Digital monitors display pictures in small points, these are called pixels. Each pixel is a sample of an original image; more samples typically provide more accurate representations of the original.
A megapixel (MP) is a million pixels; the term is used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays.
