"RE: Printer resolution and fina art printing"

Upsample to 360 for Epson (300 Canon), if the resolution of the print otherwise would be below 360 (300 Canon).

But, if the print size would produce higher dpi than 360/300, then upsample to 720 ppi(600 Canon). The newer printheads are making smaller dots, and so higher resolution.

See, e.g., Jeff Schewe,
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?action=printpage;topic=60189.0

Lightroom apparently has advantages over PS in doing the resampling since it can automatically mix different modes of doing so.

So, as to 36 megapixels, I guess the message is to save the files. They may not be excess pixels in the the future and may print or otherwise be processed even better in the future than they can be now.
