The image will be framed and hung in a stairwell. I'd like to one of my own photos (maybe tweak it with photoshop first), or else find one for free or for cheap online.
(1) What is the minimum resolution that I am looking at here (again, the image will likely be 4-5 feet wide and 4 foot tall)? Is there any other quality issues that I should be aware of (I am a newbie with image files)?
(2) Does anyone know of any websites that sells these kinds of photographs or images? Or offers them for free?
