I am “old” <grin> … so I need to use a magnifying glass to read a lot of the screen words. I suppose that they are in a six or eight-point font. Can I make the screen text larger? Say to a 10- or 12-point font?
I know how you feel. My eyes aren’t all they used to be either.
The good news is, it’s actually easy to make the fonts bigger, though the setting is often well hidden.
The bad news is, it’s also easy to do the wrong thing and end up with something that seems better, but isn’t.
Please explain the relationship between bytes (resolution), pixels (understood as size), and dpi (e.g. 300 dpi resolution for printing purposes). I need to explain to colleagues at work why their reports uploaded to our website take so long to download – because they are too big and contain many high res photographs and pdfs!
It can be very confusing.
Understanding some of the details about how photographs are stored on disk, how they are displayed, and how they are printed, can allow you to make a dramatic difference in the size of documents, web pages, emails, and more.
The details aren’t horrific but they can be a little confusing if a couple of fundamentals are skipped, especially because there are two different types of “size.”
