Printing LARGE

My wife just told me that my blog is getting boring. She said, “You need more photos!” So, with apologies to those who have seen this image 10,000 times, I bring you my favorite shot from our last Bali trip. Why am I subjecting you to this shot again? Well, because I have decided to have it printed large – 44 x 46 inches, to be exact – and that means that I have been working with the image a lot in PhotoShop lately preparing it for output at Pictopia.

I had a proof print made of a small section of the finished print at the final resolution. It looks great, so now I’m really anxious to see the final print. More on all this soon!

    Why pictopia vs. ofoto? What resolution did you decide on? Cindy

    Ofoto tops out at 20″ x 30″. The ONLY way to get larger prints is through Pictopia. Also, the quality of the prints from Pictopia far surpasses those from Ofoto.

    Hey Dude,

    I must say that your pictures are some of the very best I have seen posted on the net. They are clean, the colour is rich and not a lot of artifacts (from Jpeg).

    I must ask which camera you are using?

    Keep up the good work,

    Craig

    Most of the images on this site were shot with the mostly fabulous Canon G3. Shots like this one, however were shot on Fujichrome film with a Mamiya 7. The resulting transparency was scanned on a Nikon 8000 film scanner. The 320 megabyte TIFF was manipulated in PhotoShop to produce what you see here. More on this subject when I get the 44″ x 46″ print back from the lab.
