I am not sure what you mean by "at 4000".

For wallpapers, "dots/pixels per inch" does not mean anything; you are looking at pure pixels. Now that you have more pixels, you can either scale down the picture more to get your 1600x1200 or you can do some extra cropping to get a better/different view.

For printing, "dots/pixels per inch" does mean something. With the extra pixels, you can either increase the density and keep the print the same size, or you can keep the density and make bigger prints.
