reading for Nov 14.

when i was reading this i thought a lot about how people really do see basic shapes.  we don't need all kinds of detail in order to recognize an object.

i thought of type too.  you know the thing floating around the internet that just has the first and the last letters of a word and all the other letters scrambled inside the word, but it's still legible. 
ie. grifafe  you can still recognize it as giraffe.  :)

Bitmap vs. Vector

Pros-good for photos, when scaled down, the image gains/loses pixels in order to keep quality,
Cons- when scaled up, the image becomes diluted,

Pros-easier to see sharp edges, will not lose quality because it's nothing but points and lines,
Cons-images must remain simple,

I'm going to vector my images, because they don't have a lot of detail.
