A Pixel Transfer operation is the act of taking pixel data from an unformatted memory buffer and copying it in OpenGL-owned storage governed by an image format. Or vice-versa: copying pixel data from image format-based storage to unformatted memory. There are a number of functions that affect how pixel transfer operation is handled; many of these relate to how the information in the memory buffer is to be interpreted.
