is an option for Export, Rasterize, and related functions that specifies at what resolution bitmap images should be rendered.


  • ImageResolution->r specifies that a bitmap should be rendered at a resolution of r dpi.
  • ImageResolution is relevant only for bitmap graphics formats such as "PNG", and not for resolutionindependent formats such as "SVG".
  • The default setting ImageResolution->Automatic typically uses a resolution of 72 dpi for bitmap graphics formats.
