I know I've been gone a long time but I've run into a prob that needs PSC expertise.

I have a screenshot of an internal website at 1920x1080 that the biz owner wants to print on a 2'x3' signage at 300DPI.

What's the best method to get the image to this size without it looking like blurry crap? Confused

Short answer: You can't

Resolution cannot be added to an image. It will always look crappy when scaled up that much. Sorry.

Depending on the image, you may be able to run some filters that can emulate a cleaner result...

Apparently the buck has been passed off to the marketing department to worry about. Thanks anyway everyone! Very Happy

Download a free 3 month trial of the program "Perfect Resize 7.5" where you can increse the size of a file up to 1000%. I use it all the time and have made 2'x3' canvas prints from a 3.2 Mega Pixel camera.
