is this a self publish job or one by a commercial printer?  if it's by a
commercial printer, i would check with them and see what resolution the
images need to be.  i have never used anything over a 300 dpi image for
any print job (home or commercial) and i always got good results.  my
printer is a 1440 dpi rez.  never had need to use it that high.
