That's much too low... Either you took a low-res picture (simple mobile
phone?) or you downscaled it in the Gimp.

For a canvas print as you mentioned 3000x2000 is more realistic.

Check the original image, the one before you started manipulating it. If
this is of sufficient resolution you can retry to manipulate a new copy
without downscaling it.

Indeed, 900 x 572 is very low, it cant be printed with quality. In the other hand, 300dpi will be way too large a file.
What you need to do is get a larger file that is manageable in gimp and other tools.

You can try to photograph again with a better camera (more mpixels) or use a panorama tool to stitch partial images together.
There is this nice tool called Hugin ( that can do this for you. It takes a little getting used to, but no big deal. I managed to get a 110mpixels image with hugin.
