Looks great, thanks for posting
Has anyone used photobox before? are they good?
Edited by: "bigflump" 12th Aug 2012

Very good. I have always used them and never had a problem.

You will need a high quality (resolution) print to get a good picture at this enlargement size.

I had one done and the even though the Photobox quality smiley was "Green Good Quality" the finished product wasn't good enough to put up.

It won't load for me

Ordered excellent bargain! Thank you very much. x

struggling to find a picture of high enough resolution. can some one tell me how many pixels by how many pixels would be needed for a clear print?

Be about 18 Meg for this size to be any good and it needs to be a good image. High pixel count doesn't always mean great quality.

hi
does anybody know hoe long it takes to get printed and processed please? -i cant seem to find the info

thanks in advance

£2.99 for the poster and £20 plus for a decent frame to put it in !

Thanks, ordered :-)

Mine was just over 6 Meg, and was given an average quality..... For £2.99 Doesn't matter if it's not brilliant.

I'd say a high pixel count is a better indicator of quality than size, a 2mb bitmap image may be nowhere near in terms of quality compared to a 500kb jpg. But you're right that high pixel count doesn't mean good quality.

Cheers went for it even though it said poor quality taken from my galaxy s3. worth a go

my picture was sized at 2592x3888 pixels / 300 DPI and it still said medium quality ! i got not smiling / not sad face !!!

the pic was taken with a canon eos 40d

Yout sentiment is right, but you're wrong in that Bitmap is a lossless format.

awesome...ordered..i guess the image has to be resized to 100 mb to get a decent poster of this size...

Touche, although I don't believe I stated that bitmaps were a lossless format, I just stated that they weren't comparable to jpgs of similar sizes

I'm jesting, I did actually think bmps were lossless in the sense that pixel information was individually.

Btw, if anyone can ir is attempting to print out a swanson pyramid of greatness.. lemme know how it goes!

Worked, cheers! 45" poster of Gabe on the way.

hot. ordered

Worked, cheers! 45" poster of Gabe on the way.


Does it cost extra to laminate it?

Thx ..Ordered

Just an idea ..If you guys dont have one single pic with that high resolution why dont you try making a collage with a collection of snaps and then using that ..I did that and I used Picasa to do that ..Hope this helps someone

great deal. thanks

The upload limit is only 10MB unfortunately so it's not possible to upload anything particularly high quality, I've a mosaic I want to try printing (200MP/90MB) to see how it comes out but the uploader rejects it straight away.

Create an account, and go to your albums page. There they have a high quality uploader for large pictures. It says that it only works with JPG files up to 25MB, but I just uploaded a ~50MB one with no problems. You can then close that tab, open up the offer page again, and order your poster using your newly uploaded image
Edited by: "josh92176" 12th Aug 2012

In terms of print, the higher pixel count will mean a better quality unlike quality of a camera where the lens means quality, however I doubt they will print in these resolutions, very much doubt it.

Anyone had the poster/s before? Any thoughts on matt versus gloss paper?

Photobox are terrific, I've used their pro-posters quite a few times and they are comparable to pricey pro-printshop prints. Even for their regular posters at just £2.99 for postage this is definitely a fantastic bargain. Thanks for posting, Newbold, just ordered.

BTW they print their pro-posters at 254 dpi so I guess these will be the same. I interpolate files using bicubic smoother in Photoshop (there are free programmes out there that can do the same job), to the final print image size, then sharpen a little bit. Viewing distance for big prints is usually from several feet - otherwise you'd need medium/large format cameras to achieve close up detail at this size.

As for finish, I prefer matt but it's definitely a matter of taste.

Thanks, that seems to have worked - at least this way it's the highest resolution possible and it's Photobox who will downsample it.

John

worth a punt

Anyone tried ordering two yet? Does it recognize already used addresses? Will they cancel both orders?
Only doing it for a friend...
In fact, if I use the voucher code on an account, am I right in thinking that it stays with that account until 31st August?

The canvas uses polyester, I know cotton canvas are more colour fade resistant. But is there a visible difference on the print quality in the early years?

same here.canon 550d PICS AND IT STILL SAYS AVERAGE QUALITY.

bookmarked. will check out tom.

Deal of the week right there! Ordered one. Only annoying thing is it won't let you reduce the size of the photo to fully fit the poster like you can when ordering other size posters from their site.
