    Camera is 3.3megpix Sony.
    Image is 1600 x 1200

    To what size would I be able to increase the image for printing without
    major loss?

    Will need to print to a poster size image.

    Have _Genuine Fractals_ but haven't tried using it yet.

    There is no answer to this question
    What you find acceptable may not be acceptable to me.
    Poster size isn't a standard size, Also only you knows where this poster
    will hang and at from distance it will be viewed.
    Use GF, print and judge by yourself.
    (You shouldn't have bought GF, there are better and much cheaper solutions
    around)

    If you go to fredmiranda.com you will be able to compare GF to Stair
    Interpolation.
    Don't forget to compare the price also!

    Don't.

    Use film instead - ideally 5"x4", slide for prederence.

    Wrong answer.
    The OP said he had a file to enlarge, not a subject to shoot.

  8. I can't say it's better...but it's much less expensive!

    Open an image you want res up.

    Open the Actions palette and select "New Set".

    Name it "Creeping Increase" or whatever you like.

    Now select New Action and call it "1.5 Increase"

    Next go to Image/Size and put a check in "Resample" and "Constrain
    Proportions"

    with Bicubic and change the width drop down to "percent" and enter 110.

    Now go to "Image Size" do the same 3 more times.

    Then "Stop Recording"



    Next "New Action" Name it "2.0 Increase"

    Now "Edit/Purge All"

    Next select the "1.5 Increase" in the Actions Palette

    and press the Play button.

    select the "1.5 Increase" again,

    press the Play button again.

    Stop Recording.



    "New Action" Name it 3.0 Increase.

    "Edit/Purge All"

    Select and play the "2.0 Increase"

    Select and play the "1.5 Increase"

    Stop Recording.



    "New Action" Name it 4.0 Increase.

    "Edit/Purge All"

    Select and play the "3.0 Increase"

    Now "Image Size" 110 percent.

    And again "Image Size" 110 percent.

    Stop Recording.



    Save the Action.

    Or you could download 'FFrank's Less Loss Resize' from the Adobe Studio
    Exchange site, it works fairly well and it's free:
