PIXELS PER INCH CALCULATOR

PPI is a commonly used acronym for Pixels Per Inch. It is basically used as a representation of the measurement of the pixel density of a digital screen. As the name suggests, Pixels Per Inch depicts the number of pixels that can be fitted on a 1-inch line.

This PPI calculator calculates the pixel density or resolution of your screen display on the basis of the screen dimensions and the pixel count.

To calculate the PPI of any display device on this calculator, simply enter the screen width (in Pixels), screen height (in Pixels) and diagonals (in Inch) into the respective fields and click on Calculate button.

WHY IS PPI SIZE IMPORTANT?

When a digital image has a higher PPI, you get to see a much better image with finer details.

PPI Formula

PPI = Diagonal in pixels/Diagonal in inches
