Default upsizing in photoshop

my cams max res in 3:2 mode is 2272*1520, i want to print out pics with my dpp-sv55 (on it's way)that is set to 403 dpi. 403dpi =2418*1612. my questions is would i be better off upscaling my pics with photoshop to match the printers dpi or leave it as is and let the printer take care of it? thanks for the help

To be honest I dont know much about your printer. But I think that Photoshop, since its a pro graphic editor, should somehow be better than your printer!

One way to resize a photo - maybe you know it - is to change it to LAB COLOR - resize - back to ex. TIFF. Ive done that with very good results!

thanks for the info. what is the advantage of changing to tiff. i know a tiff has holds more detail but if it's a jpg to start with what makes this a better process than resizing the jpg? nice pics by the way

Thanks for the nice words!

Youre right. Its just because I save all mine in TIFF in my database.
You wont get at better qual if the Jpeg doesnt hold the informations. Youre right.

Once you get your printer, and figure it out, you should try QImage's 30 day trial http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage/ . It solves all of those head aches and more about printing.

if you want to enlarge your images above that of the original size i would suggest the use of genuine fractals 2.5 from lizard tech. this PS plugin allows for substantial enlargement, when used properly, with little to no discernable loss in image quality. it has been used for many years by pro photogs in the digital world.
