There is information on routine formats and resolutions on a page of the
primer on the CD-R side of my WWW site.

Briefly, one can reach 100 lpm on a very fine 35-mm camera system. That
yields 2400x3600x4~35 megapixels. With a zoom lens or typical user film,
the advantage over a 6-MP camera is slight. However, if output is to be to
a computer monitor or to a conventional printer (inkjet, laser or
equivalent), the available image quality from 2 MP is satisfactory.

Liner notes vary tremendously in resolution required for legibility. I have
some LPs where 600 dpi monochrome is barely suffiicent and others where 150
is ample.
