Video Terms Defined

1.      px or pixels A pixel is represented by a dot or square on a computer display. The more pixels, the higher quality the image and the higher the file size.
Cameras are often referred to as having a certain number of Mega pixels. Mega pixels are equivalent to l Million pixels.
2.      MP4 MP4 is an international standard for audio-visual coding. "MP4" is a container for the code that makes up the video. It works with most online platforms including Gabbart sites; however, not all .mp4 files work. Why is this? Read below about codecs.
3.      H.264 Codec A codec is the way that your video is coded. Not all codecs can be read by online video platforms. H.264 is a very popular flavor of the M PEG-4 codec. This codec is widely supported on most platforms.

Photo Terms Defined

4.      JPEG A very popular photo file format that works with most online media hosting platforms. It does not honor transparency and will always appear opaque.
5.      PNG Another popular file format that is widely accepted and tends to have higher file sizes than JPEG. This format can display transparency on Gabbart sites.
6. Bleed Extra space that is added to the edge of a document. It is most often used in prints.
7.      Image Ratio An aspect ratio is a proportional relationship between the image's width and height, essentially it describes the image's shape
8. DPI or Dots Per Inch DPI is another way to set up your resolution in design software. In short, it means that there are X number of dots (or pixels) per inch. So, if you had a 4 by 5-inch document at 750 DPI, the document would be 600 dots wide and 750 dots tall.
