pix·el

(pĭk′səl)
The most basic unit of an image on a computer or television screen. Pixels are arranged in rows and columns and are lit up in a specific pattern to create an image.
Did You Know? If you look at a panel in a comic book very closely, you will see that colored or shaded areas are often made of very tiny dots. Images on computer screens are also composed of very tiny dots known as pixels. (Pixel is a shortening of picture element.) The computer controls each pixel individually. Most monitors have hundreds of thousands or millions of pixels that are lit or dimmed to create an image. The colors on a monitor consist of arrangements of red, blue, and green pixels that adjust in intensity to create all of the colors that you see on a screen. Pixels vary in size according to the model of monitor. Monitors with the smallest pixels have the sharpest images, but they require more memory to store data about the color and intensity of each pixel.
