    I had to supply pictures when I worked at the museum; and everybody wanted to specify dpi. But any picture can be a thousand dpi – you just have to shrink the size as you pump the resolution.

    More sense to ask for pixels – you can apply your desired dpi to that, and know how big it will end up on the screen or page.

    Sounds fun ^^

    Though will the gallery ever be put into order by new to old? Kinda hard to keep up on which arts are the new ones when it’s organized by name, and I enjoy looking at all the arts, just don’t want to have to shuffle through all of them each update ^^; That and I feel sorry for any of those who have names starting with Z, and a shorter scroll down wouldn’t be bad.

    If not, no worries, I’ll make do with the usual ^^ Love it regardless!

  3. @Ellen – It’s pretty common to use dpi and ppi interchangably. For a digital medium, I mean ppi, of course.

    @Anonymous – The gallery is 8 years old. there’s no way I could reorder it now. When we put new pictures up, we usually let you know who has new ones.

    Erica –

    I know DPI and PPI are the same thing. It’s just that unless I know how large a picture is wanted, it’s a useless number.

    A 10×10 inch picture at 100 dpi becomes a 1×1 inch picture at 1000 dpi. The number of pixels remains unchanged at 1,000,000. (The number of bytes in the image file may be less if you use compression, more if you use color.)

  5. I don’t really care about the size of the picture. If this was a poster contest that would be one thing, but this really isn’t.
