Today, we got down into the details of the second process. This one process feeds into all the rest (except collecting, as we saw) - which makes it very important to understand. In every day use, we have to deal with files that are organised differently as reflected by their file extension (e.g. DOCX for Word documents, PDF for Acrobat documents, XLSX, PPTX, ZIP and so on). These are all geared for specific use in different systems, for different purposes, through different processes.

Here are today's tasks:
  1. Complete your notes from our class discussion.
  2. Download a photo from the internet and apply 5 different effects to it. Upload the original and its 5 variations to your section of the sandbox and make sure you describe, for each effect, what is happening to the data of the image and how it relates to the way in which the image is organised.
  3. Look up Bezier curves and write an explanation of how the data of a Bezier curve is organised.
  4. For the following methods of organising images, describe the particular system, purpose and processes that it is specifically designed for:
    • BMP
    • JPG
    • EXIF
    • RAW
    • PNG
    • SVG
