Hi,
does exist any tool that elaborates a file(photo) of good quality to be printed in a poster size like 50x70cm or 70×100 cm?

Any tips?

Thanks,
Alan

Do you mean by assembling a pile of 8x10s? Or do you just want to take the file to a commercial printer and have him do it?

1. Get a good photo, ready for whatever print size you wish

2. Send to a photolab then you have it.

And the larger the print the larger/cleaner the photo should be. And what I mean by ready.

1. Load the photo to Photoshop and be very careful with whatever command you may apply to the photo.

2. ZOOM IN as closest as you can be able to spot the ugly spot (200-300 – 400% ?), and the larger you print the more you may need to review the area you touch.

3. If you can spot something and most likely the PRINTER should be able to see, and often print that area (spot whatever you see) darker then you may see on monitor. And as I mention, usually only the area you edit.

So yes, you can print 70x100cm or even larger and it can turn out stunning too, but you must be prepared, and may want to READ the thread others are talking about Enlargement which you may need.

Thanks,
Alan
