    I saw in a painting/picture shop the other day that they can put your photo
    no matter how big on a huge canvas.It looked great same as the original it
    was by memory about 1200x1500mm just looking at it.
    So does this mean as long as you have a 6x4 you can do anything in the
    future?

    Current technology is able to make a 24"x36" (600mm x 900mm)print of
    surprisingly well defined detail from a gloss, 6"x4" print having a
    clearly defined and correctly focused image.

    Generally this requires the camera had a good quality lens although I
    have some examples which came from point&shoot cameras which are very
    acceptable at 16"x20" but start to soften over that.

    The quality of the final print relies on the ability of the scanner to
    realize all the available detail in the print. Sadly, many mini-lab
    prints are of such poor quality as to be useless for very large prints.

  4. A real estate photo company I worked for a few years ago had a machine that
    would scan a print or use a digital shot and make a "For Sale" board
    complete with photos and words, it was also used to make those picture sides
    on semi trailers and how big are they? (20 meters X 9 Meters) there was no
    limit too the size.

    In the promotion material for the printer there was a picture of someone
    enlarged to fit on the side of a building in the USA, about 20 stories high
