Hi all,
What is the maximum size that you can print out for 4, 5, and 6 Megapixels photos?

I need to print out photos and make them poster size. I only have a 5mp camera.
What is the size that I can get without major pixelation?

Jackco, that is a link to a lengthy discussion on the subject. I hope something in there answers the question!

if by poster you mean 30x20 then i can maybe help a little

i have had some printed out at 30x20 of my 8mega pixel olympus e300 and the results are stunning, i tried to get some done off my old 4 mega pixel cam and got a warning that results would be poor that size

the 30x20 from the e300 stands up to very close inspection the detail is amazing

id assume that any online labs software would warn if u where exceeding the size camera was capable of producing.
