A digital image is an
image composed of small squares (pixels) that are assigned a value depending
upon the color it is. Lighter colors are assigned larger numbers then
the darker colors.
Digital imaging uses computer-based techniques to manipulate pixels, thus
images in many ways. Digital imaging uses computer-chip sensors to convert
images from microscopes, telescopes, point-and-shoot digital cameras,
etc. into a series of numbers that computers translate into colors and
positions. With computer technology, these numbers can easily be changed,
thus altering colors, rearranging pictorial elements, or combining images
with other images.
At the ICUC we provide the tools for capturing digital images and the
means to manipulate, analyze, store and display images created via digital
for the ICUC was provided by Wheaton and by the National Science Foundation
designed and created by Christopher English '03, Danielle Kyes '05, Prof.
Geoff Collins, and Prof. Bob Morris.
