Image Object (Prototype 1)
Templated Image Object (Prototype 2)
Image Storage (Prototype 3)
In this chapter, we lay the groundwork for extending our digital imaging framework.

Finally, we apply C++ constructs to specific aspects of the design by creating detailed prototypes, and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each technique.
In our test application’s image class described ...
