    All,
    I would like to have a photo 'converted' to black and white and englarged -
    its a shot from my honeymoon and I would like to give this to my wife in a
    nice frame to form part of a gift for our first wedding aniversary.
    Its a photo taken in the Maldives in decent sunshine - taken using a canon
    500n, sigma 28-135 ASP lens, handheld, with fuji superia 200 film. The shot
    looks sharp to the naked eye on the original 6x4 print.
    My question is, what is the max size I could hope to get this enlarged to
    without losing quality and without grain effecting the pic ??

    I know this is a difficult question to answer without seeing the photo, but
    ball-park estimates would be useful.

    Thanks for the advice - anyone know where on the 'UK highstreet' would be
    best for this - boots / jessops / bonusprint / Klick (!!).. ??

    Don't know about in store, but the biggest Jessops online can go to is
    15x10 (?). I have recently started using
    http://www.photoartistry.co.uk/default.asp as they can print up to 44"
    wide and 40ft long !
    Plus they print linen, posters, fine art paper, and canvas (with or
    without stretcher frame), a glossy 16x20 will set you back all of £8.00 plus
    p+p (about a fiver more).

    Your scans need to be as big as possible up to a maximum 50mb (a
    massive jpg !)

    Good luck.........Adam

  4. I have had good luck at Boots, but that is no guarantee.
