Image resolution and sizing may be hard to get your head around at first but it's really worth persevering with as understanding what file size, type and resolution to use where and when can be the difference between presenting something that's picture-perfect or a pixelated disappointment. 

To help you get to grips with this topic, Alamy has put an infographic together (click the image to see a larger version) that simplifies the terminology and uses helpful diagrams to guide you through the subject. Alamy has also previously put a guide to using image releases together for us that's well worth checking out and we also have a feature on image sensor pixel size that explains how different sensor sizes have an effect on image quality.
