Hi fellas, does anyone know of somewhere or someone who can enlarge digital photos as i am considering framing a couple to hang on my wall. Not sure what size but thinking of around 48in x 32in.
Cheers

Most high street printing places should be able to help.
You will need a very high quality image to start with, or as mentioned above, the image will start to show pixilation(look all blocky)

Biggest width I can do on my photo printer is 36inches wide and 25 Metres long. Depending on the supplied image I have done them to 15ft wide and 35ft long on my solvent printer onto vinyl but in three parts without it going too grainy but it really depends on the files you have. Rule of thumb a 5MP picture can go up to 36" pretty well.

I have been using a fuji finepix s9600 which is 9MP. Does anyone know if it needs to be on special paper and what sort of cost.

Photo satin or Photo gloss with gloss being the most common although I always recomend the satin as you won't get as much glare from lights off it and the finish in my opinion looks better.

9MP is more than enough for a high quality print.

Of course Spotty, PM sent.

Also, someone asked me to do a sattelite picture of a lake near Reading, I found the lake and have a digital image of it But I forgot who it was, I've looked through the forum for the post or it might have been on one of my pms that I deleted... DOH!

Porky and Cooperman were asking about that Jim....... with it being Reading I would assume the latter.
