What does 600 DPI mean
DPI stands for “Dots Per Inch”, and originally, it’s a term from the publishing industry. The meaning is simple as ABC: it’s an amount of dots of ink per one inch of an image horizontally and vertically.
PPI is almost the same, but “dots” are replaced by “pixels”, and the term refers to digital photos and gadgets’ screen resolution.
The tricky moment is the following: nowadays publishing is in decline, while the digital sphere keeps growing and developing. Quite often an old-fashioned DPI is used in a modern sense, so we can say that this abbreviation is interchangeable with PPI.
Another point is: the more is not necessarily the better. Higher resolution ensures better image quality, but the larger file size as well. So, choosing between 600 and 300 DPI, vote for the former, but as for 1200 DPI or more, it may be useless, especially, if you are not going to print this pic out.
