800 by 600 pixels with 32-bit color. Your other options are to use a normal film camera and then either scan the resulting photos or send the film to a shop that will digitize the photos for you when they're developed. These shops are quite common, and the extra step of digitization of your developed film is often a no-cost "loss-leader" that the shops use to attract business. Scanners are also low-cost items. The minimum specification for a scanner that you need for use in game development.

Can click and drag to resize the crop area. There is also a round handle in the geometric center of the crop area—click and drag it to move the entire crop area. When you are satisfied with your selected area, double-click the image to cause Figure 11.5 A photograph that needs to the actual cropping operation to take place. be cropped. Figure 11.7 shows the result of merely cropping the image to include all portions of the wood without first altering the orientation of the wood. It.

The user when modifying models. It does not have Cut, Copy, or Paste but does offer com- mands in a similar vein for duplicating, hiding, and selecting objects. See Table 13.4 for more detail. Vertex You can perform a number of operations on vertices in a model. They are available through the Vertex menu (see Figure 13.13). In most cases you will need to ensure that you've selected only vertices in a model or at least have the selection mode set to Vertex. See Table 13.5 for more detail.
