[QUOTE="Eric Witte"]\nThe first few I found were like . I found a place called\nrivercitysilver for (.80 if I had 2). You don't happen to know\none in houston do you?[/QUOTE]\n\nHPI has Durst and Lightjet services, I've never used them and don't know\ntheir prices.\n[QUOTE]\nI've not been completely shooting in RAW yet. The one I'm doing is\njpg. Would it look any better with pro services? I'm redoing it. I\nimmediately converted to two 16-bit tiffs.[/QUOTE]\n\nI'm not sure if I follow what you did there, but the only way to create a\n16-bit TIF is directly from a RAW file. If you try to save a JPEG as\na16-bitTIF you've already lost the millions of unique colors present in the\nRAW file when the JPEG was compressed. A typical DSLR JPEG might contain a\nfew 100K unique colors, choosen from a 17 million color palette, left over\nfrom the millions orginally captured using a 68 billion color palette. So\nif I understand you correctly the anwser is no, you can't go from JPEG to\nTIF and expect better results than the starting JPEG.\n[QUOTE]\nAnd then upsized slightly.\nFrom 3072x2048 to 3600x2400 in photoshop using Bicubic. One of them\nI ran through Neatimage to remove noise. Then open up in Photoshop\nCS. Copy the faces and more detailed items back from the 2nd tiff. I\ndid the same thing for the Walgreens except I never bothered with TIFF\nor the resample. It looked great but I'm looking for a little closer\ncolor match.[/QUOTE]\n\nPlaces like Walgreens can print 24-bit with reasonable results, but so can\nmodern home inkjets. For the best photographs (not prints, technically,\nthese are developed emulsions) possible, usually called museum quality which\nwill be night and day from the previous, match an original 16-bit TIF with a\ntrue 36-bit pro printing service. Most agree that Lightjet photographs are\none of the best if not the best photos by a wide margin from digital files.\nYou can go a lot bigger than you might think too, if the photo is good and\nsharp with min artifacts, because the Lightjet has an optional mode that\nwill "de-jag" an image on the fly.
