Re: [Gimp-user] New User Need Help Enlarging/Enhancing Image

It is a great sunrise and kudos for being there and catching it.
Ofnuts has pointed out some problems and one of the main ones I see is that it is not sharp at any resolution. Putting it on canvas will make it even less sharp.

However, try a print on paper at 240 dpi for a 16 x 20 inch print. See if you like it. I assume at your photo shop paper prints are cheaper than prints on canvas.

You can scale the image yourself using GIMP. Go Image > Scale image and type in 240 dpi. Or type "16" in the width dialogue. Or, try 150 dpi 26x20, your call. Save it as a PNG file to avoid more compression artefacts.

P.S. Public libraries, school boards and senior's centres often have good beginners courses in how to use your camera. The public institutions are more like to have courses geared to the very beginner. Just a thought.

If 48x24 is not an option, I at least need to know realistically the largest I
can go and keep the integrity of the photo.
