    Long story short, I have some photos that I want to get poster prints of. The online printshops say there is not enough resolution for a quality print. I don't do this often enough to make it worth buying a program, and from what I have read it can be an arduous process without one. I don't have days to spend doing trial and error. Anybody here have a suggestion.

    The short answer is "no"...you cannot increase resolution. Basically, if the original picture doesn't have enough information (pixels), you cannot add more pixels after the fact.

    You may be able to get a program that can fake this by interpolation (fractals), but even that can only do so much.

    You can make 'em smaller but you can't make 'em bigger!

    That's kinda what I was reading. Guess I'm stuck with 16 x 20 instead of 20 x 30s for this deal. Oh well, can't blame me for trying.

    Come on now, no need to be coy, you know you want them boobs and arses bigger, perv. Use photoshop and increase the resolution then fill in the gaps. You pervs disappointment me. Take some time to learn Photoshop, it's not hard. Learn your file types as well.

    Depending on how sharp the original picture is the resoloution required for 16x20 should be OK for 20x30, you have to remember that poster sized prints are not supposed to be viewed at arms length but from something like ten feet away, so a lower resoloution will still seem sharp.

    That's a good point these "posters" should still look sharp at a distance, perv.

    Try Bicubic & Bilinear for increasing the size.

    PSP even has that ability. :ross:
