I often get asked how to prepare images for enlargements, so I thought it appropriate to prepare a little video on the subject.

In this video, we will cover how to enlarge and sharpen an image in Adobe Photoshop in order to prepare it for an enlargement print. We are using CS5, however, most prior versions of Photoshop and even Photoshop Elements should work pretty much the same way as well.

The entire video is just over 10 minutes. However, once you get familiar with the enlarging and sharpening process, you can prepare an image for enlargement in under a minute.

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot! I was printing some 18"x 24" Magnets and I kept getting low resolution alerts from the software online. After doing this the alert stated it was great resolution and the Image looks great.

1600 x 1200 pixes is not 6.18 megapixesl. It's 2.16. What you are seeing is the uncompressed file size, in megabytes. Upsampling doesn't shit to improve image quality when enlarging. You're interpolating which is making up intermediate pixels from those surrounding it. This is flat out bad advice.

To the comment about saving the file to JPEG.. you don't want to do that because you'll be throwing away a shit load of detailed info..safe it to TIFF if you're worried about other printers not able to read the file.
