The amount of pixels an image contains gives an idea of how sharp the image will be. An image with a high number of pixels will be sharper than one with fewer pixels. Therefore, to cover an entire wall, you will need a photo of a much higher quality and with many more pixels than you would need to cover a smaller surface.
A number of factors other than pixels will also determine whether the photo quality is good enough to create wallpaper.
The light balance in the image also has an impact on the result. A dark image often needs to be of a higher resolution to work well. The focus of the image is also key. Images depicting motion often need to be of a higher resolution than still images taken using a tripod.
This guide gives a rough idea of the picture size needed for different wall sizes.
Please provide high quality images for wallpapers. It is not possible to digitally improve the quality of a bad image.
The image must be at least 1000 pixels wide and 1000 pixels high.
