    What does a digital camera not need?

    • A.

      Batteries

    • B.

      Film

    • C.

      Buttons

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Film
    Explanation
    A digital camera does not need film because it captures images electronically using a digital sensor, rather than using photographic film like traditional cameras. The digital sensor converts light into an electronic signal, which is then processed and stored as digital data. This allows the camera to store a large number of images on a memory card, eliminating the need for physical film.

    Digital images are made up of tiny dots called:

    • A.

      Cells

    • B.

      Electrolytes

    • C.

      Pixels

    Correct Answer
    C. Pixels
    Explanation
    Digital images are made up of tiny dots called pixels. Pixels, short for "picture elements," are the smallest unit of information in a digital image. Each pixel represents a specific color or shade, and when combined with other pixels, they form the complete image. The resolution of an image is determined by the number of pixels it contains, with higher resolution images having more pixels and therefore more detail. Therefore, pixels are the correct answer as they are the fundamental building blocks of digital images.

    The primary function of a digital camera is to:

    • A.

      Make/recieve phone calls

    • B.

      Act as a memory card reader

    • C.

      Take pictures

    • D.

      Play music

    Correct Answer
    C. Take pictures
    Explanation
    The primary function of a digital camera is to take pictures. Unlike smartphones that can also make/receive phone calls, act as a memory card reader, and play music, the main purpose of a digital camera is to capture images. It is designed specifically for photography, offering various features like high-resolution sensors, optical zoom, and different shooting modes to ensure high-quality pictures.

    A photograph is a type of raster image.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A photograph is a type of raster image because it is composed of pixels arranged in a grid pattern. Raster images are made up of a finite number of pixels, each containing specific color information. This is in contrast to vector images, which are composed of mathematical equations and can be scaled without losing quality. Since a photograph is captured using a camera and stored as a grid of pixels, it falls under the category of raster images.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A photograph is a type of vector image.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A photograph is not a type of vector image. A photograph is a raster image, which means it is made up of a grid of pixels. Vector images, on the other hand, are made up of mathematical equations and can be scaled infinitely without losing quality.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

     What is the "rule of thirds" in photography?

    • A.

      Distracting elements in the background

    • B.

      Having three of the same subject in a photograph

    • C.

      Photograph divided into thirds, both horizontally and vertically which creates four points where the lines cross for a visual center.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Photograph divided into thirds, both horizontally and vertically which creates four points where the lines cross for a visual center.
    Explanation
    The "rule of thirds" in photography refers to dividing a photograph into thirds, both horizontally and vertically. This creates four points where the lines cross, which serve as visual centers. This composition technique helps to create balance and interest in the image by placing key elements along these lines or at the intersections, rather than in the center of the frame. It is a widely used guideline to enhance the overall composition and visual appeal of a photograph.

    Just like traditional film cameras, the small opening that allows light to pass through the lens of a digital camera is called:

    • A.

      The aperture

    • B.

      The focal point

    • C.

      The lens

    Correct Answer
    A. The aperture
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the aperture. The aperture refers to the small opening in the camera lens that allows light to pass through and reach the image sensor or film. It controls the amount of light that enters the camera, thus affecting the exposure and depth of field of the resulting image.

    What does ppi stand for?

    • A.

      Pixels per inch

    • B.

      Points per inch

    • C.

      Photograph process initiative

    Correct Answer
    A. Pixels per inch
    Explanation
    PPI stands for "Pixels per inch." It is a measurement used to describe the resolution of a digital image or display. The higher the PPI, the more pixels are packed into each inch, resulting in a sharper and more detailed image. PPI is commonly used in the context of screens, monitors, and digital photography to determine the quality and clarity of images. Points per inch refers to a measurement used in typography, while "Photograph process initiative" is not a recognized acronym or term in relation to PPI.

    What does a scanner do?

    • A.

      Converts print images to digital

    • B.

      Connects your digital camera to your computer

    • C.

      Prints digital photos

    Correct Answer
    A. Converts print images to digital
    Explanation
    A scanner is a device that converts physical print images, such as photographs or documents, into digital format. This means that it captures the image and converts it into a digital file that can be stored, edited, and shared on a computer. It does not connect a digital camera to a computer or print digital photos, but specifically focuses on converting print images to digital.

  • 11. 

    A memory card stores image until you can transfer to computer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A memory card is a storage device that is used to store data, including images. It allows you to store images until you are ready to transfer them to a computer or another device. This is done by inserting the memory card into a compatible device, such as a digital camera, and saving the images directly onto the card. Once the images are saved, you can remove the memory card from the device and transfer the images to a computer using a card reader or by connecting the device directly to the computer. Therefore, the statement "A memory card stores image until you can transfer to computer" is true.

    A card reader connects a camera to a scanner

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A card reader does not connect a camera to a scanner. A card reader is a device used to read data from memory cards, such as those used in digital cameras, and transfer it to a computer. It is not used to connect a camera directly to a scanner. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Light or dark tones, not color

    • A.

      Scanner

    • B.

      Value

    • C.

      Grayscale

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Grayscale
    Explanation
    The given answer "grayscale" is correct because it refers to an image or display that uses shades of gray to represent different levels of brightness. In grayscale, there are no colors, only different tones of black, white, and gray. This is in contrast to color images or displays that use a full spectrum of colors. Therefore, when referring to a scanner and the value it produces, it is most likely referring to the grayscale value rather than color.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. Contrast refers to the difference in brightness, color, or texture between objects in an image. It does not involve any physical movement or adjustment to bring objects into focus.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Lens → allows you to adjust tones of an image, specifically dark, middle, or light pixels

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. A lens is a transparent optical device that is used to focus or diverge light. It does not have the capability to adjust tones of an image. Adjusting tones of an image is done through image editing software or tools such as brightness, contrast, and levels adjustments.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Channel → reads/converts negative, slide, or print into digital form

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. A channel does not read/convert negative, slide, or print into digital form. A channel refers to a means of communication or transmission, such as a TV channel or a communication channel. The process of converting negative, slide, or print into digital form is typically done by a scanner or a digital imaging device, not a channel.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Levels → allows you to adjust tones of an image, specifically dark, middle, or light pixels

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because levels in image editing software allow users to adjust the tones of an image. By adjusting the dark, middle, or light pixels, users can enhance the overall contrast and brightness of the image. This tool is particularly useful for correcting exposure issues or fine-tuning the tonal range of an image.
