The Cool Trick for Turning Small Photos into Poster-Sized Prints

Generally speaking, shrinking the physical dimensions of a photo does not create a quality problem—you can make an 8x10" into a 4x5" with little visible loss of quality. It’s increasing the size of an image where you run into problems (the photo often gets visibly blurry, softer, and even pixelated). However, digital photography guru (and Photoshop User columnist) Jim DiVitale showed me a trick he swears by that lets you increase your digital camera images up to full poster size, with hardly any visible loss of quality to the naked eye, and I tell ya, it’ll make a believer out of you.
