CCD resolution of one million pixels. Digicams are commonly rated by Megapixels. You multiply the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution to get the total pixel count: 1280 x 960 pixels = 1 Megapixel 1600 x 1200 pixels = 2 Megapixels 2048 x 1536 pixels = 3 Megapixels 2272 x 1704 pixels = 4 Megapixels 2560 x 1920 pixels = 5 Megapixels ... and so on
One million pixels. Pixels are the tiny coloured dots that create digital pictures. The greater the number of pixels in a photo, the higher the resolution (quality) of the image.
A measurement of image quality equaling one million pixels. A higher pixel count equals a higher image resolution and better quality of image, both for online photo sharing and digital photo development. Examples: 1 megapixel= 1152x872, 1.3 megapixel = 1280x1024. "Megapixel camera" usually refers to digital cameras that have at least one million pixel resolution.
