Website Graphics Tools Question

Paul asks…

What is the difference between computer science, computer engineering, and software engineering majors?

Also, if you could, can you tell me what courses i would have to take in college. If you find any helpful website, just post that and i will read it so you don’t have to type a ton. Thank you in advance.

scottparat answers:

First, understand the difference between science and engineering.

Computer science is the study of computing from a scientific and mathematical approach. It’s composed of theoretical computer science (the study of algorithms, data structures, formal methods, concurrent, parallel and distributed systems, etc) and applied computer science (including cryptography, computer architecture, computer graphics, information science, artificial intelligence, etc)

Computer engineering is a discipline that combines elements from electrical engineering and computer science. Computer engineers develop computer systems, dealing with hardware components such as microcontrollers, integrated circuits and processors, and also writing software for such circuits.

Software engineering is the application of engineering principles to software development. It involves analysis, design, construction, testing, maintenance, configuration, development management, life cycle process, tools and methods, and quality assurance.

How do you get rid of the white background behind an image?

I’m trying to make a website and I don’t want the white background square behind my image. I just want the actual colored part of the image and that’s it.

scottparat answers:

If it’s a jpg image it can have any color background. If it was a transparent gif image that was saved as a jpg by mistake, then it will have a white background by default. Without a link to the image, it’s hard to tell which way to give you instructions.

The white background can be removed by any good graphics editor like using the Magic Wand and Tolerance tools. It must then be saved as a gif or png image depending on color quality needed to maintain any background transparency.
