Printed Color Goes Bad! RESOLUTION


Isn’t this image great? I found it on the web. And yes, it looks great on screen, however, printed color requires a much higher resolution. Image resolution is measured by the number of dots/pixels per inch. To produce rich detailed color on a printing press, generally 300 dpi is recommended. An image used on the web is likely to be only 72dpi. The smaller size of the web file allows pictures to load quickly. But if you try to print a low-res image, the screen dots become more visible, ragged edges appear, image detail is lost, and color may look weak and washed-out.
