Interactive computer-graphics is mainly concerned with the generation and manipulation of graphic scenes in real time with human control or interaction. The potential of computer graphics in creating a picture, rearranging picture parts, modifying colors etc. is increasingly exploited to support designers and stylists in their creative activity. The “paintbrush” programs currently available make it possible to create and manipulate pictures on a screen in a way that is conceptually similar to the artist’s traditional drawing on paper. These programs incorporate image processing techniques to a small extent (for example, image enhancement or noise removal), but leave to manual intervention all manipulations concerning the shape of objects.
