A brief introduction explaining the Pixel
Have you ever heard someone say, "look twice and you may see something different?" Well sometimes in art, if you look from a distance a picture may look clearer than it does up-close. In digital art imagine one color (blue) being replicated two hundred million times on a square. If you look at the picture from far away it would look like a blue square. If you come up close it would look like a bunch of tiny dots forming a square. In digital media those little colors forming a picture are called pixels. The variations of light in regards to pixels depends on the type of monitor. You have LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or LED (Light Emitting Diode), each type varying in specifications and picture quality. To introduce the pixel you would have to emit it through one of these types of monitors. To sum it up you cannot have one without the other. This is a brief introduction explaining the pixel.
