The virtual world is composed of sources, the letters and symbols generated through code. These all intertwine to form images, the content sprawled throughout sites. You give little thought to such things, however. The purpose of the Internet is to be convenient, not to spark consideration. As long as pages can be read you are content and nothing else should matter.
This is a lazy philosophy, however. There is far more to discover in your favorite sites than mere text. There is, instead, the intricate workings of bits and resolutions — both of which are essential in ensuring the comprehension of all you see. Noting how these components shape your experience will allow you to better appreciate it, and to no longer be surprised when certain visuals appear less striking than others.
The process, simply explained, is called pixilation. This is a collection of bitmaps — individual memory sources that compose specific designs and files — that has increased beyond the normal standards of imaging. As these images expand, their pixels become visible to the human eye, offering a more in-depth, but a simultaneously more blurred presentation. The elements that comprise a photograph can be viewed; and their size determines their clarity. The only way to reduce the signs of pixilation is to use spatial anti-aliasing, which sharpens the resolution and allows the bits to form a more cohesive appearance.
Too often users assume that this notion offers no relevancy for them. They believe all formats are the same and there are no changes to be made to them. This is not true, however. Pixilation determines the ease of reading content. It must be understood so individuals can combat it through anti-aliasing, which can be achieved with specialized software.
The Internet is not formed of simple text. It is instead shaped with pixels. This should be recognized as a vital part of all viewing experiences and must be noted by all.
