Uhm... it's interesting that by proposing a change to hide nasty jargon
("raster image") from users, you keep putting it in the description.
How about instead to keep the tags as they are, but just improve the
Description: Pictures made of dots, such as photos and scans
Description: Pictures made of lines, such as graphs or most clipart
if we are to change the tags instead, I'd do it to have some grouping:
Description: Images made of dots, such as photos and scans
Description: Images made of lines, such as graphs or most clipart
Do you like it like this?
