Thanks to advances in digital camera technology, it's easier than ever to take great-looking images. And thanks to improvements in Adobe Photoshop CS, it's easier than ever make those images look good on screen.
But what about making large-size prints from those images? Is that easier, too? Well yes, it is.
For years the conventional wisdom has been to never upsample -- increase the resolution of -- an image. That conventional wisdom is being challenged by new techniques and better software.
In this excerpt from "50 Fast Photoshop CS Techniques," you'll see how to increase the resolution of an image so that it looks good when printed at a large size.
