Raster images are stored in a computer in the form of a grid of picture elements, or pixels.
These pixels contain the image's color and brightness information.
Image editing encompasses the processes of altering images, whether they are digital photographes, traditional photochemical photographs, or illustrations.
Traditional analog image editing is known as photo retouching, using tools such as an airbrush to modify photographs, or editing illustrations with any traditional art medium.
Graphic software programs, which can be broadly grouped into vector graphics editors, raster graphics editors, and 3D modelers, are the primary tools with which a user may manipulate, enhance, and transform images.Many image editing programs are also used to render or create computer art from scratch.
