Photography  Resizing  Resolving power

Written by: Digital Photography
Resolution is simply the measurement of a pixel plane and is used for measuring monitors, digital photo sensors, and just about anything you'd put on a monitor or photo sensor such as web pages, photographs, and windows.

Resolution Charts at dpreview.com: Horizontal and Vertical LPH
We measure resolution using the widely accepted PIMA/ISO 12233 camera resolution test chart.

The camera's light sensitive CCD converts the scene into a grid of pixels that make up a digital photograph. The resolution is the total number of pixels in the photo, for example, one million or 350,000.

Resolution Stitching for Super-High-Res Photos
Ever wanted to boost the resolution offered by your camera? In this video, we show you the camera settings and post-processing stitching techniques for shooting and producing "super resolution" images using a standard consumer Digital SLR.

As new year is meant to be a time for new beginnings, ~s and making positive decisions, it's time to look at what you want to accomplish photographically in 2013 and now while the weather is awful, it's a good time to do some planning.

Techniques Glossary ~
The camera's light sensitive CCD converts the scene into a grid of pixels that make up a digital photograph. The ~ is the total number of pixels in the photo, for example, one million or 350,000.

Everyone is likely to be familiar with the concept of image ~, but unfortunately, too much emphasis is often placed on this single metric.

~ And The Eye
My good friend and colleague, the late Bruce Fraser, wrote about human visual acuity in his Real World Image Sharpening book (which I've taken over as coauthor for him).

~ - How Much is Enough?
Few aspects of digital photography causes as much debate as the importance of ~ or the amount of "megapixels" a camera has.

~ and noise have almost nothing to do with real image quality, unless you look at three-foot (1m) wide images from a few inches away. The details of this test only show the finest details, not the much more important color and overall look of these images.

Image ~
Unlike conventional photographs where we refer to a 5 x 7-inch or 8 x 10-inch print, the overall size of a digital image is measured
in pixels. They are grouped in a matrix of coloured dots. The density of this matrix determines the amount of detail the image can show.

Super-~ in Non-Linear Optical Lithography
IC circuits are formed by projecting reduced circuit pattern images. The latest optical lithography instrument can be used to form lines of less than 100nm*1 width with ArF excimer laser*2 illumination.

Which ~ is best for photography?
The best ~ to use really depends on what you intend to do with the photo. In theory, there’s not strict correlation between the ~ you shoot with and the size of your prints.

Outdoor ~ - Canon IXUS 870IS / SD 880IS vs Panasonic FX35 vs Sony T77 ...

High ~ digital photography is simpler than ever with the new PENTAX Optio60 digital camera. An excellent choice for digital newcomers, the PENTAX Optio60 offers 6.0 megapixel ~ and a 3X zoom lens in a compact, lightweight, and stylish design.

Lower ~s such as 640 x 480 are perfect for Web publishing, e-mail attachments, small prints, or images in documents and presentations. For these uses, higher ~s just increase file sizes without significantly improving the images.

One of the most common photography-related New Year's ~s we hear is simply "to shoot more." It's a ~ with its heart in the right place, but simply increasing the number of frames you produce this year won't necessarily make you a better photographer.

new year ~s
photography ~s
New Year ~s are an age old tradition. There are things that many photographers should always be mindful of no matter what time of year it is.

New Years ~s for Photographers
Welcome to 2006. I know it really doesn't seem like another year could have gone by, but it has. As a new wrinkle on an old tradition, here are some ideas for New Years ~s you can feel free to add to your own personal list.

Some typical ~s include:
256x256 - Found on very cheap cameras, this ~ is so low that the picture quality is almost always unacceptable. This is 65,000 total pixels.
640x480 - This is the low end on most "real" cameras.

A good number of ~s were from Photographers looking to expand their business in 2010. Here are some of the ways they plan to do this.

Megapixels: Calculating the True cost of ~
Nothing excites camera buyers more than leaps in ~. Like it or not, the eye-catching and revenue generating headlines are about mega-pixels. We all know that these high-tech new machines come with a big price tag.

First stop, you need to have a camera that is capable of shooting large ~s. Professional photographers strive for at least twelve megapixels in order to create a quality portrait.

~- This is the amount of information in a digitally captured image. It is measured in pixels. These are the individual elements that are like little tiles, that make up a digital image.

~ of computer monitors[edit]
Computers can use pixels to display an image, often an abstract image that represents a GUI. The ~ of this image is called the display ~ and is determined by the video card of the computer.

The ability of a lens to discern small detail; in photography, the image ~ in the final photograph depends on the resolving power of the sensitive emulsion and on that of the lensóthe two are not related, but the effective ~ is a function of both; ...

~. Cameras in the 3 megapixel category provide a typical ~ of 2048x1536. This falls short of Kodak Photo CD's 2048x3072, and the ~ of most film scanners.

~ is the total number of dots or pixels that make up a final photo. ~ is measured for each individual component in the photographic system - such as the film or image sensor, or can measure the entire optical system - e.g.

To learn everything there is about photography, I would prefer an older SLR style camera over a flashy, very high ~ point and shoot model. Unless you have very special requirements and need to print mural sized pictures, you do not need all that ~.

The ~ of a digital photo is dependent on how many pixels it contains. My camera (Nikon D300) has 12.2 Million pixels (or 12.2 MP) which is 4288 pixels (wide) x 2848 pixels (high).

~   In digital photography, ~ is a measurement of the number of pixels that make up a digital photograph. ~ is one of the benchmarks of digital cameras and images. More pixels allow producing bigger prints.

~ is the ability to distinguish fine spatial detail. The spatial frequency at which a digital image is sampled (the sampling frequency) is often a good indicator of ~.

~ is the term used to describe the amount of data in a file, screen display, or printed image etc.

~ is a measurement of image sharpness and is expressed in millions of pixels, or megapixels.
A measure of the level of color intensity. Highly saturated colors may cause images to appear unrealistic.

You must have noticed that there are indeed a lot of similarities between the D3X and D3, but the main reason people pay the high cost for the D3X is to have 24M pixels, approximately twice as many as on the D3.

(see Image ~ )
Fine, irregular pattern appearing on the surface of an emulsion which has been subjected to a sudden and severe temperature change during development.

is an indication of digital image quality, which in turn is determined by the number of pixels. The higher the ~, the better the image will look.

~ - Often the more megapixels a camera has, the more expensive it is - but more megapixels don't by themselves guarantee great picture quality.

~, interpolated. A process that enlarges an image by adding extra pixels without actually capturing light from those pixels in the initial exposure.
~, optical. The true ~ of an image based on the number of photosites on the surface of the image sensor.

In digital photography terminology, ~ is a measure of the number of pixels there are on a sensor. The ~ of digital cameras is measured in "megapixels" - millions of pixels.

~: Technical term for the measurement of photographic sharpness, ~ is lower for digital point-and-shoots than film models.

~ - The more pixels per square inch in a digital image, the better the quality of the picture. The crispness of a picture or its ~ is a function of the number of pixels per square inch.

~ - The more pixels there are in a digital image, the sharper it will appear. This is the ~. It is usually expressed as two figures representing the photo's height and width, such as 1200 x 1600 pixels.

Digital Image Files:
A digital image file is comprised of a quantity of pixels.

~ is expressed as either the number of pixels counted horizontally by the number of pixels counted vertically or by the number of megapixels.

Refers to the sharpness and clarity of an image. The term is most often used to describe monitors, printers, and bit-mapped graphic images. In the case of dot-matrix and laser printers, the ~ indicates the number of dots per inch.

Refers to the number of pixels, both horizontally and vertically, used to either capture an image or display it. The higher the ~, the finer the image details.
RGB Color ( Red Green Blue) ...

~. The quality of any digital image, whether printed or displayed on a screen, depends on its ~, or the number of pixels used to create the image. More, smaller pixels add detail and sharpen the edges.

~: The ability of photographic equipment to discern fine details from one another, e.g. closely-spaced pairs of lines (as used in Test Charts). When applied to digital imaging, as a general term, ~ might best be defined as "the number of pixels per linear unit of measure".

Spatial ~ is normally expressed as the number of pixels per linear unit e.g. 300ppi (pixels per inch), sometimes dpi (dots per inch) or spi (samples per inch). For colour ~ see bit depth.

A measurement of the ability of an optical, capture, or output system to record and reproduce detail. It can be defined in a number of different metrics such as Line Pairs, PPI, DPI, SPI, and LPI. Also see Optical ~, Dots Per Inch, Pixels Per Inch, Lines Per Inch.
RGB ...

~. In image editing, the number of pixels per inch. ~ is used to determine the size of the image when printed.

~ All images are blurred to some extent; otherwise they would contain infinitely fine detail and hence an infinite amount of information. The amount of blurring is technically called the ~ of the image, with high ~ meaning little blurring. 1.

Digital cameras record images in pixels. If you expand a picture on your computer with graphic software by zooming in on the picture, you will eventually see the picture rendered as a series of colored dots. The more dots per inch in a picture, the higher the ~.

~ - (1) Fine detail in an image. (2) Also means "Resolving power."
RESOLVING POWER - Ability of film, lens or both together to reproduce fine detail.

high ~-Refers to digital images with a high level of detail, due to a higher number of pixels used to create that image.

Image ~ Settings: Your camera phone will have different settings for image ~. For instance
you might see settings for 3,264 X 2448 (8 Megapixels) or 2,048 X 1,536 (3.2 Megapixels). The settings will vary
depending on the type of camera phone you use.

Image ~ - The number of pixels in a digital photo is commonly referred to as its ~.

Base ~
The PhotoCD image ~ (512 x 1024) that is established for display on current televisions.

Low ~
Wanting to squeeze every last bit of space you can on a memory card, you select to take photos at a lower ~. Great if all you ever want is to email them or post them on Facebook. But what if you may want to print one out, frame one, or even use them in a book?

The key to knowing how sharp your images will be when projected, ~ is the spec that determines if you'll see the fine detail on the eagle's feathers crisply. Simply, the higher the ~, the better images look.

~: This is a critical aspect if you want very high quality images. Increase this to the maximum ~ as much as possible. Or use a ~ your comfortable in. Many camera phones have from Photo ID size up to 5 MPs.

This is a huge issue, and one where I think there's still some advantage to using film. With cameras now passing the 11-megapixel mark, there isn't much of a discernible difference between a 20x30 print from a digital capture or a 35mm slide.

~, type in 300 pixels/inch if you want to print or 72 pixel/per inch for web upload. Now save your final image as a Jpeg.

~ measures the quality of the television's picture and uses numbers like 720 and 1080 to represent the lines of pixels within the screen. To calculate the total number of pixels in a screen, you have to multiply the horizontal by vertical lines.

~ 3: If you can't reduce the priority/stress level from the client believe it or not sometimes just talking to the client (person to person NOT email) about the lack of respect / treatment can help. Do not be mean, speak to the client politely.

~, however is a single variable in the success of your image and in my opinion it's a really low priority one. Lighting, composition and technique are all significantly more valuable to the success of a photograph than its pixel count.

The ~ of a lens can be tested in a number of different ways. One way some people have chosen is to measure the ~ in the aerial image formed by the lens. To do this a ~ chart is used as the target and the image formed in the film plane is examined by a microscope.

High-~ photos take up more storage space, but the extra information present in these photos produces better results when printing or enlarging. If they will only be displayed on a monitor screen, this extra detail is usually unnecessary.

Image ~ becomes important when it is time to print an image. A ~ of 300 pixels per inch should give excellent print quality while a minimum of 150 pixels per inch is generally considered acceptable. ~ is the number of pixels on a side divided by the output size.

A high ~ image sensor can capture much more variation in light than a low ~ image sensor, and can therefore reproduce an image more faithfully and realistically.

A high-~ scanning device used in the most demanding professional applications. They can often be the source of extremely large files. See scanner and film scanner.

Scanner ~ is usually quoted in dots per inch (dpi). The higher the number of dpi, the greater the quality of the resulting image. Most scanners allow what is called interpolation, where the scanner fills in the detail between scanned points.

At full ~, the 500D captures a whopping 15.1 megapixels per shot.
This lets you make exceptionally high-quality prints, even at very large sizes - ideal for those who want to adorn their walls with poster-sized images.

1. Megapixels and ~ ...

The image ~ of the Canon is 3 MP higher. However, this does not necessarily mean the image produced is better. In fact, it's the same as the 10MP and the extra 3 MP will take up more storage space. But sometimes higher ~ can help us when cropping a photograph is needed.

The final ~ r_final that you get on film depends not only on the aerial ~ of the lens r_lens but also on the ~ of the film r_film. However, when r_lens becomes critical, the effect of r_film becomes quite neglectible.

In terms of ~, the Nikon D810 hits the same 36.3MP benchmark set by the D800 and D800E. The Canon 5D Mark III's sensor offers 22.3 effective megapixels.

Q: Will the ~ increase with new sensor related technologies ? To some degree - yes. Assuming the manufacturers will find a way to get rid of the sensor low-pass filter there'll be a substantial gain for instance.

Tip 7: Low ~ & Image software enhancement.
Most camera phones have a relatively low ~ capture, usually one Mega Pixel or less, which is very low when compared with a regular 7-10 Mega Pixel digital camera.
