In this report I am going to evaluate and discuss the impact of evolving output mediums on the design and creation of digital graphics. I am going to discuss how a range of different output methods such as large screens, printers and mobile phones develop over time whilst evaluating them against different aspects such as cost, speed and usage.
An output device is any device used to send data from a computer to another device or user. Most computer data output that is meant for humans is in the form of audio or video. Thus, most output devices used by humans are in these categories. Examples include monitors, projectors, speakers, headphones and printers. Output devices are very important because they allow people to see what they are creating via the monitor and also allow people to manipulate the picture via the mouse and even print out what they have created via the printer, without an output device none of this is possible.
Mobile phones are used every day by the majority of the population and has many uses. In regards to graphic images, it allows the user to take pictures and transfer these images to different devices such as other phones or even computers. Mobile phones have evolved over the last few years and now can do so much more to help graphic designs such as, sending images via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, text, email, or even iCloud, Pictor editors, Instagram and even face time for Apple products. Phones of today can be described as a playground for graphic image editing because they allow images to be edited to look more attractive and more appealing and fun. The downfall for to Mobile Phone in correlation to graphic imaging is that the file of phone manipulated images are very small which you have to take into consideration whilst considering graphical image editing on your phone; it may be small on a computer surface not only that if you take a picture from the computer and put it on your phone the file may be too big for the phone making it un-viewable because it cannot load due to the file size. In some cases some mobile phones such as the apple products, have taken into consideration how pictures will look on a mobile device. Therefore, to ensure the pictures on the IPhone are not pixelated they have enhanced there image display with retina display which allows us to see pictures in a sharper format.
