My point is that in practice this stuff is not nearly as complicated as the
theoretical discussions can make it seem.

Unless you downscale, a pixel in the camera is a pixel on your screen is a
dot on your printer.

The typical digital image has far more pixels than you can fit on the
average page at output resolutions typical for tech-writer deliverables, so
you probably need to crop and downscale.

To maximize image quality, you want to downscale by a whole-number ratio
(e.g. 2:1 / 50% = one output pixel for every 2x2 pixel grid in the
original).
