Administrator answers:

Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical equations, to represent images in computer graphics.

Vector graphics formats are complementary to raster graphics, which is the representation of images as an array of pixels, as it is typically used for the representation of photographic images.[1] There are instances when working with vector tools and formats is best practice, and instances when working with raster tools and formats is best practice. There are times when both formats come together. An understanding of the advantages and limitations of each technology and the relationship between them is most likely to result in efficient and effective use of tools.

Administrator answers:

Installing GIMP on Mac Computers
GIMP is an open source (free) image manipulation program that is similar to Adobe PhotoShop.
Installing X11 (required for GIMP)
Check to see if you have X11 installed, it would be located in Applications > Utilities >
If is not there,
For OS 10.3, download it (free) by clicking the “Download” button at Install X11.
For OS 10.4, insert the operating software DVD that came with the computer, ignore the window that opens automatically, double-click on the “Macintosh HD” icon to open the finder window, click the CD icon on the left side of the window, got to “system,” “installation,” “packages,” “X11user.pkg,”
Installing GIMP
Go to the download page:
Click “Gimp-2.2.11.dmg”
Choose a location (e.g., Minneapolis), and click “Download.”
Wait for the download to start. The dialog box “You have chosen to open…..” will pop up. Click in the circle (radio box) to the left of “Save to Disk.” Click “OK.” The compressed folder will be located in the place that you find other downloaded files (for future reference–you can designate the location in your browser options).
Double-click the folder (should be named something like “Gimp-2.2.11.dmg”). From the window that opens, drag the file named to the Applications folder on your computer.

Maria asks…

Could this hurt my new piercing?

I just got both my ears pierced about a week or so ago from today, and i was wondering if wearing an xbox turtle beach headset can cause them harm or be bad for them, for those who don’t know, a turtle beach is a headset that fully covers both of your ears.


Administrator answers:

Nope, I wore a similar headset the day after I got 4 new piercings in my ears and it was fine. I would recommend cleaning the piercings afterwards though, particularly if its an old headset and your not the only person to use it :)
