Each pixel is a sample of an original image. More samples (therefore more pixels) provide the most accurate and clearer representation of that image. In color imaging systems, a color can be represented by 3 component intensities such as RGB (Red, Green & Blue) or 4 components such as CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black).
