Graphic/Image Data Structures

A digital image consists of many picture elements, termed pixels. The number of pixels that compose a monitor image determine the quality of the image (resolution). Higher resolution always yields better quality.

A bit-map representation stores the graphic/image data in the same manner that the computer monitor contents are stored in video memory.
