Photo Enlargement Question

Recommended Posts

Alright here's my problem. A few years ago I CPR'd a 12# plus walleye and I'd really like to get a good, quality blow up of the photos I have of it. The problem, the biggest digital size I have is 384*512. Is there any possible way I can get what I want out of a picture that small? If so, where do I go to get that done? Here is the photo:

Thanks!

ff, you can probably get a decent 5x7 out of it but not much more. If you take the digital file into an actual photo print store (not super WalMart) you can ask them how big it can go, and then you can have them experiment a bit to see how large it goes before you start not to like the quality.

Since you don't list your location, we don't know where to recommend you go.

I have some software that will do some enlarging, but I don't know how far it will go before you get to much grain. If you want I could try for youa and see.

Do a Google search for reshade. It's a software program designed to increase the resolution of a photo without losing much detail. I've tried it and it does do a pretty decent job, within limits.

Actually if you go on line to Ritz or one of the other picture services when you upload them they will tell you the largest size it will print.

Some of the up-rezing software works as X and Paul mentioned but most likely you will not be able to get much more out of your file.

That would be great if you could do that. I'll try a few of the other options and see how it turns out. Thanks!

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
