The academic course "Raster Graphics" introduces to students some issues of computer graphics related to the making and editing of raster images. Special attention is paid to the application of computer raster images in architecture.
Students are introduced to main features of raster images: resolution, color models, file formats. They learn how to create raster images by using software products that have been learned before, like CAD and BIM software, as well as through software processing raster graphics. Terms like: channels, layers, masks shall be worked out on, as the immediate application of images (plans, drawings, photographs, photorealistic 3d images) being part of the architectural design shall be shown. Students learn techniques for using various software tools: vector drawing lines, selecting, cropping, color and hue adjustments, filtering.
The course assignment is an essential means to testing and evaluating students knowledge, as well as their practical skills. Course assignment is to be done for a limited time (within two academic hours) under the same conditions for all students, and thereupon students are assessed.
