Re: Kendall, Rick...file preparation?

Rick, Kendall, others who produced the files from which the 30x48" prints were made...

could you tell us more please how you prepared the files. For example,
From SPP, after basic processing, did you use another program to upsize?
Or did you print from JPEG or TIFF produced by SPP?
Same size JPEG? or??

I think Rick did either same or double size JPG from SPP.

I took a more complex route, I output from SPP -2.0 sharpening same size 16-bit TIFF. Then I up-sampled in Photoshop bicubic smoother. Then finally I applied some sharpening from the Nik output sharpener...

But I'm not sure there was much of a difference between our two approaches in the end, to be honest. The last step sharpening should in theory be a little nicer. You'd probably have to print one image with both approaches to really see the subtle differencees.
