    Hi, I want to print some of my pictures to hang them on the wall, but I'm not sure what is the biggest size i can go with my D60, I'm shooting in RAW and post editing with Lightroom 2.

    Im thinking around 10x13 inches

    Thanks

    This is going to be a gift for my dad, ill print it on mpix.com mounted on a Canva on Stretcher Frame, or do you think it will be better a normal frame? or other type of mounting.

    16x24 is stretching it majorly. I made plenty of 11x14 prints with my D70, and they were excellent, but only 1 12x18, and I could start to see pixelation, so I'd be wary of larger sizes if quality is of utmost importance.

    No

    I dont understand

    Ok, but even if the D60 is 10 MP and the D70 6MP The max print size is the same? i want it to look good so the quality is important for me.

    thanks

    Your D60 images can be blownup to billboard size.

    What counts is how close are the people that are looking at the image.

    What really matters is the pixel dimensions and the resolution (ppi).

    If you crop an image you loose pixel dimension and can't print as big.

    And how was the quality?

    so according to this excellent quality with a D60 can only be on a 8x10 print

    yeah, it's going to be hanging on the wall so the people looking at the image wil be close, thats why i want to know whats the biggest print size(good quality) i can do with my D60.

    Thanks to all :)
