These are the programs that help us in presenting multiple kinds of media, including sounds from different sources, graphic display as well as written texts. Majority of these Multimedia programs causes a clear interaction with their user to gain attention.
Pages of a page are one of the multimedia that causes interaction with the user. This is because they are a combination of different media including sounds, graphics and even texts. All computers perform their operations with all the kinds of media of which art is one of them and this is only possible if the resources of multimedia are stored using files that are digitized with much storage space.
A solution to getting sufficient storage space was found by the use of a software or program containing an algorithm compress or decompress referred to as codec. That uses two compression approaches known as lossy and lossless compression. The latter compression technique compresses the original file so that it allows storage again on decompression. This type of compression in multimedia programs processes the original file by permanently removing some and the loss is not easily noticed. In lossy method, information is eliminated so that multimedia users are unable to perceive that.
There are a number of multimedia programs including, image editors, paint programs, video editors, drawing programs and many more.
This is a multimedia programs for creating programs that are raster also referred to as bitmapped graphic a combination of dots which are very tiny, each dot has a measurement of a single pixel on a display of a computer. Editing Images resulting from a bitmap are quite difficult. Zooming of the picture is required and each pixel then edited. This is a very cumbersome process and therefore painting programs which are professional involving painters of fractal design, Microsoft paint as well as paint.NET.
Image editors is another multimedia program which have been improved from painting programs designed to edit as well as transform complex images which are bitmapped like photographs. These kinds of programs make use of automated algorithms to process the images and also adding different effects on photographs as well as combining together images which are photographic. The universally known program for editing programs is the Adobe Photoshop, that many professionals use in their studios but beginners are advised to use Adobe Photo Deluxe.
This is another multimedia program for creating vector graphics where objects are stored in a mathematical description which is quite complex. This is for enabling individual vector graphic for resizing as well as editing individually with no distortion of edges.
Drawing programs which are used for professional purposes are usually Adobe illustrator as well as Macromedia Freehand. Instructions are output for saving files in a language which is postscript and page description language abbreviated as (PDL) which is automated. It gives a description of images which includes fonts as well as graphics.
3-D Rendering programs
These are multimedia programs for adding three-sided effects graphic objects of a computer. This leads to results which turn out to be real which rotate in any direction achieving the desired result of the artists. A method referred to as ray tracing improves this by adding intensity of the color of the object. This allows light to fall onto the object.
Another kind of multimedia is the video editors, which are used for modification of digitized videos which are produced by a camera.
They save images in the form of MPEG (Moving pictures Extended Group).
