Some computer screens are grayscale, rather than plainblack-and white (monochrome). On a black-and-white screen, there is only one bit of information being sent to each pixel (dot), so the pixels on the screen are either on (white) or off (black). On a greyscale monitor, anywhere from 2 to 16 bits of information are sent to each pixel, so it is possible to display gray tones in the pixels, rather than just black or white.

On a piece of photographic film, such as the kind you use to shoot photographs, one side of the film is coated with a layer of chemicals called the emulsion. This is the side that absorbs the light, and the emulsion is scratch able and dull. The non-emulsion side of film looks shinier and is more difficult to scratch. You can see the emulsion side on any negative you have hanging around.

Ray tracing is an incredibly complex method of producing shadows, reflections, and refractions in high-quality, three-dimensionally simulated computer graphics. Ray tracing calculates the brightness, the reflectivity, and the transparency level of every object in the image. And it does this backwards. That is, it traces the rays of light back from the viewer's eye to the object from which the light was bounced off from the original light source, taking into consideration along the way any other objects the light was bounced off or refracted through .
