You have the actual Image Size, which refers to the physical pixel size of the image; how…big the space is it takes up onscreen.…You then have the Print Resolution, which is set in X and Y resolution. This is in terms of pixels per inch.…I will get to that in just a moment.…And then finally we have the Quality setting.…
