By Daniel K., Age 14 In web design (and in all computer graphics), there are two types of images: Raster graphics and vector graphics. The difference between the two is that while raster graphics usually work better for images, they get pixelated or blotchy if you zoom in too much. However, vector graphics use math… Continue reading SVGs
By Daniel K., Age 14 In real life, the sun and lights emit rays of light that travel in (kind of) a straight line.
