For a high resolution large format photo print, what resolution is needed? What size can be enlarged before the image starts to break down (pixelate), ratio... from what to what?

Thank you. F.D.



More than one factor should be taken into consideration when resizing digital images. Different images would produce different quality results upon enlargement.

A few general rules for image enlargement:

The image starts to pixelate upon every re-sample/re-save, as well (and even more so) as upon enlargement.

For the high quality printing which starts at 300 DPI the re-sample/enlargement is not recommended.

Almost every image can be enlarged slightly before it starts to "break down" and pixelation occurs.

The higher quality of the source image the more enlargement can be done with less loss of quality.

As color, contrast, saturation, sharpness of every image is different from one to another, so is the possibility to get good quality prints upon enlargement would be different. Unique qualities of each image would affect the quality of the "blown up" print.

The best way to go about enlarging images is to test and see the enlarged results before printing.

Any necessary corrections can be done in Photoshop. There are ways to improve and modify the blown up image by airbrushing, painting, filtering and other processing by computer.

Sometimes some loss of quality upon enlargement is acceptable because the large format prints are usually viewed from some distance.





How do I pay for my order? And how long does it take for a large photo print to be made and sent to me?

Thank you. A.T.



All orders are paid in advance by check, using Chase QuickPay SM, or bank transfer.

It may take 7-14 days for large format prints and canvas, and up to 3-4 weeks for Lamiframe mounts to be made and shipped to you.
