I am thinking about buying the following photography and printing it at a decent printing service in my city.

enter image description here

I want to print it at 300dpi on 60x40cm (24x16") format or perhaps even on 90x60cm (36x24") if quality permits.

  1. However, I wonder which resolution to buy:

    • 2400 × 1602px or
    • 7360 × 4912px as the image price jumps significantly from $149 to $249.
  2. I guess it will also depend whether I go with 100ppi or 300ppi. Which one should I choose? The print I plan to hang on a wall in my room, if this matters, so it will be seen from a small distance like 2-3 meters max.

    There's no definitive answer as to whether it would be worth it to spend the extra $100 to get a higher resolution print. For one person it might be, for another person it might not be. – Michael C Dec 21 '16 at 0:15

    Plenty of people have photographed this road and its trees, the Dark Hedges, near Ballymoney in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. You should be able to find images similar to that shot, possibly at a lower price. – Mick Dec 21 '16 at 4:10
