Resolution, chapter 2: If a client asks about the resolution of the images I'm shooting I have to say my images are "unresolved". I shoot digital negatives that have dimensions and size. They don't have a resolution until I develop them as JPEG or .PNG or anything else the client may want. The composite below shows meta data of a finished JPEG, left, and the original digital negative, DNG, right. Note the absence of a resolution in the DNG meta data. The JPEG has a resolution because it has dimensions in inches.
The JPEG has an extra line of meta data.
