It would depend on how much space you want around the image for other embellishments and/or whether you are going to layer anything under it. Every digi I print is different in size, depending on what my plan is for the card.

Another thing people have suggested here is to scan your spellbinders dies (if you use them) so you can see if the image fits inside.

If all else fails, print the digi on cheaper paper so you can test the spacing on your card.

I generally print my digis between 2.5 & 3.0, but usually about 2.75" on the longest side for A2 sized cards. It seems to work out.

The same for me, I must have learned this on SCS If it's a squarish image, I go with 2.75, longer around 3, but keep the short side below 2.5 so it depends on the image. Some actually have a bigger margin around the image if it's a jpg (png's don't) so you have to take that into consideration. The best way is determine exactly how big you want your image, create a box or rectangle, then resize according to that.
