Enlarge First & Then Send to a Pro Lab to Print or Let the Lab to Deal With The Size
Sep 12, 2010

Hi Everyone,

I just want to ask a question. Consider I shot an image with my 12 mega pixel digital SLR and I now want it to be printed 100x75 cm. Which procedure is better:

1- After finalizing the Photoshop Edit, I enlarge the file by some professional plugin such as Alien Skin Blow UP or Genuine Fractals to the final size and then send it to some pro printing lab to print it.

2- After finishing the editing job in Photoshop do not enlarge the image size and just send it to the pro printing lab and ask them to print it 100x75.

Please note that by the question I mean the final quality, sharpness, etc and not the probable price diffrence.

Thanks for your kind advice.
