  • Image scaling
    In computer graphics and digital imaging, scaling refers to the resizing of a digital image.
  • Visualization (graphics)
    Visualization or visualisation (see spelling differences) is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message.
  • Framebuffer
    A framebuffer (frame buffer, or sometimes framestore) is a portion of RAM containing a bitmap that is used to refresh a video display from a memory buffer containing a complete frame of data.
  • Turtle graphics
    Turtle graphics is a term in computer graphics vector graphics using a relative cursor (the "turtle") upon a Cartesian plane.
  • Color histogram
    In image processing and photography, a color histogram is a representation of the distribution of colors in an image.

  • SIGGRAPH
    SIGGRAPH (short for Special Interest Group on Computer GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques) is the name of the annual conference on computer graphics (CG) convened by the ACM SIGGRAPH organization.
  • Digital art
    Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process.
  • Thumbnail
    Thumbnails are reduced-size versions of pictures or videos, used to help in recognizing and organizing them, serving the same role for images as a normal text index does for words.
  • Computer-generated imagery
    Computer-generated imagery (CGI) is the application of computer graphics to create or contribute to images in art, printed media, video games, films, television programs, shorts, commercials, videos, and simulators.
  • Ray tracing (graphics)
    In computer graphics, ray tracing is a technique for generating an image by tracing the path of light through pixels in an image plane and simulating the effects of its encounters with virtual objects.
  • Visual computing
    Visual computing is a generic term for all computer science disciplines handling with images and 3D models, i.
  • Terrain rendering
    Terrain rendering covers a variety of methods of depicting real-world or imaginary world surfaces.
  • Video overlay
    Video overlay is any technique used to display a video window on a computer display while bypassing the chain of CPU to graphics card to computer monitor.
  • Computer graphics (computer science)
    Computer graphics is a sub-field of computer science which studies methods for digitally synthesizing and manipulating visual content.
  • Remograph
    Remograph AB is a privately held company providing products and services for the computer graphics, visual simulation and 3D modeling industries.
  • Skipper (computer software)
    Skipper is a visualization tool and code/schema generator for PHP ORM frameworks like Doctrine2, Doctrine, Propel, and CakePHP, which are used to create database abstraction layer.

    Linux color management has the same goal as the color management systems (CMS) for other operating systems: to achieve the best possible color reproduction throughout an imaging workflow from its source (camera, video, scanner, etc.), through imaging software (CinePaint, Digikam, GIMP, Krita, Scribus, etc.), and finally onto an output medium (monitor, video projector, printer, etc.).
  • Immediate mode (computer graphics)
    Immediate mode rendering is a style for application programming interfaces of graphics libraries, in which client calls directly cause rendering of graphics objects to the display, or in which the data to describe rendering primitives is inserted frame by frame directly into a command list (in the case of immediate mode primitive rendering), without the use of extensive indirection to retained resources.
