I have a file I would like to have professionally enlarged to a 36" x 24" canvas print
The photo file when displayed in the PSE9 window shows the size of my file to measure 58" by 42".
Is it possible to set the PSE display window to show that file in a scaled down actual 36" by 24"displayed image so I can see the approximate loss of detail in the finished canvas print I plan on having made.
Also I notice that the border measurements are no to scale. How can I adjust the view so that when I view an actual 12" segment, the image will actually measure 12" with a ruler?
Thank you for your help!
The sizes which you reference do not have the same aspect ratio. You plan to end up with a 3:2 ratio, and will have to crop the original to conform.
Use the Zoom tool (Z) to accommodate your screen.
Go to View>check rulers to open the rulers to confirm the measurements visually.
The info palette is very helpful for this as well.
You should check with your lab to be sure that the resolution of your picture file is sufficient to assure a good canvas print.
Please post your progress.
As always thank you for your nessage.
If the PSE measurements let's say in a 16x20 image that is displayed at 100% on the screen looks sharp does that approximate the quality of a 16x20 print made from the photo file?
the file shows a 1589 x 1181. If I extrapolate the conventional wisdom formula - 1589x1181 and divide that by 16x20 i arrive at 5864 and if i get the square root of this I get only 76 pixels per inch which is about half of the minimum 150 ppi which I have seen on these forums.
Is my reasoning correct or am I missing something?? Thanks for your help
What you see on screen are pixels.
