    I use a Canon 10D, digital SLR camera for day to day work. A Photoshop
    file from this camera ends up about 18 megabytes in size... Just enough
    to print 7.5 inches wide photo at 400 dpi.

    By using a highly refined interpolation algorithm, these files can be
    up-sampled to yield really well defined, clear and sharp photographs 30
    inches wide and wider.

    Software is now available for use by Photographers which will enlarge
    digital images where previously it was not possible. The first of these
    programs to became freely available was Genuine Fractals. Another more
    recent application is 'Imagener'

    http://www.imagener.com/index2.html

    Outperforms All Other Photo Enlargement Methods

    Imagener's Progressive, Progressive++, and Unlimited enlargement methods
    add pixels into your photos and images during the enlargement process in
    a way that preserves the image detail. No other product on the market,
    even those costing hundreds more, has this technology.


    Used By Investigation and Homeland Security Agencies

    Imagener is helping homeland security professionals improve image
    content identification while holding down costs simultaneously.
    Surveillance photos often need to be digitally improved and enlarged to
    be useful. Imagener has been used to enlarge these images and because it
    prevents "pixelation" or jagged edges when magnified, Imagener allows
    better identification of evidence in surveillance images and photos.

    So Super size Me!

    Or you could use the sophisticated bicubic algorithms already built into
    Photoshop to produce better images than the website shows and it doesn't
    cost you anything :p

    Must be a totally crap camera then, my 6MP D-SLR will give 12x18 prints with
    excellent detail with nothing extra done.

    Don't take it too seriously - Its off the web so it must be true, by a
    well known identity as your email indicates, this contradicts recent
    ramblings.

    Yes, simply because 400ppi is more than most printers can really make use of
    anyway.
    However 6MP will only give about 166ppi at 12"x18", definitely insufficient
    for real image quality.
    That would be a definite case for some pixel enhancement IMO.

    Ahhh, yes. The mouth from the south spews out another funny... Ha, ha,
    ha
    If you had no one to target with your lame posts, you'd have zilch to
    post about.
    You really are a pathetic individual. Does your mother know what you
    are up to on her computer? First you try the smart Alec tack of
    bullshit, wanting to purchase some of my products and when I offer you
    them for free... Go all shy on me.

    Now your dopey mind decides that you'll have a go at my enlargement
    posts you found digging around looking for dirt on me that doesn't
    exist. I'm flattered you are so enthralled with me and my
    Enlargements. I'm equally amazed that someone who claims to be a
    photographer (hobby or Pro - no one know) simply can't comprehend
    someone like me could actually come up with a method to enlarge
    digital images, much less use it daily to run a business. Just send me
    your residential address and I'll send you a poster 600mm wide and 900
    high, enlarged from a 20D with kit lens image - free too! Although if
    you are as big a loud mouth as the rest of the sheep, you'll go quiet
    on this offer too.

    It's a really odd situation that since I offered to send people
    evidence of my claims in about 2005 (is that the date Mark?), only two
    people took me up on the offer yet all you sheep keep pouring it on as
    if Doug bashing is becoming a new Aussie Juvenile sport. What exactly
    is your problem Rob? Boredom or are you just looking to do a little
    "tall Poppy" bashing? IF you really want to know about my enlargement
    algorithm from a very well respecte4d American fine art Photographer,
    Read up on what Gordon Moat had to say about the sample I sent him:
    http://www.allgstudio.com/technology.html under "printing" Then if you
    want to know something ... Ask me. Otherwise get off my case or I'll
    put in a complaint that you are stalking me.

    The 6mp Canon 10D is DEFINATELY SUFFICIENT to make AWESOME photo
    quality enlargements to 12"x18".

    So strange, I just downloaded todays posts and first i read was about
    d-mac giving away free clocks.

    I then read this thread and this post and I thought straight away of one
    of d-mac's quotes.

    Why not just send the file and we can print it ourself?

    Also, what is the big deal enlarging a 20D image? I have a 12"x18"
    pic on my wall at work taken with a 2.1mp Kodak and it looks fine at
    normal viewing distances.

    It was! Although he didn't think it was good for his own image.

    Fine, we all have different ideas about quality requirements.
    I doubt you will find a *lot* of agreement for 160ppi as "awesome", but I
    sure don't care what you do.
