Enlarging techniques, help with a clean 600% increase requested
Sep 15, 2013

I've got a 6mp image I took off an old D70s. Beginning resolution is 2000x3000. I'm looking to increase the resolution to something near 4050x20000 with a dpi of 300. A year or two ago I spent a day researching enlarging techniques and compared enlarging programs. I'd got some PSDs I created using a stepping technique using alien blow up, then using a light sharpening, light noise reduction and continuing that in 10% increments. My main question here is: is there a new preferred technique or program that is top of the line? How's LR5's enlarging algorithm? I read (a year ago) about a but can't seem to find more info on it. The end goal is a 17"x69" 300-400dpi image.

Thoughts?
