Pixel (Picture Element) is the name for one of the millions of tiny dots that togther form an image on a computer screen. They are so small that they cannot be seen individually unless you set the resolution on your screen very low. One pixel can only be one colour at any time but together they can form different shades. There are various colour blends that can be used with pixels in order to create a wide range of colours.
