The quality of the original picture would be the primary factor. Digital images are captured using one pixel for R ,G or B depending on which one is strongest. This means your three megapixel images equates to a one megapixel RGB Image.The camara software, just like your computer software, interpolates "estimates" what colors should be between these pixels and creates an artificial 3 megapixel image. It is just not possible to get get slide film quality with this technology.
Foveon,Inc developed an image sensor with three layers of photodectors and captures R G and B for each pixel. Slightly better than slide film quality. Sigma's SD9 , for example, has this sensor and is a mere $1,800.00 plus lens etc. . Guess we poor amatuers are going to have to wait a couple years.
Want to test your image? Cut a half inch by half inch section of your photo. Modify this file to 2500 dpi. File will be 30+ TIMES LARGER. Set your screen to view actual pixels. Back away to same distance you would be from your projector screen. This is not exact, just an approxiamation.
