280 m^2 is big, scratch that its enormous in size. It is not that its not possible to fill, it is. It is just that this is a very big task, your going to need quite the team to pull this off. You are going to have some logistical problems on a quite big scale. This is no ordinary graphics design job, it is a engineering job. Get the manufacturers and ...

How big is this thing supposed to be? Because what you describe isn't much larger than a sheet of paper. This sounds like the sort of thing you would be doing in vector anyway, If he is going to have it printed on vinyl then it must be done in vector format in illustrator or Corel draw. After you have done the art in vector the size makes no difference ...

It's not entirely clear where you are getting that file size from. If you are referring to the size shown in the status bar at the bottom of your document, that isn't the final size of a JPG exported from the document, that gives information about the print size and estimated document size including layers etc. If you need to export a JPG and file size is ...

Before starting, look at the original graphics you're trying to emulate. You'll see the areas of colour are flat and bright because the shapes themselves - believe it or not! - are straight edged areas. The only time you get the pixellating effect is when the lines are slightly off-straight, sloping. So you need a program that emulates this from the ...

When you are working with so few pixels you have to make every pixel count. I doubt an automated scaler will achive that with satisfactory quality. My advice would be to downscale to the size required as normal, then zoom in, turn on the grid and go over your image pixel by pixel cleaning it up. To enhance the retro look you should also work with a limited ...

Here is a somewhat easy method to convert full size images to pixel graphics. Starting image To begin, go to Image -> Image Size. Change the Resample method to Nearest Neighbor, this will keep the hard edges. You can zoom into the preview on the left to get a good idea of what your end result will look like. You can see I'm at 500% in this example. Next ...

More to compliment Luciano's answer than counter it: Another thing to take into account is connection speed and bandwidth - you don't want to be firing a massive image over the web if you can get away with it. One option is to have two versions of the image, one acting as a thumbnail and the other as the full sized image. Though JPEGs have compression, it'...

There is no way to scale up an image without losing quality. In that case, you should scale your image down. So instead of saving it as 300x300, save it as 600x600. Search for good optimization / compression methods, maybe use PNG instead (because sometimes a PNG-8 compressed can be smaller than a JPEG). You probably need to use a different tool to ...
