Magnifying an image allows the user to either increase or decrease the size of the image, making it appear larger or smaller on the screen. This zooming functionality is commonly used in image editing software or when viewing images on a computer or mobile device. However, magnifying an image does not change the canvas size or the actual dimensions of the image itself.

    ______ is the most common mode for working with color images in Photoshop.

    • A.

      RGB

    • B.

      CMYK

    • C.

      Black and White

    Correct Answer
    A. RGB
    Explanation
    RGB is the most common mode for working with color images in Photoshop because it represents colors using red, green, and blue channels. This mode is widely used in digital devices and screens, as it can produce a wide range of colors by combining different intensities of these three primary colors. RGB is ideal for editing and displaying images on electronic devices, such as computers, smartphones, and televisions. It allows for precise control over color adjustments and ensures accurate representation of colors in digital formats.

    Rate this question:

    If you remove the color of an image, the color mode is ________.

    • A.

      RGB

    • B.

      Black and White

    • C.

      CMYK

    • D.

      Grayscale

    Correct Answer
    D. Grayscale
    Explanation
    When you remove the color of an image, the color mode becomes grayscale. Grayscale is a color mode that uses shades of gray ranging from black to white to represent the different tones in an image. It does not contain any color information, only brightness values. This is different from RGB, which represents colors using combinations of red, green, and blue, and CMYK, which is used for printing and represents colors using combinations of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Black and White is not a color mode but rather a term used to describe images that only contain pure black and pure white pixels.
