Review answers

1Bitmap or raster images are based on a grid of pixels and are appropriate for continuous-tone images such as photographs or artwork created in painting programs. Vector graphics are made up of shapes based on mathematical expressions and are appropriate for illustrations, type, and drawings that require clear, smooth lines.
2A layer shape stores the outline of a shape in the Paths palette. You can change the outline of a shape by editing its path.
3You use the Path Selection tool () and the Direct Selection tool () to move, resize, and edit shapes. You can also modify and scale a shape or path by choosing Edit > Free Transform Path.
4No, the Type tool adds text, not vector shapes, to an image. If you want to work with the characters as vector shapes, you must create a work path from the type. A work path is a temporary path that appears in the Paths palette. Once you create a work path from a type layer, you can save and manipulate it like any other path. You cannot edit characters in the path as text. However, the original type layer remains intact and editable.
5Merging combines several layers into one to keep your file size manageable. When you’ve finalized the characteristics and positioning of a layer’s contents, you can merge that layer with one or more other layers to create partial versions of your composite image.
