image size limit?

That can be a more substantial problem when printing.  At 1200 dpi, 
4096 pixels would be less than 3.5 inches wide.  May not seem too bad 
for most types of printing (yes I know it will be stretched), but for 
high-quality professional printing...

And yes, there are some 4800 dpi printers available, probably even 
higher resolutions by now.
