The following link shows a simple way to measure the resolution of the
paper. In this case, the paper is Crane's Cover-90. It seems to be
able to resolve somewhere between 300 and 600 lpi. A 600 ppi negative
should have enough resolution so as not to be detectable when using this
paper. I would not recommend 360 ppi as this would not yet be beyond
the resolving capability of this paper.
