Photo Enlargement Question

6 posts in this topic

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 tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
