  • 132 PPI pixel density.

  • Must be minimum of 300 PPI or more pixel density.

If you had 300 ppi, it would be a waste of a pixels. Print/ink technology needs 300 dots of ink per inch for photographic quality while pixels have a defined size (that doesn't bleed into paper) can look very photographic good at lesser densities in the 100 ppi range.

Web images are designed around a 72 ppi concept, so if you went to 300 ppi on an ipad, images would look 1/4 the size they are intended and would often be much too small to see what's in it!
