The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing it exactly right.

—Edward C. Simmons

Resolution is one of those concepts that have a huge impact on the quality of your images, yet most people don't understand it. Part of the reason is that the term resolution can relate to so many things (monitors, printers, scanners, digital cameras, images, and more), and with each device it might mean something slightly different. To add to the confusion there are numerous terms used to describe the resolution for each of the different devices (ppi, dpi, lpi, megapixels, and so on). But the subject is by no means beyond the grasp of someone who is committed enough to read through this chapter a few times. The rewards are smaller file sizes, higher-quality images, and significantly less frustration. Let's start off with the general concept of resolution.
