What is a megapixel?

In other words, a megapixel is a way to measure the quality of an image. A megapixel is equal to one million pixels. Thus, a camera with a 10-megapixel resolution is able to capture images with a resolution of 10 million pixels. It means that the image with more pixels as a result of megapixels count is more detailed and thus, can be printed at larger sizes without making them pixelated or blurry.

The number of pixels in any image determines the resolution of the image. It also determines the level of detail in any image. The higher the number of megapixels, the higher the resolution of the image and the more detail it can capture. Thus, the megapixel count is often used as a key factor in determining image quality. But nowadays, many post-processing and image-processing equipment software play a crucial role in addition to megapixels for determining image quality and details.
