This question already has an answer here:
I have a question regarding the large format printing and the image sent to the printer. This is not a duplicaten, I've checken the other possible questions and did not find the response there. I'm interesten in a large print for in a house, what resolution to take and where to find those kind of images.
Imagine I found a photo on internet which I would like to print out in a large format => 150cm x 120cm.
The photo itself is 70cm x 50cm, 250dpi, 9Mb, type: jpeg
What will happen if I force the image to print in 150 x 120cm or even larger size, will I see the pixels or some other abnormalities in close range? If I'll upscale the image the DPI will be dropping and having a photo with 150x120cm and 75dpi is not good for honing it on the wall.
What the minimal original size of an image can be so that it can be scaled to larger size without any distortion?
Another point is, I want to print on matte cotton canvas ...
And where can I find that kind of photo's, as even on paid stockphoto's sites the resolution is around 4000 / 5000px with 300dpi.
Thanks for the reply
