Yep, the photo I had available wasn't much resolution (neither are geograph 
photos by default), so might need a better pic when print-publishing.

The maps however, if you change config to "config: dpi=300", then it should 
just download loads more tiles to give you the required resolution in your 
output map.  

So instead of building you a map out of 9 x zoom-14 tiles to fill a given area 
of page, your "for print" settings might create the same image from 144 x 
zoom-16 tiles.  

(Actually, you need to manually specify the zoom level at the moment to get 
that result, but that's a user-interface bug that will be fixed. Also, don't 
try this with any settings that require zoom-18, it won't work ;)
