What image resolution is recommended for a full size page or cover?

When placing an image into our software it will automatically be checked to ensure it has sufficient resolution for the placed size. When the resolution is 'low' (150ppi to 250ppi) or 'bad' (less than 150dpi) the software will display a warning message

The image size and resolution for full page images depends on the dimensions of the book.
