In thich case the quality would surely suffer. HI - Here's a thought. Optical resolution is a question of scale - i.e., seen up close a 10 x 12 image wants a lot of ppi - or printer dots per inch. A billboard, designed to be seen from a considerable distance doesn't need that high a resolution; instead of printing and building a file at 1200 ppi per inch you might design for output at only 75 ppi, perhaps less. At a distance it would look just fine. This is a RIP question. Try Genuine Fractals to upsize one of your 30 - 50 MB files - but at a lower resolution. How big will it go without resampling? Some of the trade mags have printer ads in the back - they would answer your questions... Cheers, Mel - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
