    i got a nice group shot of my nephew and a few of his friends on the side line
    of there football game 2 weeks ago.
    i would like to have it printed out the biggest size print possible where it
    would still look good .

    as a full size raw image @ 16 bit the file size as a tiff is 38 mb , @ 8 bit it
    can be saved as 2-3 mb jpeg .
    the link below is the jpeg down to 72 res .

    ive printed it out @ sams club as an 8x0 and it looks great .

    anyone recamend a place for big prints ? and way to go about it, send large
    tiff on cd?

    constructive comments welcome on the picture

  2. Well....we need to know the number of pixels to be more precise...and a lot
    depends on how its printed, how good your eyes are, and how high your
    standards...but it looks like about a 5 mp camera so you should be happy
    with an 11x14...with the use of a product like Genuine Fractals or using
    other techniques you could even get a decent poster.

  3. While there are rules for this, then tend to fall apart at about 11x14.
    People don't look at a 30x40 print as closely as they do a 4x6 so you can
    have a much lower pixel count at the larger sizes. Try making one 8x10 foot
    and you will see what I mean.

    I do not know if they will use RAW. Send best quality JPG and they will tell
    you if the size you want will do.

    I am so tired of hearing that you cant get good looking large images from 6 mp
    cameras. I am going to go ahead and put my money were my mouth is Heres the
    deal. I will give you a
    FREE 24x36 dye print from your Jpeg file. (I am assuming it is 2000x3000
    resolution roughly)

    All i need is your file e-mailed to me, and your address and I will send it out
    the next day for sure.

    In return for this I would like you to come back and post about the qualty..
    sound fair?

    Hope that Helps!
