    Difference between DPI and Pixel Size

    Zephyr Windwalk

      Hi, I'd like to know the difference between DPI and pixel size, and how it can affect the quality of the image I upload on social media (Facebook, twitter, etc). As far as I know, DPI is for printing. Pixel size is for computer image itself. If I upload a Facebook cover page which is (820 x 461px. DPI is 72) but the problem is the picture is somehow pixelated. Now one suggested that it should be 300 dpi to ensure that its clear and high resolution. Would anyone, disagree because it should stay 72 DPI and the pixel size should be the one to adjust.

       

      My question is:

      Is there any difference between adjusting the DPI or pixel size? They said its different.
