A 5MP image can only be at most 8x6" to match the 325-DPI resolution of a retina display. That's not really 'cutting' it, IMO. I am talking about sizes like 20x30" and larger. Something that really makes an impression.

Cool, but explain to me what the advantage of viewing a 20X30 image on a retina display is, as opposed to a more typical display?

(BTW, we've both been referring to the resolution of the screen as 'DPI' instead of PPI... oops).
