  • Most of us think of pictures or images in terms of print size. You order a 4x6 or 5x7 of something. That’s in inches. However, when talking about digital images, we also refer to them in terms of PIXEL size. In this example, Bailey’s picture is 2048 pixels by 1536 pixels but it’s also proportionate to a 5x7 print if I wanted to make a print of this image. FPS Summer Academy Kafka - Digital Images
