DEFINITION:  What is SCREEN RESOLUTION?

From The whatis.com Web Site:
http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/0,,sid9_gci212895,00.html


RESOLUTION:

Resolution is the number of pixels (individual points of color) contained on a display monitor, expressed in terms of the number of pixels on the horizontal axis and the number on the vertical axis. The sharpness of the image on a display depends on the resolution and the size of the monitor. The same pixel resolution will be sharper on a smaller monitor and gradually lose sharpness on larger monitors because the same number of pixels are being spread out over a larger number of inches.

A given computer display system will have a maximum resolution that depends on its physical ability to focus light (in which case the physical dot size - the dot pitch - matches the pixel size) and usually several lesser resolutions. For example, a display system that supports a maximum resolution of 1280 by 1023 pixels may also support 1024 by 768, 800 by 600, and 640 by 480 resolutions. Note that on a given size monitor, the maximum resolution may offer a sharper image but be spread across a space too small to read well.

Resolution:  A measurement, usually expressed in linear dots per inch (dpi) both horizontally and vertically, of the sharpness of an image generated by an output device such as a monitor or a printer.

Pixel:  The smallest picture element that a device can display and out of which the displayed image is constructed.


The RULE TO REMEMBER...if you're NEW to all this:

HIGH SCREEN RESOLUTION = HIGHER NUMBERS
SMALLER IMAGES & SMALLER TEXT DISPLAYED


LOW SCREEN RESOLUTION = LOWER NUMBERS
LARGE IMAGES & LARGER TEXT DISPLAYED
