Is there some type of mesh count formula that relates to the resolution of your image? I am printing on 100% cotton t-shirts (with plastisol) so I know what the overall range I should be using but how can I know exactly what it should be?

There is no forumla as such unless you are working with half-tones, which I assume you are not.

The finer the detail of the image, the higher the mesh count that might be needed.

It depends on a lot of factors so there's no set formula. There is a relationship between halftone frequency and what mesh count you would use but again it's not a set rule.

If you post your image I'm sure we can at least give some advice.
