Interpolated / Uninterpolated

Definition(s)

  • Most scanners have a maximum pixel-per-inch resolution before they start guessing or interpolating the data. Interpolated files require the computer to simulate data in an image file, while uninterpolated files hold only data that is accurate to the original. Uninterpolated resolution is, therefore, preferred for accurate scanning.  1
