P = Poor: Noticeably Grainy (pixelated)

A = Acceptable: Obviously not a real photo, but some details are visible

G = Good: Can tell it is not a photo but most details are discernable

VG = Very Good: Can tell it is not a photo at normal distance, but good enough for many uses

E = Excellent: Difficult to tell from real photo at normal viewing distance

PQ = Photo Quality: On a photo-quality printer, the human eye should not be able to tell the difference at a normal viewing distance
