Nonetheless, DPI is where it's at.... "Big enough" and "resolution" are 
not the same thing.

In Properties > Image, you would in most cases want 300 DPI for images, 
in some cases as low as 150 DPI may suffice, for web 72-96 is Ok.
For a high-quality photographic book, you may want higher than 300.
