That is a great question (maybe I should have discussed it with him before buying) : )
I just checked and the largest image I could find on the web (technically illegal but it will never be seen outside of my garage) was 600 x 600, while the finished image used for printing was 961 x 961 (that's a bit shy of 6000 x 6000)!
I guess the best thing (for anyone wanting to use web images) would be to use wallpapers?
