Blog post: Understanding DPI

If you are digitizing using a camera, how do you calculate DPI (dots per inch)?  Misty De Meo has tackled that calculation in her blog.  The key is knowing the resolution of the camera you are using.

Should we not talk about PPI instead of DPI? Misty De Meo talks about pixels and dots at the same time which can be confusing. It is still not easy to understand, nor explain..

I'm working with digitalisation of cultural archives in Finland and we have just been talking about this with our photographer at SLS.

Ps. thank you Jill for your very professional blog!
