Images

How many different types of images can you think of?? What’s the difference between them? What do the file names mean???

Today you need to identify 5 different types of images. What are they called and for what purposes are they used?

On your Weebly set up a page that includes your explanations and an example of each image (note it’s file size).

We are going to experiment with the image below.

Right click and save this image.
