    I have a 5336x2298 photo that I want to get a big print of...what would be appropriate, as far as size goes? 11x14? 12X20? 16X20?

    Thanks.

    If that is digital straight from the camera @ 200-300 dpi IMO 16x20 should be fine, but we all have different standards.

    It depends on subject matter: often portraits can be enlarged much more than say a landscape with lots of fine details.

    It depends on technical quality: a shot with camera shake or underexposed will look worse the more it's enlarged.

    It depends on the viewers' eyesight, viewing distance, and opinion.

    Assuming the technical quality is good, I would think you'd be able to go up to 36"x16" (your resolution implies an odd aspect ratio) by incremental upsizing using bicubic smoother in Photoshop.
