Hi.

I am going to make a large graphic about 10 feet x 9 feet using 150 resolution. I have this image in 300ppi that is roughly 12×8 inches. Can this image cover the background of the large graphic without looking too fuzzy?

Thank you.

depends on how back you stand. .. :)…400m might be OK

To resize to 9x10ft from a 12x8ins image will yield poor results.

But try it and see for yourself. You can get fractal software that’ll help, a bit….or you can import it to a vector program and convert it to a vector then you can scale as much as you like…but you will still lose quality during the conversion.

That’s what I thought. Darn. I’ll just have to make something similar. Thanks Chris.

Okay sorry another question..

I would like to scale this graphic down 50% (60" x 54") at 300ppi. PS is saying the file is 1GB already & I haven’t even done anything to it yet! Should I go even smaller?
