All of these limitations have one thing in common -- human visual acuity and color perception. What matters most is what we can see.
For digital images, it is easiest to think in terms of the following relationships:
What is not so obvious, is the relationship between printer spatial resolution, print color resolution, image pixel dimensions, human visual acuity and desirable viewing distance. All these factors are dependent on each other and combined, they decide the range of what is reasonable to print.
