### For what is considered "high quality" or "print resolution", your images should be set for:

• A.

72 pixels per inch.

• B.

96 pixels per inch.

• C.

300 pixels per inch.

• D.

2,000 pixels per inch.

C. 300 pixels per inch.
Explanation
For high quality or print resolution, images should be set at 300 pixels per inch. This is because 300 pixels per inch provides a higher level of detail and clarity in the image when it is printed. Images with a lower resolution may appear pixelated or blurry when printed. Higher resolutions, such as 2,000 pixels per inch, are unnecessary and can result in larger file sizes without significant improvement in print quality.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### While Photoshop is mostly a PIXEL-based image editor, Illustrator uses point-based coordinates known as:

• A.

Vectors.

• B.

Layers.

• C.

• D.

Rasters.

A. Vectors.
Explanation
Photoshop is primarily used for editing and manipulating pixel-based images, where each individual pixel is edited or modified. On the other hand, Illustrator uses vectors, which are based on mathematical equations and points to create and edit images. Vectors allow for scalability and flexibility as they can be resized without losing quality. Therefore, the correct answer is vectors.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### The term "opacity" goes hand-in-hand with _______ since they are opposites.

• A.

Transparency.

• B.

Anti-aliasing.

• C.

Layering.

• D.

Rasterizing.

A. Transparency.
Explanation
Opacity refers to the degree of transparency or the lack of transparency in an object or substance. When something is opaque, it means it is not transparent, and therefore the opposite of opacity is transparency. In this context, the term "opacity" is paired with transparency because they are contrasting concepts.

• 9.

### What does it mean to "crop" an image?

• A.

Cut off excess parts of the image.

• B.

Remove objects or people from the image.

• C.

Change the resolution to a smaller size.

• D.

Move an image to another image.

A. Cut off excess parts of the image.
Explanation
To "crop" an image means to cut off the excess parts of the image. This process involves selecting a specific area of the image and removing everything outside of that area. By doing so, the image is resized and only the desired portion remains visible. Cropping is commonly used to improve composition, remove unwanted elements, or focus on a particular subject within the image.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Which of the following can you NOT do with Photoshop?

• A.

Restore old photographs.

• B.

Create original artwork with a brush or pen tool.

• C.

Open and edit JPG files.

• D.

Break an image down into vector for printers.

D. Break an image down into vector for printers.
Explanation
Photoshop is primarily a raster-based image editing software, which means it works with pixels. It is not designed to convert raster images into vector format, which is necessary for printing purposes. Vector images are resolution-independent and can be scaled up or down without losing quality. This functionality is typically found in software like Adobe Illustrator, which is specifically designed for creating and editing vector graphics.

### For use of an image for web (or to downsize for email) the resolution should be:

• A.

100 dpi

• B.

92 dpi

• C.

72 dpi

• D.

200 dpi

C. 72 dpi
Explanation
The resolution for using an image for web or downsizing for email should be 72 dpi. DPI stands for dots per inch and refers to the number of dots or pixels that can fit into one inch of an image. A lower DPI value means fewer pixels are used, resulting in a smaller file size and faster loading time on the web. 72 dpi is the standard resolution for digital screens, making it ideal for web and email use.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### What does dpi stand for?

• A.

Damage per increment

• B.

Dots per integer

• C.

dots per increment

• D.

Dots per inch

D. Dots per inch
Explanation
DPI stands for "dots per inch." This term is commonly used to measure the resolution or clarity of an image or print. It refers to the number of dots or pixels that can be displayed or printed per inch. A higher DPI value indicates a greater level of detail and sharpness in the image or print, while a lower DPI value results in a lower quality or less detailed output.

### "Layers" in Photoshop are...

• A.

Filters that have been applied to the image.

• B.

Separate images stacked on top of each other.

• C.

Previous versions of an image.

• D.

Color components (such as CMYK).

B. Separate images stacked on top of each other.
Explanation
In Photoshop, "layers" refer to separate images that are stacked on top of each other. Each layer can contain different elements, such as text, shapes, or images, and can be edited individually without affecting the other layers. This allows for greater flexibility and control when working on complex compositions or making adjustments to specific parts of an image. The option of stacking separate images on top of each other is a key feature of Photoshop's layer functionality.
