Preparing your Art

Uploading your art

File Quality/Resolution

What is DPI?

  • DPI stands for Dots Per Inch. It's a measure used mainly for printing, indicating how many dots of ink or toner will be placed on one inch of paper.
  • Think of it like the density of the dots: the more dots you have in a space, the finer and more detailed the print can be.

Pixel Density and Image Size

  • Pixel Density refers to how many pixels (tiny squares of color) make up the image on a digital display.
  • Image Size is the dimensions of an image (like 800x600 pixels).
  • Higher pixel density means more pixels are packed into the same area, which usually results in a sharper, clearer image.

How They Affect Image Quality

  • A higher DPI means a higher-quality print because it's more detailed.
  • On screens, higher pixel density (more pixels in the same space) makes images look sharper.

Why Increasing DPI Doesn't Always Improve Quality

  • If an image has low DPI or low pixel density (like a small, blurry photo), just changing the number to a higher DPI or resizing it to a larger size won't magically add detail.
  • The original image has a certain amount of information (detail, clarity). When you increase the DPI or size without adding more real detail, the computer has to guess (or "interpolate") what to add, which can result in a blurry or pixelated image.

Think of it like blowing up a balloon with a small picture on it. As the balloon gets bigger, the picture stretches and becomes less clear. You can't add more detail to the picture by just stretching the balloon.

So, for the best quality, you want to start with a high DPI or high pixel density image, especially if you're going to print it or display it on a large screen.
