introduction3.1 Computer Sources

 

flowerDigital scanners and cameras and smartphones are three commonplace sources of digital graphics. They are particularly useful for generating primary sources for digital graphics, though scanners are often used to record secondary sources too.

Graphics pads are a more specialized type of image capture or sourcing device. They allow you to make original digital drawings on a pressure-sensitive pad with a stylus rather than a mouse and are basic tools for digital designers, photographers and graphic artists.

You can also obtain digital graphics from the Internet, from CD-ROM or DVD photo-libraries, and from clip art libraries. These are almost always secondary sources and will be subject to copyright terms.
