8 x 10 = 2400 x 3000
5 x 7 = 1500 x 2100
4 x 6 = 1200 x 1800 (this is 300 dpi of course)

Some photos - depending on the number of pixels in the image - look
better when printed at a specific size. Use the following guidelines
as a general rule.

Minimum recommended image resolutions for printing:
4 x 6 Print / 640x480 pixels minimum
5 x 7 Print / 1024x768 pixels minimum
8 x 10 Print / 1536x1024 pixels minimum
Wallet Prints / 320x240 pixels minimum (Actual image size: 2" x 3")

Most camera shop printers print at a maximum of 300dpi.

It is not recommended to interpolate images up to meet these numbers.

In addition, cropping the images to the correct aspect ratios will
prevent trimming of the contents.

For a 4 x 6 print: Your image should have an aspect ratio of 1:1.5
For a 5 x 7 prints: Your image should have an aspect ratio of 1:1.4
For an 8 x 10 print: Your image should have an aspect ratio of 1:1.25
For a 16 x 20 print: Your image should have an aspect ratio of 1:1.25
For a 20 x 30 print: Your image should have an aspect ratio of 1:1.5
For Wallet-size print: Your image should have an aspect ratio of 1:1.5

It's 3008 x 2000 px.

But there is no definite answer to your question. It all depends.
For instance, it depends on viewing distance, your standards for
acceptable quality, and whether the image is suitable for upsampling.

If you want - you can make mural sized prints from a D70. If you just
step back far enough to watch them, they'll look fine.

For «normal» viewing distances, and for levels of quality I find
acceptable (YMMV) you should print at 240 ppi. That makes the
largest print from a D70 12.5 x 8.3 in.

Some purists insists you need to print at 300 ppi for quality.
In that case, the largest print you can make without upsampling
is 10 x 6,7 in.

Some images (i.e. those with large blocks of uniform colour and little
detail) upsample very well with a suitable tool (e.g. Genuine
Fractals). In that case - the sky is the limit. Others break up when
you try to upsample - but upsampling as a method to increase the size
of a a print is not as useless as the previous poster in this thread
indicated.
