Yay for the forces of putting foot and a half pictures of your penis all over UW!

I don't think that'll be happening soon. Let me make a name formyself before I try to print my dick. A good name.. not a "hey, that's the guy the prints his dick" name.

Where are you having them printed? I'm betting you're forcing up the resolution, so whats your target dpi at 20"x30"? "no apparent loss of quality"... at what distance are you viewing them?

Printed them at The Camera Company. I'm not sure what the DPI they use is at that size but my understanding is that they don't rez-up the images until they go beyond the 20x30 mark. Plus I don't believe they have the rez-up software necessary to get huge prints had high quality. I just gave them the full .tif file and they gave me a nifty poster.

I wouldn't be surprised if they printed at 250 dpi. But I can't say. Maybe I'll ask one day if I can be present for the whole process.

It looks really good from about two feet away. When I put my nose to it I can see some blurring but nothing substantial.

I'll take another good look at it today in sunlight.. if the sun comes out. I probably shouldn't have posted this so soon but I got excited.

I looked again and got a second opinion. No loss of quality on this paper at that size.
