If you look at a digital image close up it is made up of lots of squares. Those squares make a bigger picture a bit like a mosaic. The more little squares there are in the file the better quality the picture.

A good resolution for print would be 300 pixels per inch, for a 175 lines per inch screen printing process with cyan, yellow, magenta and black(key). (google this) cmyk

For multi media or video a good resoultion would be 72 pixels per inch. With video you also have he pixel ratio to think about, ie not square but recktangle in shape.

I must say that that was a good reply. It really explained what "resolution" is very well.
