Unlike vectors, which are resolution independent, the output quality of raster images depends upon their resolution. When you're creating a raster image, you need to tell the program how large the pixels should be — that is, how many pixels can fit in an inch, aka ppi (pixels per inch). Raster images for a web page need only be 72 ppi (relatively large pixels), but those for high-res print output need to be more like 225-300 ppi so they don't look pixellated (the tell-tale stair-stepping) in the printed output.

Good luck :)
