In the computer graphics rendering is the process by which data is converted into an image. Photorealistic rendering denotes images based on physical simulations. The goal of photorealistic rendering is to create images indistinguishable from photographs of real world scenes. In contrast, the new area of non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) is concerned with images that are guided by artistic processes. NPR techniques are driven by aesthetic constraints rather than physical simulations.

NPR images convey information more effectively by: omitting extraneous detail; focusing attention on relevant features; by clarifying, simplifying, and disambiguating shape; and by showing hidden features. The control of detail in an image for the purpose of enhanced communication is becoming the hallmark of NPR. Control of image detail is often combined with stylization to evoke the perception of complexity in an image without explicit representation.
