  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. A message - paid for by a company or organization - used to persuade consumers to purchase a particular product or service

2. One 0 or 1 of binary code

3. The exact center of the page.

4. Any form of communication used to inform - persuade - or remind a consumer about a product or service.

5. A file format for storing images - including photographs and line art that is now owned by Adobe Systems

6. A file format typically found on higher-end digital cameras; the cameras performs no enhancement processing. This format maintains the best picture quality - but because it's proprietary format - not all images viewers can display it.

7. A device that captures a copy of a 2-D object so it can be brought into the computer

8. Design is typically off-center or created with an odd or mismatched number of disparate elements

9. This affects the highlights - shadows - and midtones of an image.

10. A device that lets software work with the hardware on a computer. Windows 95-XP - DOS - Windows NT - Mac OS7 are examples

11. This type of software or image allows the user to modify individual pixels

12. Rule that states that a page that is designed in thirds is more appealing to the eye than other designs

13. An image or file that is totally composed of pixels. It is useful for photos or complex imagery that would be difficult to create as vector art

14. Duplicates an area of an image by setting a target point in one location - and painting in another location.

15. Design in which eye moves from left to right - down to the lower left and to the right again

16. This principle occurs when two elements are different and The greater the difference the greater the principle

17. An image/line/shape made only in black - it has no gray. Bitmap mode only contains black and white pixels.

18. The measure of darkness and lightness within a color

19. Converting to binary code ( i.e. video - voice - scanning)

20. 8 bits= byte. Measurement unit of storage space on the computer

21. paper orientation that is vertical

22. The size of each element in relationship to the whole piece

23. To make a file small so it uses less storage space

24. Causes lines or objects to "jump" to a predetermined location

25. It also includes data compression - but because it is limited to 256 colors - it is more effective for scanned images such as illustrations rather than color photos.

26. Visual path created by arrangements of elements within a page design

27. Adding white to a hue

28. A type of creative thinking in which one generates new solutions to problems

29. Allows the operator to change locations or formats of a document while saving

30. Changing the total number of pixels in an image.

31. The area slightly above and to the right of the geometric center

32. Uniformly spaced lines.

33. The use of many shades of gray to represent an image.

34. CADD line made with a series of dashes representing an unseen surface

35. The smallest discrete component of an image or picture on a CRT screen (usually a colored dot)

36. Using a computer to combine text - images - and design principles to communicate a message

37. Paper orientation that is horizontal

38. A compressed image file format.

39. Radial symmetry is the regular arrangement of material around a central axis

40. Unit of measurement. 72 points= 1"

41. The extent to which something blocks light. You can change the opacity of layers - filters - and effects so that more (or less) of the underlying image shows through.

42. Stylized or simplified versions of natural shapes

43. A feature that hides specific areas so that you can work on the part of the image that is not masked.

44. A file format developed by Adobe Systems to allow for display and printing of formatted documents across platforms and systems. PDF files can be read on any system equipped with the Acrobat Reader software.

45. To pick or choose something to work with on the screen. Usually an arrow or box in the tools

46. An image or file that that is calculated and stored according to mathematical formulas rather than pixels - resulting in a smaller file size and the ability to resize the image without a loss in quality

47. Temporary storage place for all or part of a project. Select and copy to place an item on the clipboard. Use paste to place and item from the clipboard to the work area. The clipboard only holds one item.

48. A type of graphics in which the image is created using a series of pixels.

49. Closeness creates a bond between people and between elements on a page

50. Imaginary lines dividing the image into thirds both horizontally and vertically. You place important elements of your composition where these lines intersect.
