Images provide valuable credentials in the presentation, study and other important tasks. However, the quality, amount and accuracy of the data contained in an image vary based on the resolution of the camera used. High resolution images give the best look and appearance in for your content, presentation, websites and many more tasks. So, the image with high resolution will prove to be really helpful in making your stories, content, and websites much livelier and attractive. The quality of the image depends upon its resolution, quality of the camera lens and the pixels.

An image is made up of thousands or millions of individual dots of colour, called pixels. An image with a resolution of 1280 x 800 is made up of 800 rows of 1280 pixels or just over a mega pixel. A Resolution is a measure of how many pixels an image contains. An image with a higher resolution that is an image with more pixels contains more information than an image with a lower resolution.

Normally, more resolution is better. High resolution images shows a theme in more detail and can reveal the fine features that a lower resolution picture wouldn't show. This is why, it is always suggested that photography is best handled by cameras with high mega pixel ratings.

A few instructions on how to create high resolution images

Creating high resolution images is simple and easy if you have the correct tools. Whether you use a digital camera, scanner or piece of computer software will speak how high the resolution could be.

The first step is to consult the user manual for your camera to decide how to modify the quality of images. This will take up more space on your memory card but it makes sure that you are producing the highest quality pictures possible.

After reading the manual thoroughly the next step is to open your scanner software on your computer. There should be a setting called either "Quality" or "Resolution." At times, you only have the options for high, medium or low quality, while other times you can change the Dots per Inch (dpi) to a number value. You should also have the alternative to change the colour. You should always have concern about technological aspects so as to make the quality of image better and appealing. For this purpose, you have to be cautious while scanning text or a simple black-and-white line drawing, your dpi should be set to 1,200, and your colour settings should be set at 1-bit or black and white. If you are scanning an image that is numerous diverse shades of black, your colour settings should be greyscale, and dpi should be a minimum of 600. When doing full colour, set your colours to as many as you can (sometimes going up to 8 million, but CMYK is fine, too), and resolution should be a minimum of 300. This will guarantee that you get the best quality and high resolution image so as to make your content look attractive and eye-catchy. If you are setting your resolution any higher than the normal range then it can create strange and weird images.

It is always advisable to use a professional graphics program like Adobe Photoshop. It will be easier for you if you use professional software’s, as they are user-friendly. While using Adobe Photoshop you firstly have to create a new file and afterwards when the image dialog box pops up, ensure that your values under resolution are set to 300 pixels per inch or higher.

Lastly, change your print settings to get the highest quality output. Press the print button, and go into your settings. Look for an option for print or image quality and change it to best. Try all your other options to see if you can give your print a numerical value for resolution. After all the technological settings you can achieve your high resolution images.
