Your computer monitor’s resolution is a measure of how detailed an onscreen image can be, based on how many pixels the screen can provide per square inch. To give you an idea of how small these pixels are, every square inch of an average monitor contains as many as to 9,216 pixels. Even so, monitors have a relatively low resolution; they don’t use many pixels per inch compared with high-resolution printing, which can require 90,000 pixels in a square inch or more. In spite of their astonishing quantity, pixels work just like mosaic tiles (or like the dots in a Seurat painting).

The more squares used to create a square inch of the image — that is, the higher the resolution — the smoother and more realistic the picture is. indd 37 9/22/08 10:57:42 PM 38 Part I: Driving People Crazy — Illustrator’s Bum Rap In addition to their staggeringly small size, the range of colors that pixels can have is equally astonishing.
