Digital Imaging Fundamentals

  • Alan Parkin


A digital image is a rectangular array of pixels, each pixel showing a colour. An sRGB image has colours drawn from the standard sRGB colour space, modelled as a coordinate cube. A digital image has a complete numerical representation as a width and a height in pixels, followed by a scan sequence of colour triples. This numerical representation can be created, stored, transformed, displayed, printed and transmitted by computer. The location resolution of an image is a function of its extent, and the colour resolution is a function of the diversity of its colour space.
