Complete the Digital Technology chapter’s “unit exercise”:
- Find an image using Google search and download it
- Change the file name of the extension from .png or .jpg to .txt
- Open the new file and observe the arrangement of alphanumeric symbols. This is code for the browser to display pixels in a frame.
- Change some of this code. Search and replace one letter or number. But don’t change too much or you might break the image!
- Change the file back to its original extension – .png or .jpg
- Open the file and observe the changes to the image when its underlying code is altered.
