Images on the Web

When you’re talking about images on the Web (and in computing in general), what you’re really talking about is a particular type of computer file. Such files can be any sort of visual element—a drawing, something placed on a digital scanner, a photo from a digital camera, even an image of text created in a graphics application—but that element is always in a particular file format.

This means that a text editor like Windows Notepad or Mac’s SimpleText won’t be able to read an image properly. Instead, you’d need to use an image-browsing application, an image-editing application, or a Web browser. Ultimately, it’s the file format that differentiates the image document from a text document and, by extension, from an HTML document.
