A digital image in computing is defined as a numeric representation of a two-dimensional image. Considering the picture resolution, if it is fixed or not, it can be vector or raster type.
Without qualifications, the term digital image usually refers to any of the pictures stored on your computer, that can be interpreted by the system.
Raster images contain a fixed number of rows and columns of pixels, while vector pictures are defined in terms of points on a Cartesian plan. A pixel is the smallest component of a photo.
