What Do I Have Research and
Write About?
• You should explain each of the following in terms of
their impact on graphics or the creation of the
graphics in terms of types, ease and quality:
• Hardware:
– graphics card features; internal memory eg cache,
RAM; processors; other hardware eg digital camera
drivers and card; file storage eg CD ROM, hard drive,
flash cards, USB storage devices; input devices eg
graphics tablet, mouse, digital camera, scanner
• Output medium:
– printer; computer monitor; other eg mobile phone,
PDA, plotter
• Software:
– vector based eg CorelDRAW; bitmap eg Paintshop Pro,
Paint; photo manipulation eg Photoshop; others eg
image viewers, photo galleries, file conversion

Completing P1
• For P1, learners should describe the role of the
components of a given computer system in the
production and manipulation of graphics. Learners
could produce a series of information leaflets to
cover at least one item from each of the groupings in
the unit content.
• Create a hardware and software report. The
hardware section needs to focus on components such
as the graphics card and how their features impact
upon graphical work. The software section needs to
identify the vector and raster software applications
you would wish to use as well as other software.
Make sure all the hardware and software you
describe relate to creating graphics. The hardware
and software you need to include are mentioned
below.

Completing M1
• M1 is a comparison. Normally a comparison would consider
both good and less good points, but in this case only the
limitations are being compared. Within the remit that the
hardware and software must relate to the production of
graphics, learners can select any hardware devices and
compare the limitations of those, and then select any
software packages and compare their limitations.
• Whilst it is more appropriate for learners to select the items
themselves, the tutor can direct them to devices and
packages, or can give them a short list of appropriate
hardware and software from which to select.
• For M1 you should compare different types of storage
media (CD-ROM, hard drive, flash cards, USB Storage
Devices) and different graphical input devices (graphics
tablet, mouse, digital camera, scanner). You should also
compare different software applications.

Completing D1
• For D1, learners will research the ongoing
changes in, and additions to, output media
and the effect this has on the creation of
graphic images.
• For D1 you should create the Output Media
section of your report, evaluating the
impacts of evolving output mediums on the
design and creation of graphic images.
Research the marketplace to find current
developments in both hard and soft copy
for graphical work. You may find it useful
to find actual products used as output
media.
