Not necessarily. We, and others, have printed figures (gels) on
600 dpi laserjests and the journals were happy with the results. A colleague
told me that (at least for one journal) the limiting step in printing
photos was around the 600 dpi resolution anyway, so there was no point
in submitting higher quality than that. I can't vouch for that but
it's worth specifically asking the editors, I suppose. 600 pdi printers
are not universally available but are certainly not rare.
The same colleague also had higher quality prints made from a scanned
image by taking it to the university's AV people, who had access to a high
quality printer. Cheaper than a professional lab, though probably not
