Upsizing a D2Hs NEF file

    Don't know if I'm posting in the correct forum but I am looking for some advice on upsizing a D2Hs file for printing. The file is in uncompressed NEF format and I'd like to print it to 11" x 16" at 300 dpi. What's the recommended sharpening technique do I need to use?

    No, it's no billboard size but I thought there could be better ways of doing it other than the one I'm familiar under Nikon Capture 4.4.2. Plugin in CS2? I'm open to suggestions. I am Photoshop illiterate and would welcome steps on how to get the required output. Thanks.

    Have you cropped the image at all yet
    Are you sure about the size you want. 11x16 is an odd size.
    Now that really doesn't matter that much if the image will holld that crop.
    Let me know what you have done so far
    When I save my raw file from NC 4.4.2 I save as a tiff to go to PS.

    I would interpolate in NX or Capture as output must be better using the bayer data rather than pixels available in TIFF. NX allows setting of dpi and size hence works out pixel size for you.
