Graphics is an art of drawing pictures on computer screens with the help of programming. It involves computations, creation, and manipulation of data.

The basic idea behind graphics and animation is to play back the recorded images at the rates fast enough to fool the human eye into interpreting them as continuous motion. Animation can make a series of dead images come alive.

Animation can be used in many areas like entertainment, computer aided-design, scientific visualization, training, education, e-commerce, and computer art.
