Digital Imaging

Digital imaging is the computer processing of images that are generally photographic in nature.

There are three stages in digital imaging: input, processing, and output.

Input consists of digitized images - film or photos prepared for computer input, usually by scanning, direct image capture by digital camera or a camera equipped with a scanning back, or initially generated on a computer. This results in a computer image file.

Processing can be one or more of the following:

Output is generally the post-processing recording of the manipulated image file onto visual media such as paper or film.  Output can also be the processed digital image file on recordable media such as compact disc, computer hard drive, DVD, etc.
