j/k

In all seriousness, this question cannot be answered for a bunch of reasons:

1. It depends on the subject matter, shooting conditions, etc.

2. It depends on the viewer of the photo.

3. It depends on the viewing distance for the photo.

18x13.5 mm - anything else constitutes an enlargement and introduces loss of quality.

Ok, to be simple about it. You are probably asking for how big before it starts to break down and show pixelation (otherwise you probably wouldn't be asking here). Again, there are SO MANY variables; but if you are sending it to a decent lab, you should be thrilled up to at least 20x30".

That's really simplified, but I hope it helps. If you are printing it yourself, I agree with 18x13.5 mm
