This question already has an answer here:

I would like to make a very large print of a photo I have taken, of about 60 inches wide, and about 36 inches high (though the actual aspect ratio of the cropped file would imply a 34 in height).

The size of the image is 4858x2733 pixels. Is it possible to make a print of that size and have it look okay without additional post processing? What's the largest print I could comfortably make without printing on canvas?

Thanks so much, Tom

For close viewing (but not fine art quality), ~300 dpi suffice, which would give a maximum size ~16 x 10 in. For a poster to be viewed from a distance, though, coarse pixelization may be acceptable. It was to the Pointillists... and Roy Lichtenstein took it to the digital extreme.
