Posted on: May 20, 2020    Posted by: Alex Liong-A-San

It’s actually a challenge that many photographers deal with when preparing their photos for enlarged printing. When you’re choosing photos for enlarged printing, you have to consider the color profiles, ratios, and even the file formation. But you also need to consider how to keep that high resolution and quality for large scale printing. If you’re unsure of how to do improve the resolution and quality of your photo, then we can help you. Continue reading below and learn about the different tips on how to properly prepare your photo for enlarged printing.

Why Would You Want to Enlarge Your Image?

First off, why would you want to enlarge your photos?

Well, there are many reasons why you’d want to. One of the main ones is that you can create a really big print from one of your photographs. Such large prints are perfect as gifts or can even be placed on your home walls for decoration.

Another reason is that, sometimes, you need to enlarge your photos for a work portfolio. Your place of business may require you to submit or demonstrate enlarged photos of your work in order to demonstrate it better for review.

You would also need to enlarge them if you accidentally took a photograph with low resolution. The new enlarged photo would allow you to focus on areas with low quality.

Increase The Resolution

When you’re dealing with a low-quality image that you need enlarged, you often still have to deal with the low resolution. If you have a camera that has a good amount of megapixels in it, you probably don’t need to worry about this. But if not, we advise you to increase or decrease the DPI of the image, setting it at 300. This can be achieved using any photo editor.

On your photo editor, simply edit the photos settings. One of the setting tabs might already be labeled as “resolution” by which then you can easily edit your photo from there. There should be an amount input section for resolution and if it isn’t already at 300 DPI, change it to that.

Try Avoiding JPEGs

For any graphics company you seek service from, they’ll tell you of which file types they’ll need to print your photos. In most instances, they will never ask for a JPEG.

It’s advised that you never use a JPEG because these file types are deemed as “lossy” formats. What this means is that these file types usually take information away from a photo. You won’t be able to improve the quality or resolution with a JPEG. And when you save a JPEG at its highest quality, information from the brightest areas are dropped.
