    • DigitalPortfolio What is Digital? The digit is the pixel. • Every picture is made of a finite number of pixels. • Each pixel is like a bucket of color. • More buckets of color means the more detail. • Your monitor has 72 pixels per inch.
    • DigitalPortfolio Resolution. Pixels are finite. • You cannot add information (pixels) to the original picture. • Increasing size only pulls apart the original pixels.
    • DigitalPortfolio More Resolution. PPI = pixels per inch DPI = dots per inch • Printers use dots instead of pixels. • These dots are CMYK. • Common print resolutions are 150 dpi and 300 dpi.
    • DigitalPortfolio Image Capture. Point and click. • Automatic mode is good for most cameras. • Mega-Pixel refers to millions of pixels in total surface area. • 2000 x 3500 = 7 million pixels (7 mega-pixels).
