For color or greyscale pictures that are (like) photos, 150 dpi in final size is mostly enough, even for quality offset printing.
„In final size“ = not scaled up
If you have fine lines, like diagrams or scanned text, you might need 300 dpi. For black & white lineart, you should use the resolution of your printer, but even for offset printing 800 dpi is enough (more than 1200 dpi are always nonsense).
