I use film w/ a scanner but should be the same. Have read that for photo quality prints one should stay within the 200-300 dpi range. Using this general rule for D100:

3008/200 by 2000/200 yields maximum 15" by 10" prints
ranging to
3008/300 by 2000/300 yields maximum 10" by 6.67" prints

However, following is excerpt from ofoto.com:

For a 4 x 6" print, the image resolution should be 640 x 480 pixels minimum
For a 5 x 7" print, the image resolution should be 1024 x 768 pixels minimum
For an 8 x 10" print, the image resolution should be 1536 x 1024 pixels minimum
For a 16 x 20" print, the image resolution should be 1600 x 1200 pixels minimum
For a 20 x 30" print, the image resolution should be 1600 x 1200 pixels minimum
For a Wallet-size print, the image resolution should be 320 x 240 pixels minimum

Maybe you should make multiple size prints and find the largest whose quality still suits you. If you need a 3008 x 2000 pixel image, I may be able to assist.

Hope this helps,

Dat
