A digital image, represented in a two-dimensional digital form, can be classified by the type of electromagnetic radiation or other waves whose variable attenuation conveys the information that constitutes the image. Digital images are made of picture elements called pixels. Theoretically, pixels are organized in an ordered rectangular array. Digital imaging or digital image acquisition is the creation of photographic images, such as of a physical scene or of the interior structure of an object.
The five typical types of digital image files could be: TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and Raw Image Files. TIFF always used in photo software (such as Photoshop), as well as page layout software. And JPEG, standing for Joint Photographic Experts Group, are usually used for photographs on the web. GIF stands for Graphic Interchange Format and it is suitable for the web. PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics and it’s used almost exclusively for web images, never for print images. Last but not least, raw image files, which can’t be edited or printed yet, contain a vast amount of data that is uncompressed.
This is a world of digital image and people prefer to take shots of things, which remain and recall their memory. However, they still have the risk of losing. When it happens, Android Photo Recovery is for you. With a few steps, you can get your precious photos back.
