Under 3. /Jpeg / Progressive

The book states that progressive jpegs load row-by-row, like a waterfall. This is not accurate. Instead, progressive jpegs will display as a series of overlays, enabling viewers to see a low-resolution version of the image before it downloads completely. On their website, Adobe describes: "Choose Progressive JPEG to create an image that downloads progressively in a Web browser. The image displays initially at low resolution and transitions to full resolution, enabling viewers to see a version of the image while waiting for downloading to finish."

Fifth bullet point

Printed version states that L2 represents "the angle between the two lines". In fact, it represents "the length of the second arm of the protractor" (L1 is thus the length of the first arm). The angle between the two lines is displayed under A when protractor tool is used.
