I had a 15x10 printed at Photobox and it turned out great. They give a rating when you upload your photo. When I ordered the 15x10 it was rated as 10/10 Excellent Quality. I adjusted the size of print to see what rating it would give me at 30x20and it gave 8/10 Good Quality. I haven't had one printed at this size yet, but I plan to one day.

A quick question, does doing upsizing in 5/10% increments vs. just doing it once (using the new upsize sharpen or whatever it is called in new PS) does it make any differnece in the print?

Hi,

Does anyone know what is the absolute largest print you can produce using the Rebel XT without degredation of picture quality (pixilation)? This will help me decide what printer to buy.

Josh :O
In my photograpghy class, a lady had a poster printed from her 4mp digicam and I was amazed at the output and I think she only paid $10 or so. So XT should keep you happy for whatever you plan to do. Just remember for really big prints, you are not looking at them up-close.

In the old PS doing multiple 5% increments produced better results than a single upsize. Don't actually understand why.
I have not tried using the new PS CS2 resizieng features yet. Guess I should try it someday may save a pile of work.

I have prints fromwallets up to 24x36 from the XT and even at that size, they are pretty impressive viewing a few feet away. I have two 10x15's that I didn't interpolate at all. I also have a 16x20, 16x24, 18x24, and 24x36 that were all resized (bicubic smoother)to 300ppi attheir dimensions and then sharpened with USM or Smart Sharpen. I think 24x36 is stretching it a littlebit, but if it's not going to be "examined" from mere inches, then it is acceptable.

My opinion...20x30 is the largest print size you should expect to be able to get out of an XT image. I've seen 20x30 prints from a D2X and a 1DS-II...there's definately a difference.
