    I just do a good long surf of the interweb and damn well take whatever I want, if I come across something I like that has a watermark I just photo shop it out and then it's mine to do what I like because I just don't care and when I want something I just take it:p:):p:):p

    Hi kelonio, OP is original poster, creator of the thread and in this instance thats you
    As for your image size, are you talking in inches or centimetres?? Actually it dosnt matter because the below info will be applicable to both.
    If im doing a picture say 35x50 cm i will search for something that is 2mp or above preferably 4mp and up, i would then open up in Microsoft paint program and print it 2x2, meaning i will have four A4 sheets if paper as a result. This is prob a hard way of doing things but its just how i do it.
    You could also get a projector that could make life easier for you

    As Haasje already stated just look for desktop wallpapers, those will be the highest resolution you can get without buying your 20 megapixel camera;)
