How big can I enlarge a 240 dpi pic
on Nov 5, 2010 at 9:19:43 am

I have some product shots done on the Canon 5d Mark II. After doing the touch up work in Photoshop the pics are at 240dpi at about 90megs and dimensions are at 5616X3744.

How big can I enlarge this type of image? I'm looking to fill a wall that is about five feet wide by ten feet high. I won't be doing it myself but sending the files to a printing company.

Thanks;

Your image is 5616 pixels wide. You want the enlargement to be 10 ft (120 inches) wide. So, by calculation, without loss of quality in your original image, you'd have to reduce the dpi to 46.8 dpi. I would try to keep your dpi around 100 dpi for best appearance. So, you will have to scale your image up to do so... unless 46.8 dpi works for you and your image won't be viewed up close.
