how crappy is it going to look?
wondering this myself.... i know reg size ones look decent
post the 1600x1200 pic
I've done it before, at first it looks fine, certainly at distance you would'nt notice much. But when you inspect it close you'll make out the pixels eventually.
I would'nt do it unless I had to.
By the way... haven't you heard of interpolating? I do it when printing A3's and bigger sizes. Should eliminate your problem as well.
what is interpolating? and does Wolf Camera developing do that?
It's basically upsizing by using algorithms which work better than the usual bicubic interpolation in Photoshop. It'll eliminate the visible pixels in your print!
Another method people use is by upsizing in Photoshop (bicubic) by 10% steps. So like you increase it to 110% at a time... not sure if this works well though.
8x10 prints at 1280 x 960 look fine....
my 3000x2000 look okay on 8x10. Not sure about 1600x1200. That's like hum... 1/3 of pixel count...
