Explanation: pixel, abbreviated from picture element, refers to the lowest measurement unit of information which forms a digital photo.

The individual pixels include very small dots, squares as well as rectangles. There are up to millions of pixels in a digital photo, but you cannot see separate pixels because without the magnification, they are so small. Because of not being able to view separate pixels, the final result that the human eye can see seems to be a seamless photo.

The LCD screen of a digital model which is located on the back is also constituted by a large number of pixels. The more pixels an LCD has, the sharper photos are.

Also Called: picture element
