Lecture 2: Digital Drawing (18)

Professor Ng mentioned how there are double the green pixels. This is because our eyes are most sensitive to green, probably because when we were hunters and gatherers we looked at plants the most.


While there are more green pixels, the red and blue pixels seem to be larger. Is this difference in size just a matter of perception, or are green pixels made slightly smaller to compensate for their increase in representation slightly?


@briana-jin-zhang @KaiAmelung Some displays render red/blue color information at a lower resolution. Here is a good discussion about this: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/124082/how-large-is-one-pixel-for-s5-amoled-display
