start and end point, along with other points, curves, and angles along the way. A path can be a line, a square, a triangle, or a curvy shape. These paths can be used to create simple drawings or complex diagrams. Paths are even used to define the characters of specific typefaces.
Because vector-based images are not made up of a specific number of dots, they can be scaled to a larger size and not lose any image quality. If you blow up a raster graphic, it will look blocky, or "pixelated." When you blow up a vector graphic, the edges of each object within the graphic stay smooth and clean. This makes vector graphics ideal for logos, which can be small enough to appear on a business card, but can also be scaled to fill a billboard. Common types of vector graphics include Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, and EPS files. Many Flash animations also use vector graphics, since they scale better and typically take up less space than bitmap images.
What is a ‘File Format’?

A file format describes the way data is stored in a file. It defines the data structure (how the data is organized in the file) as well the type of data that the file contains. Some file formats are "open formats," meaning they are publicly available and can be used by all software developers. Other file formats are proprietary or "closed formats," meaning they can only be opened by specific applications.
There are two different ways of storing data in a file – as text or binary data. Text-based file formats, such as XML and HTML, store data as plain text, which means the file content can be viewed in a text editor. Binary files, on the other hand, can only be opened with a program that recognizes the specific file format. While some binary files can be opened in a text editor, most of the data will appear garbled and unintelligible.

J-Peg - Designed to compress color and gray scale continuous-tone images. The information that is discarded in the compression is information that the human eye cannot detect.
PNG - A raster graphics file format that supports loss less data compression.
GIF - These images are compressed, and technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality.
TIF - TIF files are also called .TIFF, which stands for “Tagged Image Format File.” scanned images in an attempt to get all companies to use one standard file format instead of multiple.
PSD - Stands for Photoshop Document, is the default format that Photoshop uses for saving data. This is a owned file that allows the personal user to work with the images’ and edit the different layers after the file has been saved.
Comparing the differences
between Photoshop & Paint
Compare the hardware components.

There are several different types of hardware and software, these are used tocreate digital graphics and
through this and the bellow 2 bubble circles I will be explaining the comparisons between the two.

Canon Scanners
1st. £65
2nd. £174

1.As the first one has been going on offer for the users they are more likely to sell as they are more than £150 cheaper than the normal prices. "#1 best seller"
2.The speed of the scanners are (7 sec for A4 color at 300 dpi) - 2nd and around 10 seconds for the 1st one.
based on the prices you would presume that the reason why the one has reduced in price so much is because it may of had some critical faults, and the reason why the other one has stayed up in price is because it has always had such a populated response from the public (buyers).
3.over all the most expensive out of the two (the 2nd one) is better because of the majority of stats are proving to be better, another example is the dsi of the film and phones are better in the 2nd. For example: the 2nd has 9600x9600 for photos and documents and it has the quality to progress onto scan films. On the other hand, the other one has 4800 x 4800 dpi which is only for scanning photos and documents.
4.finally, the cheaper option may benefit the people who don't use them as regular and they have the option to leave the device upstanding unlike the other one.

Photoshop Specification
Through this short paragraph i will be explaining the different types of specifications.
1. Photoshop - £629.53
2. Paint software - free

Are better using Photoshop instead of using paint purely because of the specification and as a result from searching i was unable to find any specification for paint. - showing its lack of popularity.
If you were to compare the two then you can do everything on Photoshop that your able to do in paint. but on the other hand here are a few example of what Photoshop allows you to do instead of paint. us 3D tools, allows adobe Photoshop camera raw plug in 7 plug in, Reveal all details with overviews of an image while still focusing on the other details set in the shadows, this also reveals and finally filters.
Content-Aware Patch - Patch images with greater control using Content-Aware Patch, the latest addition to the Content-Aware family of technologies, which allows you to choose the sample area it will use to create your patch.
Mercury Graphics Engine and 64-bit support - Count on the new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine for blazingly fast performance when editing with key tools, and take advantage of cross-platform 64-bit support to speed up imaging tasks and process very large images faster*.
Intuitive video creation - Bring Photoshop editing power to your video footage. Easily enhance any clip using the full range of familiar Photoshop tools, and create videos using an intuitive set of video tools.
New and re engineered design tools - Create superior designs fast. Get consistent formatting with type styles, use vector layers to apply strokes and add gradients to vector objects, easily create custom strokes and dashed lines, quickly search layers, and more.
Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 7 plug-in - Bring out the best in your JPEG and raw files with improved processing and an enhanced control set
Reveal every detail in the highlights of an image while still retaining rich detail in the shadows

Paint Specification
4.0 out of 5 stars Very fast scanner, 15 Jan 2014
Fast scanner. Reasonable quality photo scanning. If you dont want to "click fdiviorever" the front buttons are only good for their individual purposes. Eg 3 of them are for pdfs and if you want photos...... This is why I stopped at 4 stars. Very fast for 3 photos at a time. Allow .25" from the left and between photos and it works fine.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Scanner
I bought this scanner to replace my Canon LiDE 60, as the LiDE 210 is compatible with Windows 7. I've only done a few scans with it, but it seems excellent. I particularly like the fact that the Canon LiDE scanners work off a single USB lead, not requiring a mains plug, and that you can stand them on their side, giving them a very small footprint.

Customer Feedback
Wifi & canon easy-PhotoPrint
Apple AirPrint
4800 x 2400 dpi
As you can tell by the price of the two different printers the one on the left is a lot more expensive than the one on the right hand side.
2.The advantages are that the most expensive one of the two has longer warranty and they are only allowing refund on this model.
3. The one on the right hand side which is the cheaper of the two, is the same brand but will be more suitable for people who aren't using the printer as much as someone who is in the the likes on an office, as they are using them every day.
4. Nothing different with the makes.
5. The weight of the more expensive is heavier, 9kg, this is better because it is more durable.
6. They both are apple air print, and they both photo print.
