alignment
Bounding Box: A rectangle with
handles that appears around an
object or type and can be used to
change dimensions also called a
trans-form box. To scale something
in proportion and to retain the
correct aspect ratio holding the
shift key while dragging from one of
the corner points of the bounding

box keeps the dimensions


constrained.

PDF (portable document format): a


document format that allows for the
reading and writing of multi-page
documents or articles. Its possible to
keep the same format, layout, and fonts
of a document across any computer

Resolution: The detail of an image is
based on how many pixels (dots) are
included in 1 square inch of space. The
more pixels included in that space, the
higher the resolution. Computer
monitors use no more than 72 pixels per
inch, so going higher is pointless.
However a minimum of 300 dots per
inch is usually recommended for
printing.
