Graphics Software - What is graphics software?
Computer software applications that are used to display, create, and edit computer graphics. While many types of software will “support graphics”, these programs are usually limited in what they can do with graphics; for example, word processors can be used to create simple line art or to display images alongside text, while some spreadsheet and database programs will allow data to be displayed in the form of graphs and charts but neither type of software will give you the ability to edit graphics in detail.
Graphics software, however, is capable of editing graphics in a multitude of ways and includes a number of types of software, including paint programs, illustration and design programs, photo/image editors, presentation graphics software, animation software, computer aided design software, and some desktop publishing software. Graphics software can edit bitmap and/or vector graphics, and can be used to design label templates. Examples of graphics software include Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, CorelDraw, Inkscape, Microsoft Paint, and Paint.Net.Go Back to Glossary
