Printing high resolution photos

A client came to me recently asking me to stitch some photos together. The photos ended up as two different files. One was a panoramic view of a city skyline at 28538×2039 pixels. The other was a view of some mountains at 5436×2410 pixels. I burned them to CD for her.
The next day, she came back asking me to compress them or reduce their dimensions. I asked her why.
“No one I took them to could print them.”
“Who did you take them to?”
“Walmart. Costco. …”
“That’s because they aren’t printers. Try a printer. Any printer worth their weight can print these photos.”
