If I'm not going to print my photographs does the resolution/ppi settings affect the quality of them, the way they are displayed or any other aspect of them. If yes, what should my ppi be.

 

Also why everyone suggests 72ppi for web use. If you dont choose that are they going to be projected too big/small?
