Some Vocabulary Involving Image Effects
Cropping: Cutting out part of an image while the original image retains same file size and the cut image can be saved as a new file. This is used to remove unwanted parts and keep the pieces of the picture that you want together.
Filters: Used to apply special effects to an image that would be too difficult to create manually. Filter types can add different colors, such as a sepia filter that makes everything blue tinged or a filter to apply a stylistic old photo finish to the image in question.
Gradient: Filling an object/image with a smooth transition from one color to another color. Can be used to change a specific part of a picture or image to a different color pattern entirely.
Layers: Compiling multiple pictures or objects together into one image (layers can be turned on and off). This can be used to create a picture with multiple stacked pictures in it to create a collage or something to that effect.
Patterns and Textures: Patterns are raster graphics used to fill an object or a selection, while texture is used to create filters or fill backgrounds with a new image that pops off the page.
Rotating: Pivoting an object around it's center. Pretty self explanatory and can be used to rotate image parts around a particular area.
Transparency: Removing the background color of a raster image to make it see through which allows an image to blend in with it's background. Typically utilized to create a watermark to mark an image as your owned intellectual property and the like.
Transparency also affects Graphic Formats.
