Spritify Terminology

Sprite - One image that contains multiple graphics and is often used to display animations. Sprites have advantages as they only require one http request to access the image and then can then be used to display multiple graphics. Sprites are often used in web design to decrease load times for web pages.

State - A row of graphics within a sprite that represent one direction (i.e. the up state).

Frame - One graphic within a sprite image.
