Resolution can either be course, fine, or anywhere in between. Resolution in Corel PHOTO-PAINT is simple and is determined by how many pixels fit within one inch — the greater the number, the higher the resolution. Rule of thumb: 72 pixels per inch (PPI) for anything viewed on a monitor and 300 PPI for anything printed.
