Bitmaps and Vector Graphics

Bitmaps and Vector Graphics

Have you wondered why some pictures show jaggies on the edges when they are resized larger. Or why some pictures don’t show jaggies when enlarged? Those jaggies have more to do with the type of graphics you’re resizing, and broadly speaking, there are two types of computer graphics: bitmaps and vector graphics. If you use graphics often, understanding these two formats, their differences, and how they are created is essential. To put in a nutshell, bitmap graphics get the jaggies when they are resized. And vector graphics can be resized to any extent without the pixelated jaggies.

Learn about the differences between Bitmaps and Vector Graphics.

Picture Bullets in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

July 18, 2018

Picture Bullets in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint provides several bullet styles that you can choose from, but they do look a little canned since almost every PowerPoint slide these days uses the same bullet styles! You could get rid of bullets altogether and use small sentences/paragraphs instead, or maybe you could explore picture bullets, to insert any picture as your bullet. Of course, for picture bullets to work, your picture needs to be small, no larger than a medium-sized dot. And it helps if it has transparent areas. If all this talk about the size and transparency of a picture bullet makes you curious, don't worry because we explain it all!
