Events, meetings, people, and places seem to be made to capture them in the form of an image and leave them to remember. However, in some cases, the quality of the photo or its incorrect expansion during printing can be terrible.
Let’s deal with this problem together so that your photos look good both in small format and with large format printing, even with your lack of experience.
Quality is above all!
Let’s touch on image quality first, which is key to printing photographs. It is more challenging to get a frankly lousy picture because even the most straightforward phone will have a magic camera that will reach ten or more megapixels. Thus, we are doing a little better than in the days of our parents, when cameras were of questionable capabilities.
1) Determining the number of DPI photos
This term refers to the dots we see in a photograph when printed. Their value should not be lower than 150 units. Otherwise, the image will be very blurry, and the pixels of the picture will be visible. That is, it will be grainy.
However, we cannot always get such a figure to enlarge a photo since easily. The DPI value often cannot exceed 72 units on social networks. If this is the case for you, then don’t worry. Try following our tips further to increase photo resolution.
2) Enlarge image for print format
You must open this photo on your computer or laptop and then use the editor the manufacturer suggested you use, which opens automatically. If you want to make sure you get it right, use Photoshop.
However, the easiest step is to adjust the DPI value of the photo and save it that way. Here’s an example search path:
• find “Tools” in the picture menu;
• button “Adjust size”;
• click on “inches” for width and height and “pixels/inch” for resolution;
• uncheck the “Resample Image” indicator;
• set the resolution value to 300 pixels/inch;
• now it’s time to save the file;
3) Enlarge the image to the maximum possible format to avoid losing quality.
4) Try to cheat when typing
You need to print the resulting image and then scan what you get to do this. This way, you can enhance photo resolution at the expense of the scanner resolution.
5) Shoot Right
To get a good result and change the resolution of the picture, you need to shoot right away with a good camera in the correct format. RAW is great, but JPEG can be tricky. At a minimum, you will need to tune your camera for maximum quality all the time.
