Photo resolution translation into size of print - Photography

It's all in how it is percieved. I used to have a 1.3Mp camera which comes out as a 1024 X 768 image. Print that to a 4 X 6 inch photo and you get 170 dpi. I printed a lot of pictures like that and almost everyone I showed them to thought they were great. But I noticed that it was slightly pixilated.

    It's all in how it is percieved. I used to have a 1.3Mp camera which
    comes out as a 1024 X 768 image. Print that to a 4 X 6 inch photo and
    you get 170 dpi. I printed a lot of pictures like that and almost

    it was slightly pixilated. But you couldn't see it unless the picture
    was about 6 inches from your nose. The pixilation was most noticeable
    with wisps of hair. When I try to point it out to the ordinary person
    they couldn't see it even if I point at the picture where I saw the
    problem. Now I am near sighted and can read small print very
    comfortably which is not the norm. I suspect that most people just
    aren't trained to see the difference which is fine. If they see a
    great picture then it is a great picture even if I see something
    different.

    I agree. I am very critical and want everything as perfect as it can be but
    most people don't care or just don't know what good is. Nothing against
    them, but what looks good to them might look terrible to me, but if they are
    satisfied then that is all that really matters. I encourage people to look
    at my pictures very close and try to find problems. A couple times they
    found things that I missed which I think is great because it means that I
    still have a way to go to achieve perfection, at least what I consider to be
    perfection.

    1.3mp is 1280*960 pixels. 1024*768 is 0.8mp.
