Resolution in Digital Photos

Part of the Digital Photography For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The number of pixels (picture elements) in your digital photos is managed by resolution. If you don't have enough pixels per inch (ppi) in your images, they will appear blurry. Here is the minimum pixel count your need for quality photos:

Print Size Pixel Count Megapixels
4 x 6 800 x 1200 1
5 x 7 1000 x 1400 1.5
8 x 10 1600 x 2000 3
11 x 14 2200 x 2800 6

*Based on 200 ppi; 1 megapixel = 1 million pixels
