Can you post an inspiration of what you’re going for and I can try to help. I use an open source version of Adobe Illustrator.

In general, photos you find online are going to be a lower resolution than what you’d probably want for printing purposes.  It would be best if you had a photo that you took off a camera, or one that you scanned because it will be a much higher quality picture.

If you’re just using the photo for a background and you’re going to tone down the colors, it might work, but it does seem too small to print postcard size.  You should do a test print of that image, even on your home computer to see if it prints pixelated or fuzzy at all.

If you do a google image search you can filter your results by image size and choose to view only large photos.  It still won’t be quite the same quality as a scanned image or photo off your camera, but it will work better.

Hope that helps!

For colour printing of a 6×4 card you want 300 dpi, 1800×1200 pixels. If you’re going to do B&W printing you can get away with 150 dpi, but I honestly would not go that low unless I was printing text only.
