Interpolation for prints

Discussion in 'General Technical Discussion' started by Rich Gibson, Feb 22, 2005.

  1. I'm aware of a number of different ways of increasing the size of an image for printing:

    PSCS: Print with preview-dragging the image to fill a large print paper
    PCSC: Adjust image size with bicubic (and other) interpolation methods
    PSCS-GF: Using genuine fractals to increase the image
    Qimage: Mike Chaney's package uses another method of interpolation
    Fred Miranda Plug-in for PSCS

    So....any recommendations? Are they all about the same, as I suspect?

    I've read (from Yves, I think) that then reducing them back reduces noise.

    Help before I spend more money on this addictive hobby!

    Thanks, Rich
     
  2. Well Rich I use Fred Miranda's plug in and it is fast and easy to use. I also use his plug in for downsizing.
     
  3. Is the downsizing plug-in "Web Presenter"?

    I have always used Qimage for u[rezzing my prints

    Once you get the hang of how it works, it's an excellent tool, and imo, the very best printing SW out there. For downsizing for web etc, I use FM's Web Presenter Pro. I always follow Ron R's Ebook recomendations of downsizing in either (multiples of)10, or 25, or 33% amts. For instance, I'll tell it to give me, say, 40% of original, then check it's size in PS, and undo/redo as necessary.
     
  5. Yes it is and I use it on nearly every image that I get ready for the web.
