Understanding Monitor, Image, and Device Resolution

Remember that raster images are all about resolution. Images have a specific scanned resolution (spi, samples per inch), your monitor has a resolution (ppi, pixels per inch), and output devices such as inkjet printers (dpi, dots per inch), and high–end presses (lpi, lines per inch). While all these terms may seem a bit complicated, they're not; they simply explain how much resolution, or information is contained within the image.
