    Depends on how big a printer you have, which of course we have no way of knowing. – Olin Lathrop Apr 15 '16 at 11:13
  • It's a poster type of image and I want to print it pretty big to hang it on my wall, I am giving the image out for printing so I just want to know how big it can be – viswanatx Apr 15 '16 at 11:19
  • it can be as big as you want, it depends how many pixels per inch you want to print it at, and what sort of quality you're looking to achieve, and what media you're wanting to print on – laurencemadill Apr 15 '16 at 11:29

    And the content of the image. Please see the existing question and its answers, which should cover all of these concerns. – mattdm Apr 15 '16 at 11:32

Just divide. If you want to print the image at 300 dpi, the size will be (3000px/300dpi x 2077px/300dpi) = 10in x 6.9in. If you want to print it as a poster, you'll have to accept a lower resolution. Say you want it to be 30" in the longer dimension: 3000px/30in = 100dpi, so you'd get an image that's 30in x 20.7in. That's not a gallery print or anything, but it'll probably look fine on your wall.
