Bitmapped graphics

Bitmapped graphics is images made up of lots of bits or the technical term for the bits is pixels. There are many types of bitmapped graphics such as GIF, Jpeg, BMP and PNG. When storing under types like these compression becomes involved to store it to the quality wanted/needed. There are two types of compression: lossy and lossless. Lossy makes the image lose quality when compressed whereas lossless doesn’t lose quality but this builds up more memory.
