- The technical term for 8 bits of data.
The standard fundamental unit (or “chunk size”) underlying most computing systems today
measured in “megabytes”, “kilobytes”, “gigabytes”, etc.
- A type of data used for graphics or pictures.
- is data that describes other data. For example, a digital image my include metadata
that describe the size of the image, number of colors, or resolution.
- short for "picture element" it is the fundamental unit of a digital image, typically a tiny
square or dot which contains a single point of color of a larger image.
- the RGB color model uses varying intensities of (R)ed, (G)reen, and (B)lue light are added
together in to reproduce a broad array of colors.
- a data compression algorithm that allows the original data to be perfectly
reconstructed from the compressed data.
- (or irreversible compression) a data compression method that uses inexact
approximations, discarding some data to represent the content. Most commonly seen in image
formats like .jpg.
