4K Imaging for Marketplace

Is 4K a hard requirement for screenshots or will lower resolutions properly upscale. The problem is I only have access to 2K imaging for screenshots. 4K Monitor and Card are not available at this time due to cost. Will this be an issue and the images look blurry at 4K?

You can upscale images in any photo editing software (PS, Corel etc.).

Yes they are mandatory.

You can upscale your GPU settings and take 4K screenshots on 1080px monitor as well. There are multiple "tutorials" to do so.

I also take screenshots like this. It is a littlebit tedious job but works.

Nice trick, works perfectly. from this tutorial it's unclear but DSR modes should be enabled in 3D settings tab before they appear in resolutions list.

Frankly, I did not know about that method. It is great that 4k screenshots can be made this way.
