What is DPI?
DPI is dots per inch, which describes resolution of an image usually when printed or scanned. Higher the Dots per inch sharper the image. When you print lower DPI image even on highest quality printer, It doesn’t have enough RAW data to produce a sharp quality image, would not produce a sharp and edges would look fuzzy
Based on DPI of an image, Images can be categorised into different types
Low Resolution image – Images with DPI value less than or equal to 150 DPI. Usually images on web are 72 DPI only. This is one of reason why images from web aren’t usually very sharp after printing.
Medium Resolution image – Images have DPI value between 150 DPI and 300 DPI. This would be good quality to print marketing materials, booklets etc
High Resolution image – Image that have more than 300 DPI or close to 600 DPI are considered to be High resolution image. Its important to note that, most of desktop printer cannot handle that much DPI. So you might want to get printing done by professional printing services.
