The Best Directories of Free Graphic Resources

Graphic software programs, which can be broadly grouped into vector graphics editors, raster graphics editors, and 3d modelers, are the primary tools with which a user may manipulate, enhance, and transform images. Many image editing programs are also used to render or create computer art from scratch.

Many image file formats use data compression to reduce file size and save storage space. Digital compression of images may take place in the camera, or can be done in the computer with the image editor. When images are stored in JPEG format, compression has already taken place. Both cameras and computer programs allow the user to set the level of compression.

Some compression algorithms, such as those used in PNG file format, are lossless, which means no information is lost when the file is saved. The JPEG file format uses a lossy compression algorithm- The greater the compression, the more information is lost, ultimately reducing image quality or detail. JPEG uses knowledge of the way the brain and eyes perceive color to make this loss of detail less noticeable.

Free Fonts for Webmasters and Designers

These are some fonts that are common on most Windows systems. If you're going to use special font families in your Web pages you should be aware of the font families that are common to both Windows and Macintosh machines. That way, you won't be surprised by how your page looks in various situations. Changing the font family to your favorite font will make the page look great in your browser, but if your readers don't have that font, you might be surprised at what it looks like to them. Use the fancy fonts as you please, but you should always have a standard font near the end of your list, and a generic font choice last.
