    I'm having trouble figuring out the sizes between 1KB to Pixels. You see I have this photo (30.6 KB) and I'm trying to figure out how many pixels are in this photo. It's also in 31,355 bytes if that helps anyone else. Anyone know the answer?

    There is no answer. It depends on compression, file format, DPI and other things.

    KB is just a file size, it doesn't necessarily have to do with how big the photo/picture actually is. The colors and detail of the picture have a lot to do with the size of the file. Take my signature for example. The linked pictures with just the words are only 7KB. While the Power Ranger helmet is 15 KB, and has a lot more details and colors. And all the pics have the same dimensions (99w x 41h). All you have to do to is open it in a picture viewer, or a program like Photoshop, to see how many pixels are in your picture :)

    if you wanna know how many pixel in a Photo, right click - Properties - then go to the midle window the click on advanced (if its not clicked) then you'll see how many Pixels, in the Resolution ;) !
    the More pixels, the more higher resolution, the more data stored in the picture, the more clean and smooth details, specially in gradient colors :) !
