Hello everyone. I hope that some of you can help me out.
My company is opening a retail store for RV and Camping equipment. We are trying to create 6 large posters that will be 20 ft. Wide by 7 ft. Tall around the walls inside the store. I have images that are 4.6 inches Wide at 1800 dpi. I know this is a HUGE Up-Res from such a small image. Is it possible to do it without too much loss?
We purchased Genuine Fractal and have been messing around with it. The printer we are working with needs the file at half the print size at 300 dpi, so this would be 10 feet by 3.5 feet. I simply took the original image, cropped it to the correct proportions to match the final image requirements, and slowly began to up the image size with Genuine Fractal at about 150% at a time. We then gave the printer the final image for a test print, but the results were pretty dissapointing.
My question is, are we going about this the correct way? If not, what way should we do it? Any tips, suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance guys.
