Re: maintaining 'grain' and-or a graphic look

Hi's funny you mention this now. This past weekend I started playing with just this part of my processing. I blew up a raw file to the max size a printer I work with can do, 130cm. Then checked it out in photoshop. Mush in places. Back in Lighroom I increased shapening a bit, and played with grain size, and amount. This brought the results back to a degree of quality I think I'm ok with, on screen. Now to do some test prints.

I didn't think to enlarge the image this much, but what the hell. It's a test right now. Gone up from about 4300 pixels on the long edge to just over 12,000. Because of the nature of my images this might be possible for the series I'm working on. Still, I do think I'd benefit from more pixels, 24/36...

thank you kindly for detailing all does help me wrap my head around all this...
