Background Info In Mathematica, it's only possible to texture map a sphere through the use of SphericalPlot3D or ...
I am currently teaching some students about the "point at infinity", and how it allows us to treat circles and lines as "the same", etc. I would like to kind of show this happening with a series of ...
The documentation for Texture states that "other filled objects" can be texturized: Texture[obj] is a graphics directive ...
Is it possible to use a background image in a polygon without rasterizing the polygon? I tried with textures, but they seem to be viable only for simple polygons. I want to put a flag as the ...

Why is the exported graphics eps file so dark? It looks much lighter (and better) as the Mathematica output appearing the notebook. After running ...
How to get sharp pixel boundaries with Texture? I'd like to have only black/white in the example below, no gray. ...
