This is probably simple but I can't get it. I use LightRoom 4 and and am trying out Perfect Resize 7.5. I would like to visualize on the monitor how the clarity of the eventual printed image will look at a given enlargement size and pixel count before sending it to the lab. In other words, as the size of an image is enlarged/resized issues of focus, film grain etc become more obvious. How can I determine how these issues will appear as the image is made larger/resized? Any help will be really appreciated.

The default print resolution Lightroom 4 = 240ppi  and screen =72ppi, your  screen can not reproduce the the printed output.

You have not stated final output size.

Prints as they get lager do have a minimum viewing distance (which photographer's ignore or forget)

A lager print will be not sharp or even blur viewed inches away where at the proper viewing distance would as you created it
