What is the difference between DPI and PPI

The higher these settings are, the better. For example, 300 DPI is enough for most cases, but a picture with a resolution of 100 DPI will look grainy and vague.

As for PPI vs DPI, in the modern world these two terms are almost completely interchangeable, as they are used in the context of digital materials. While historically DPI means the amount of ink dots per an inch, today it’s a synonym of pixels.

PPI is a key parameter for an image’s quality, so if it’s too small, a conversion may be needed.

Luckily, we have a perfect tool for it.
