    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Why does a low-resolution image not use as much file space as a high-resolution image?

    • A.

      Low-resolution images use fewer colors.

    • B.

      Low-resolution images use fewer pixels.

    • C.

      Low-resolution images use more compression.

    • D.

      Low-resolution images cab be written to the storage device in smaller blocks, increasing efficiency.

    Correct Answer
    B. Low-resolution images use fewer pixels.
    Explanation
    Low-resolution images use fewer pixels, which means that there are fewer individual dots of color that make up the image. Each pixel requires a certain amount of file space to store its color information, so when there are fewer pixels, less file space is needed. This is why low-resolution images have smaller file sizes compared to high-resolution images, which have more pixels and therefore require more file space to store the additional color information.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    What is a pixelized, or pixelated, image?

    • A.

      An image that contains "garbage" pixels.

    • B.

      An image that has a resolution of 200 ppi or less.

    • C.

      An image that appears rough because individual pixels are large enough to be visible to the eye.

    • D.

      A printed image in which lines or streaks are visible.

    Correct Answer
    C. An image that appears rough because individual pixels are large enough to be visible to the eye.
    Explanation
    A pixelized or pixelated image refers to an image that appears rough because the individual pixels are large enough to be visible to the eye. This means that the image lacks smoothness and clarity, with the individual square-shaped pixels being easily discernible. This can happen when the image has a low resolution or when it is enlarged beyond its original size without proper scaling algorithms. The roughness and visibility of the pixels give the image a blocky and distorted appearance.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    What does the Image Size dialog box's Constrain Proportions option do?

    • A.

      Keeps the image from changing size.

    • B.

      Forces the image to keep its original proportions.

      Changes the resolution of the image.

    Correct Answer
    B. Forces the image to keep its original proportions.
    Explanation
    The Constrain Proportions option in the Image Size dialog box ensures that when you resize an image, its original proportions are maintained. This means that if you increase or decrease the width of the image, the height will automatically adjust proportionally to maintain the original shape of the image. Similarly, if you change the height, the width will adjust accordingly. This option is useful when you want to resize an image without distorting its original proportions.

    Rate this question:

      I depends on what selection tool you use.

    Correct Answer
    A. 12 pixels.
    Explanation
    The feather option in image editing software allows you to soften the edges of a selection. When the feather option is set to 6 pixels, it means that the effect will extend 6 pixels inwards from the edge of the selection and 6 pixels outwards from the edge of the selection. Therefore, the total feathered effect will be 12 pixels wide.

    Which of the following best defines the term "anti-aliased?"

    • A.

      A slight smoothing effect at the edge.

    • B.

      Non-pixelated.

    • C.

      High resolution.

    • D.

      A crisp, rectangular edge.

    Correct Answer
    A. A slight smoothing effect at the edge.
    Explanation
    The term "anti-aliased" refers to a slight smoothing effect at the edge. This means that when rendering graphics or text, the jagged appearance of diagonal or curved lines is reduced by blending the colors of the pixels along the edges. This technique helps to create a more visually pleasing and realistic image by reducing the pixelation or stair-step effect that can occur without anti-aliasing.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Which selection tool does not have an Anti-alias option?

    • A.

      The Lasso Tool.

    • B.

    • D.

      The Rectangular Marquee Tool.

    Correct Answer
    D. The Rectangular Marquee Tool.
    Explanation
    The Rectangular Marquee Tool does not have an Anti-alias option. Anti-aliasing is a technique used to smooth the edges of a selection to make it appear more natural and less jagged. The other three selection tools mentioned in the options, namely the Lasso Tool, the Polygonal Lasso Tool, and the Elliptical Marquee Tool, all have an Anti-alias option available, allowing users to create smoother and more precise selections.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Press [Ctrl] and click the layer thumbnail in the Layers palette.
    Explanation
    To place a selection border around the contents of a layer, you can press [Ctrl] and click the layer thumbnail in the Layers palette. This action will create a selection based on the shape of the layer, allowing you to manipulate or apply effects to the contents within that selection. This method is commonly used in Photoshop to isolate specific parts of an image or layer for editing purposes.

    For the layer to appear "in front" of all other layers in your file, where should it be listed (or stacked) in the Layers palette?

    • A.

      At the bottom of the list.

    • B.

      At the top of the list.

    • C.

      It does not matter, as long as it is the only active layer.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. At the top of the list.
    Explanation
    When layers are listed in the Layers palette, the top layer is the one that appears "in front" of all the other layers. This means that any content or effects on the top layer will be visible and may cover up content on the layers below it. Therefore, to make a layer appear "in front" of all other layers in the file, it should be listed or stacked at the top of the Layers palette.

    • A.

      At the bottom.

    • B.

      At the top.

    • C.

      Just below the layer that was previously active.

    • D.

      Just above the layer that was previously active.

    Correct Answer
    D. Just above the layer that was previously active.
    Explanation
    When a new layer is created, it is listed or stacked just above the layer that was previously active in the layers palette. This means that the new layer will appear directly above the previously active layer in the layer hierarchy.

    Which of the following does not happen when an image is flattened?

    • A.

      The number of colors in the image is reduced.

    • B.

      All layers are merged.

    • C.

      The file size is reduced.

    • D.

      The image size remains the same.

    Correct Answer
    A. The number of colors in the image is reduced.
    Explanation
    When an image is flattened, all layers are merged into one, which means that any adjustments or edits made on individual layers are permanently applied to the image. Additionally, the file size is reduced because all the layer information is discarded, resulting in a smaller file. However, the number of colors in the image is not affected by flattening. The reduction in colors typically occurs when an image is converted to a different color mode or when it is compressed.

    Which of the following formats does not save layers?

    • A.

      JPEG

    • B.

      PSD

    • C.

      TIFF

    • D.

      PDF

    Correct Answer
    A. JPEG
    Explanation
    JPEG format does not save layers. Unlike PSD (Photoshop Document), TIFF (Tagged Image File Format), and PDF (Portable Document Format), JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a lossy compression format that does not support layers. When saving an image in JPEG format, all layers are flattened into a single merged image. This format is commonly used for sharing images online or for displaying photographs, where smaller file sizes are preferred over the ability to edit individual layers.

    B. A vector graphic.
    Explanation
    A vector graphic is not made up of individual pixels. Unlike bitmap or raster graphics, which are composed of pixels, a vector graphic is created using mathematical equations to define lines, shapes, and colors. This allows vector graphics to be scaled to any size without losing quality or becoming pixelated.

    How are the type mask tools different from the other two type tools?

    • A.

      They create vertical text instead of horizontal text.

    • B.

      Instead of creating text, they create selections that look like text.

    • C.

      They create smaller font sizes.

    • D.

      They can only create decorative font styles.

    Correct Answer
    B. Instead of creating text, they create selections that look like text.
    Explanation
    The type mask tools are different from the other two type tools because they do not actually create text. Instead, they create selections that mimic the appearance of text. This means that the type mask tools allow you to create selections in the shape of letters or words, which can then be filled or stroked with color or used for various other editing purposes. Unlike the other type tools, they do not generate actual editable text layers.

    What setting on the Character palette controls the spacing between two characters?

    • A.

      Kerning.

    • B.

      Tracking.

    • C.

      Justification.

    • D.

      Leading.

    Correct Answer
    A. Kerning.
    Explanation
    Kerning is the setting on the Character palette that controls the spacing between two characters. Kerning is the adjustment of space between individual letter pairs to improve the visual appearance of the text. It allows for fine-tuning the spacing between specific characters to achieve better readability and aesthetics. Tracking, on the other hand, refers to the overall spacing between all characters in a block of text. Justification is the alignment of text along the left and right margins, while leading is the vertical spacing between lines of text.

    What does the term "rasterize" mean?

    • A.

      To create a vector graphic.

    • B.

      To convert vector graphics into layers.

    • C.

      To convert vector graphics into pixel-based graphics.

    • D.

      To apply compression to an image.

    Correct Answer
    C. To convert vector graphics into pixel-based graphics.
    Explanation
    The term "rasterize" refers to the process of converting vector graphics, which are made up of mathematical equations and can be scaled infinitely without losing quality, into pixel-based graphics, also known as raster images. Raster images are made up of a grid of pixels and have a fixed resolution, which means they can lose quality when scaled up. Rasterizing allows vector graphics to be displayed or printed at a specific size and resolution.
