But can most Nikon and Sony lenses do it justice?

    My Epson driver for my US Epson R2880 shows it as Super B (13 x 19) &
    A3+ (13 x 19).
    My Canon i9900 only shows it as A3+ (13 x19), no Super B with the Canon driver.

    Argghhhh!

    My 13x19" setting was set up by me on my Epson driver.

    I just reconfirmed and Apple just updated the Epson drivers for OSX 10.6.6;
    I have Epson, Super B (13 x 19) & A3+

    Canon A3+

    My Red River paper only lists size at 13 x 19.
    I have a Canon Photo Paper Pro packed with two sheets remaining and
    that shows A3+/13"x19". It has an additional label showing the
    dimension differences between A3 & A3+, A3 shown as 297mm x 420mm & A3+
    as 329mm x 483mm.

    I can't do borderless prints on custom user defined sheet sizes, only
    the default standard ones. This is an Epson R1800.

    I take small crops from my and blow them up.
    BTW not all of us stick to 13x19.

    True, I print many more 5x7, 8x10, & 11x17. 13x19 is my extreme max for
    home print size.
    Sometimes that might be done with a crop from the original file and
    resized. However the final quality of an up-sized print from a crop is
    going to depend of quite a few different factors. You have to be quite
    selective in choosing which crops are worthy of up-sizing, or are best
    left at 4x6, or 5x7, and might even be pushing things at 8x10.

    That is when software such as Genuine Fractals becomes valuable.

    I hope this doesn't start a holy war. Do you think GF produces a better
    image than CS5?
    I have not seen any difference in the results.

    I think GF, which is now Perfect Resize 7, has a better algorithm for
    resizing enlargement of greater than 200% than CS5.
    CS5 is just fine for most of us, but if I were to make a serious/severe
    crop and wanted to have a "large" print GF/Perfect Resize is probably
    the better way to go to get a decent result.

    As a stand alone app it is a bit pricy, it is much more appealing when
    bundled in OnOne's Photo Suite of plug-ins.

    thanks,

    I had tried it a few years ago, but saw no real advantage. I will give
    it a shot and see if it works better for me.

    I bought a couple rolls of 13" wide paper and have enjoyed doing some
    prints in a longer format with 16:9 ratio like HD video. It sure is a
    hassle cutting those sheets though and my Epson R1800 is the most
    finicky thing about feeding paper - especially if it's curled! Argh.

    I know what you mean. The problem becomes worse as you get near the end
    of the roll.
