Prints
Aug 23, 2012

I'm interested in getting a print made and have some questions.

To begin with here's what I want to print:

The original is 50mb and 17403x3687.

I'd like to get a rather large print made and am trying to figure out what the largest viable print size would be with a crisp-nongrainy image. In trying to come up with an estimated size, I viewed the picture on screen, zooming in until I detected graininess, then dialed it back a bit. I have a 24" monitor, so I started at one side of the image, then dragged the image the full length of the monitor.... I came up with 74"! Now I don't think I'd print it that large, but I was surprised! I had 48" in mind, but what about the 74" figure? How do you determine the size print for your image?

Moving on, with whom do you have your prints made? local print shops, online (snapfish), or 'big box' photo shops (Walgreens/Target)? Target will do a 'poster' for $9, anyone try this?

I'm not going for museum quality here, I just want something with true colors decent quality and a reasonable price.

thanks!
