    Well, actually I mentioned the number of pixels for the purpose of identification so that any reader who chose to download the file to local storage would be guided to the full resolution file from the link so that he or she would download that file rather than download the smaller file by simply right-clicking on the displayed graphic, the number of pixels being stated next to the link on the web page.
    When studied in Microsoft Paint using 8x magnification the lines in the full resolution graphic are displayed much more clearly than are the lines in the graphic displayed on the web page.
