Qualifications - An Overview

Dots per inch (dpi)

The resolution of a computer monitor, scanner or printer. The more dots that are placed per inch, the higher the image quality, providing, of course, the image is sharp in the first place. The typical resolution of a computer monitor is 72dpi for a Mac and 96dpi for a PC. Entry-level digital printers lay around 600 dots per inch while photo quality printers are 1200dpi or higher. Scanners range from 300dpi to around 4000dpi.
