Picture This

If you think the graphics features on the Macintosh are just for artists and designers, you are wrong. From the Finder's icons to a spreadsheet's charts to a word processor's paragraph borders, the Macintosh lives and breathes graphics that you use and create. Even if you can't draw a straight line, your computer can draw one for you. If you have a scanner, you can use it to convert almost any printed copy into a digitized computer image. You can buy prepackaged images, called clip art, or even have your photographs developed onto a compact disc that can be read by CD-ROM drives.

This chapter deals with graphics-related issues and problems that are likely to confront even the most casual of users; for better or for worse, it is not designed to meet the specialized needs of graphics professionals. As in the previous chapter on text problems, I begin this chapter with some basics about how graphics are created, stored, displayed, and printed. I then shift to specific solutions for a selection of common problems.
