If you upsized the file to print it larger, and then downsized the same file again (rather than printing the second, smaller print from the original smaller file) you have interpolated twice, which will reduce the detail in the file, especially if the upsizing and downsizing are to dimensions which aren't multiples of each other. For instance, to double check this, I took a picture at a typical web resolution of 72ppi, and upsized it in Photoshop to 130ppi, and then back down to 72ppi. When compared at 200% magnification onscreen, the up-and-down-sized image is noticeably less sharp. Mitch V. - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
