Little bit about DPI

DPI is the term which used in printing and photography. The quality of your print or photocopy depends on DPI. The more DPI you use, the better photo or print you get. Take a look at the photos below. I have added the following photos to explain how DPI causes in photo quality. The dots in the photo are not as accurate. Just look at them to understand.

Look at the first picture. If you print using 10 DPI, you will see the same picture. You will not understand what it is and what the picture is. Printing using 10 DPI is very cheap.

Now, look at the second picture. If you print using 50 DPI, your print will appear like the second picture. Here, too, you will not understand what this picture is about, but with little attention, you can recognize that picture. This picture can be identified by reducing the size of the image at a time.

Now, look at the last picture. You can easily tell that there is a dog in the picture. Also there you can see compact dots between the picture. The size of the dots is too small. And they are very close to each other. So the dog in the image becomes visible and you saw it.

Now you understand that the visibility of the image will increase as you increase the DPI. So the image with more DPI looks clearer. One disadvantage of this is that the more ink you use, the higher the ink costs, so the cost is higher.

I hope now you understand what is DPI actually. If you like to read this type of article keeps coming to this blog, we upload articles daily. If you like this article don’t forget to share it with your friends. If you have any questions feel free to ask me.
