1 Megapixel = an image with 1,000,000 pixels

so 6 Megapixels x 1,000,000 pixels = 6,000,000 pixels.

Mega = 1,000,000.

Megapixel = 1,000,000 pixels.

5 Megapixels = 5,000,000 pixels or a resolution of 2236x2236.

I could've sworn I read how many pixels in ONE megapixel. Oh well, he should be able to figure it out now.

it's a buttload. That's a huge picture.

The resolution would be 2450*2450 if the photos are a square. Probably not though. It would be like a 3:4 ratio I think... So that would be... What? I have no freakin idea. about 2121:2828

Wow, I feel like a mathematician. I've been out of school since mid-December! Maybe I will survive my second semester of college...
