Pixels, Inches, Megapixels, Resolution
Here's a helpful chart that tells an image's optimum dimensions in pixels for whatever print size and quality you want. It also shows how that translates into "megapixels." There are handy explanations of the terms also (the chart itself is near the bottom of the page.)

Sketch 2: Personal Historical Re-enactment.

Think of a memorable event in your personal life.
Construct a collage image inspired by that memory, using a combination of appropriated material and new photographs or drawings. You may attempt to re-enact scenes and photograph them, but don't use any photographs that were taken at the time of the event in question.

You don't have to literally illustrate the memory -- be as creative as you want in how you interpret the connection.

When your image is finished, please drop a copy of the PSD file in the folder labelled SKETCH-2 on the server. Also, save it for the web as a JPG and post it on the course blog with your name and a title. If the JPG is more than 550px wide, make sure to check the box that says "Use Thumbnail" and set the width to 550.
