Please submit your Company''s web site to this category, if you offer 3D computer graphics software for photorealistic simulation, rendering of natural environments, animations, and modeling software. Companies that produce products such as, shaders or modeling tools are excepted for inclusion in this category.

When submitting your site for inclusion in this category use you Company name not product name.

In computers, 3-D (three-dimensional) describes an image that provides the perception of depth in a two-dimensional space.

A 3-D image creation can be viewed as a three-phase process of tessellation, geometry, and rendering.

Popular products for creating 3-D effects include Extreme 3D, LightWave 3D, Ray Dream Studio, 3D Studio MAX, Softimage 3D, and Visual Reality. The Virtual Reality Modeling Language allows the creator to specify images and the rules for their display and interaction using textual language statements.

Following these guidelines will allow us to add your site to the directory as quickly as possible.

This category is intended for animation software programs and utilities that produce or help in the manipulation, editing, or publishing of animated images.

Animation is a simulation of movements created by presenting a series of images, or frames. Animation starts with separate images and puts them together to form the illusion of continuous motion.

Thank you.

This category holds software programs that create ICC profiles, custom color palettes or convert colors to the precise RGB, CMYK or Hi-Fi colors for your intended output device.
The phrase Color Management describes a technology used to convey reliable digital color reproduction of images and documents during various designs, viewing and printing processes.
Software that demonstrates/converts and explains color values/codes in one or more formats such as hex, RGB, HSL, CMY, CMYK and YCbCr.
This category provides a directory of Companies whose primary focus is on the development and retail of Graphic Software.
Image Conversion can be achieve by using a software application that converts image file formats from one to another.
Software programs that permit one to protect images against unauthorized use.
Only general graphics software help sites, or sites which cover more than one program will be listed here. Help for a specific software product with its own category will be listed under that categories (in suitable sub-category should one exist), so do not suggest such sites here. Instead, find the most appropriate place starting from Computers: Software: Graphics: Image_Editing/.
Frequently asked questions, tutorials and other useful help relating to computer graphics software.
Image Cataloguing is a process that locates all graphics files in a specified path and enters into a database information regarding the file which some time includes location, media details, timestamp, size, and creates a 'thumbnail' of the image. In a number of programs the features include search, image export, sorting options organizing, cataloging, managing, browsing, manipulating, processing, storing, sharing, and printing.
Image Editing software are graphic programs that provide a variety of special features for altering bit-mapped images or the creation of graphic images. Image editors also enable you to create and superimpose layers. Bit-mapped graphics are often referred to as raster graphics. The other method for representing images is known as vector graphics or object-oriented graphics.
Articles, tutorials, download sites, and other content about this particular peice of software is appropriate here.
Image Manipulation is the method of improving the quality of a digitally stored image by manipulating the image with software or filters.
Mailing Lists are users groups that communicate via email and some times they share web pages.

The Mosaic Creation category is for software that makes Photo-mosaics, they are images that are formed from a series of smaller images.

The software used to make photomosaic sorts thousands of tiny images by color, density, internal shapes, and light and arranges them so that when viewed from a distance, they combine to form a single larger image.

Other names for photomosaic are image montage, mosaic creation or photo-tiled image.

Image Optimization is minimizing the size in bytes of a graphics file without degrading the quality of the image. The reduction in file size allows more images to be stored in a given amount of disk or memory space. It also reduces the time required for images to be sent over the Internet or downloaded from Web pages.

This category is intended for the texture generator or editing programs and utilities associated with the creation and manipulation of textures.

Vector graphics is the formation of digital images through a series of commands or mathematical statements that place lines and shapes in a given two-dimensional or three-dimensional space. Vector graphics, because they consist of points and objects rather than pixels on a grid, are free from the confines of pixel resolution. Unlike bitmapped images, they will always print at the highest dpi possible giving you printed output with smooth fills and crisp lines no matter what size you print it.
Image Viewers are programs that let you read and view image files in it. Some viewers may support many different formats and files, and allow you to apply transition effects.
