Abstract:

  • ABSTRACT

    Computer graphics have thusfar been difficult to distribute in any quantity, due to the fact that graphics files require considerately more digital storage space than other datatypes. CD ROMs, which are optical discs, and identical to the better known music CDs, now represent the newest storage technology for personal computers. Since one such ‘compact disc’ can hold the equivalent of more than 600 800K floppy disks, and weighs less than one single one of those 3.5 inch floppies, it is a very attractive distribution medium for large volumes of digital art.
