Improving the Existing File to Survive Magnification

If the image is unacceptable once resized and no retouching has been done, drop the image into the new canvas you created; in the case of Figure 7-6, use the billboard image created earlier. Again, if you have problems making the image full size, try to create the biggest size you can within your limitations.

Resolution on Demand

One other option you may want to look at for scaling images up is a program from Genuine Fractals (www.lizardtech.com/solutions/gf/). Some people swear by the ability of this program to scale images up with little degradation. Their web site claims they can “output any file size from a single encoded file, up to 600% without image degradation.” It is reasonably priced and may be worth a look.
