How Many Pixels Per Inch to Make A Detailed Desktop Wallpaper?


Question

What is the highest, most reasonably possible number of pixels I should write in the image making options of Photoshop if I want a really high resolution image that I can present in several downgraded versions?

Don't give me 1920 x 1050 or any other ratios like this, please. There already is a thread like this which has not answered my question.

Resolution: 72 pixels per inch enough for such a big image, or not?

Wellcome, but your question is a contradiction.

PPI does not matter at all on an electronic device.

Don't give me 1920 x 1050 or any other ratios like this, please.

In an electronic medium you need to use simple pixels as a unit. So the answer is something like... 1920x1080, 4k. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution or 8K https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8K_resolution (7680 × 4320 px)

Some IMac have a resolution of 5k (5120‑by‑2880 px): www.apple.com/imac/

I do not know which thread did not answered the way you expected. But this is the answer.
