The end result on screen is one pixel of a specific hue, saturation, and brightness. indb 38 4/4/16 10:47 AM The Basics of Computer Graphic Technology We will look at image size, too. This topic is pretty straightforward, and we will talk about height and width, but knowing how big to make your images involves a bit of knowledge about the technology used, the method in which the game world is built, and how the texture will be used in that world. A texture that is huge but on a small sign that the player will never go near is a waste of texture memory.

Upper right: Restricting the players’ ability to move around the texture can alleviate some of the problem. Lower left: Adding actual geometry, if possible, for the parts of the texture that cause the overt depth is the best solution (this method uses less texture memory but more polygons). Finally, lower right: Adding the actual geometry into the recess is an option that looks pretty interesting and actually allows for a reduction of geometry.
