Digital photos are built of many pixels. Each pixel has a unique value which represents its color. When you are looking at a digital photo your eyes and brain merge these pixels into one continuous digital photo. Each pixel has a color value that is one out of a finite number of possible colors - this number is known as color depth. Each pixel has a color value that is one out of a palette of unique colors. The number of such unique potential colors is known as color depth. Color depth is also known as bit depth or bits per pixel since a certain number of bits are used to represent a color and there is a direct correlation between the number of such bits and the number of possible unique colors. For example if a pixel color is represented by one bit - one bit per pixel or a bit depth of 1 - the pixel can have only two unique values or two unique colors - usually these colors will be black or white.
Color depth is important in two domains: the graphical input or source and the output device on which this source is displayed. Each digital photo source or other graphics sources are displayed on output devices such as computer screens and printed paper. Each source has a color depth. For example a digital photo can have a color depth of 16 bits. The source color depth depends on how it was created for example the color depth of the camera sensor used to shoot a digital photo. This color depth is independent of the output device used to display the digital photo. Each output device has a maximum color depth that it supports and can also be set to lower color depth (usually to save resources such as memory). If an output device has a higher color depth than the source the output device will not be fully utilized. If an output device has a lower color depth than the source the output device will display a lower quality version of the source.
My advice? Forget about having your child "know" certain preacademic concepts before her cousins or before your neighbors. Play with your child, notice what interests her and talk about those things. If the color of something or the number involved is important to her activity, then comment on it. If your child notices you writing and wants a paper and pencil, provide them. Give only as much help as requested. Resist the temptation to make your child form or copy certain letters before she is ready. Helping your child learn many names of things (nouns), how and why things work or happen, how things feel, how things change, how to solve problems that arise--these concepts give your child a strong foundation for language learning and for later academic learning.
Although it might seem like a strange teaching method, you can actually use coloring to teach a preschooler important lessons. One of the most basic lessons you will teach them are the names of the colors themselves. When a child is coloring help them to learn their colors by identifying the name of the color in a particular pencil or marker. In front of a group or individual, have a quiz where you ask them to mark specific colors on a blank sheet of paper. You can turn this activity into a little contest by awarding the first child who colors correctly a prize. As children start to learn to write have them write the names of the colors underneath patches of color.
In the initial ages of a child, Parents do every possible effort to make the child bloom in real manner. Coloring pages is a commonly used practice by parents at home or teachers at school to impart knowledge of the alphabets, animal, monuments, fruits, vegetables, numbers etc. Kids love coloring activities and they can even learn a lot through color & fun activities. Colors are fascinating and attract kids easily, that is why the environment of play schools or preschool sessions includes multi colors to make the kids or toddlers happy and cherish. Research shows that the child in early age learns faster than ever, so the knowledge should be impeccable that has to be imparted to kids.
Coloring can also be used as a great reward for a job well done. Most preschoolers love to color because it gives them a chance to control something and to express themselves. If you have had a particularly long lesson on numbers or letters reward the students by allowing them to color their favorite animals. Soon you will find that the children will ask to color when they have done a good job with something. Encourage the creative side of preschoolers by allowing them to color in whatever fashion they choose. Coloring gives kids a chance to express their personalities and fears. You might also encourage a budding artist by allowing for more coloring time. If a child seems to show a love for coloring support their interest. Help them to see that there is a positive link between coloring, working, and producing something beautiful.
