Hello there. I recently shot some images on a Canon 5d Mark II using what I think was the largest RAW file size (the image is 24.5MB with dimensions of 3744 × 5616).
What I'm trying to do is make a full size movie poster (27" x 40" at 300dpi).
So, here's my process:
I open the image in Photo RAW and save it as a TIF with these settings:
THEN, I make a separate file in Photoshop with the settings for my poster: 27" x 40" at 300dpi.
Then I place my TIF into that document and it's smaller than the canvas. When I blow it up and look at it at 100%, it has of course lost resolution and looks pixelated. What the hell happened here? Did I not shoot at the highest RAW settings or am I missing something?
