So, if every pixel was a different color, a 480x360 bitmap image would take up exactly 168.75 MB. I didn't even know that 172800*256*4=176947200 is 262144*675. Magic.

I may be missing something, but I can't figure out why this page has a description for the encoding of Netpbm, an image format that is both not widely used today and not used by Scratch to my knowledge. How is it relevant?

Just because it's not directly relevant to Scratch doesn't mean it doesn't always belong. Netpbm is relative to raster graphics, which are relevant to Scratch.

It doesn't even seem relevant at all to Scratch. I don't see why it's needed.

Yeah, it doesn't seem relevant nor does it explain how it could be relevant. :/

Maybe instead it could talk about how .pngs are saved?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 22:05, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
That indeed would be much more relevant but perhaps unnecessary. If that were to go anywhere, though, it would probably not be on this page because that seems more advanced and would become the focus of the page.

I'm not sure how saving .png's would be more relevant then teaching how images are stored on a computer. The netpbm section does give a basic introduction into that topic, and so I find it somewhat relative to Scratch since Scratch uses raster images quite a bit.

Scratch actually uses PNGs, whereas it doesn't use netpbm?

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I just realized that I had misread a few comments. Learning how to save .png's would be relevant.
And now that I think of it, the netpbm section is a bit irrelevant, even though it gives an intro to how images are generally stored in computers and Scratch.

In my opinion, this has almost nothing to do with Scratch. I feel like this would go on Wikipedia.

@Gatgatcode, True. I've done a bit of Googling and found out that the format is not commonly used anyways. In fact, I've gone and deleted the section. Yes Done

It seems a little out of date that the page is titled 'Raster Graphics' when in Scratch, it's bitmap. Raster could be a redirect, and Bitmap could be the main page.

No objections. Should be a more intuitive search term for users, I’m not sure why this redirect was created in the first place. The thread’s been inactive for a substantial period of time, so I’ll go ahead with the move for now - please feel free to revert the change if needed.
