Line Weight Visibility

Recommended Posts

But there are limitations based on pixel size of your monitor.  


On a monitor with 100 dpi (I know there are lots of monitors with high resolution than that now, but the math is easy), a single pixel is about 10 mil. So any line less than about 15 mil will be drawn as a single pixel and you won't be able to tell the difference at 100% scale.  Anything between 15 and 25 will be 2 pixels, etc. Zoom out and even thicker lines will blend together.  Zoom in and you will see more differentiation.


And let's not start on Retina displays. Most of them are being run at far less than the true resolution so pixel blending for smoother edges can be accomplished.
