D - Size - Say for a 5x7 crop, what are the pixel dimensions whereby the image will not be further "downsized" or affected by DPR "filters"?

As far as I'm aware you can use a 5x7 as long as the resolution is 72 ppi, rather than the 300 or so you'd use for printing.  I'd generally just resize to actual pixel dimensions, with a height of 1200 pixels or thereabouts.  The gallery shots are then downsized for display within a thread.

I guess I should have phrased question "D" as: "5x7 aspect ratio" instead of "5x7 crop". I wanted to avoid having DPR do any resizing of the image when it is displayed in forum posts. So, I was trying to get the "max" pixel dimensions for a 5x7 aspect ratio crop which would not be resized by DPR.
