What is the difference between 300 and 72 DPI?

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 2:28 PM

Printed items require a higher resolution than items viewed on screen. 300 DPI is the required resolution for printed items. Computers are only able to display 72 DPI on screen, so a 72 DPI image may look okay when viewed at 100% on your monitor but will print fuzzy. When zoomed in at 200% or higher, a picture that is displayed with 300 DPI will look sharper than a picture displayed with 72 DPI.
