Definition: (1) Dimension of e.g. picture or page size measured on vertical axis, at right angles to width measurement. * But may (confusingly) be referred to as 'height' in printing/publishing. (2) Sharpness of image i.e. how much is sharp; loosely synonymous with depth of field. (3) Subjective assessment of the richness of black in either print or transparency. Loosely synonymous with maximum density. *Note: high maximum density does not necessarily give greatest depth of black as this also depends on e.g. surface quality, tone colour.
