Digital images reside in computer files, and these files must adhere to a strict file format for them to be readable in the future. When presented on a screen or sent to a printer, an image has a certain number of pixels, and each pixel is defined by three numbers (for a color image). Consider an image with 6 million pixels, laid out in 2000 rows of 3000 pixels. If this is a color image, then each pixel has three numbers. Thus, the content of the file comprises 18 million numbers (there is additional header and trailer information also associated with each image file).

Conversely, if it were important to have as much of the foreground and background in focus as possible, a small aperture or large f/stop number would be chosen.
