Join Emily Kay for an in-depth discussion in this video Retina displays, part of Photoshop for Web Design.
- [Instructor] You've probably heard something about…Retina displays: high-density images, 2x, 3x.…What the heck does this all mean?…In the simplest terms,…Retina displays means a high-definition display,…but before we go into detail…about how to create Retina-ready images,…you need to understand the technology behind them.…Let's start off by going over some terminology.…Device pixel is the smallest physical unit displayed.…Pixel density refers to the number of pixels displayed…in any given space.…
Resolution is the number of pixels…across the entire width or height of a device.…Pixels per inch, PPI,…or you may hear of it referred to as DPI,…that's the number you get…when you divide the physical width of the display…by the number of horizontal pixels displayed.…High-DPI is a display density…of 200 pixels per inch or greater.…So with that said,…you can have an iPad and an older desktop monitor…with the same physical size, but different pixel densities.…
The iPad will have more pixels jammed within the space,…and because of this, the display will be a higher quality…
