If there were a contest of complicated subjects, I’d say that Image size and Resolution of pictures would certainly win one of the first prizes .
Since the beginning of the digital photography, many new words and abbreviations have populated our daily lives. File size / Pixel dimensions / Monitor resolution /Printed image resolution / Mega pixel/ Mega bytes /Kilobytes / Dots per inch… And there are many more. You’ve certainly met them.
As I started building a website for selling my own photos, I realised that it was necessary to understand at least part of that technical jungle of terms. Because, among many reasons, I needed to insert correct informations about the products on my shop page.
I believe that those among you who also need to know more about the technicalities of digital photography have done the same as I did : searched in the Internet and maybe also in books. Well, I ‘ve found that most of the articles are written by people who either don’t understand the subject or are unable to explain it clearly. In the end I’ve usually become more confused than before.
After much searching in the Internet, I’ve found an article that really explains the subject and I wanted to share it with you. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/image-size-resolution.html
It has to be read carefully. But it works !!!
Feel free to leave your comments. I’d really appreciate.
