Sounds like a good deal, bet a frame for a print that size ain't going to be cheap though.
Great...just what I was looking for...thanks
So it's £4.99 + postage of £2.99?
Thank you OP
£24.99... yeah right.
Cheers. Got a great pic I'd like blown up
IKEA do frames if you edit the shot down a little bit:

ikea.com/gb/…27/
Various finishes, see drop down menu, and note this has acrylic, not glass. I thought they did a glass one, too but can't find the link, sorry.
A poster this big will look terrible without a really high res photo oO
Nice deal. Thanks
Thanks...great deal.
Picasa + lots of pics as collage = win

Those Ikea frames aren't bad, but the plastic front is a little flimsy
Would probably need an 8MP photo. This is why I don't quite understand why phone cameras get up to 10MP, when are you ever going to blow up the picture to this size?
I'm going to use google piccaso which has an option to create a collage with a folder of photos either together of polorid style. That way you get 100+ photos all printed as art for £8.

Mmmm a nice big picture of myself on the way. I'm happy to get more copies down if anyone else wants one?
I have a pic with the dimensions - 3488x2616, filesize is 2mb.. Can anyone help me whether this would look ok at this size?

Cheers! Good deal - I don't want to waste it on a pic that looks pants!

3488 over 40 = 87DPI, ideally you'd aim for 200DPI for photo prints, but with a 40" poster you'd need a 42mp camera for that and clearly hardly anyone has that.

I'd say look at the image at full size 100%, if it's sharp then the poster will look ok, if it's soft and blurry like the output from a camera phone then I wouldn't bother, or maybe look at upscaling it and applying an art filter effect depending on what it is.
Great deal however one problem is if you want to frame it - you will find it near on impossible to find a frame, and will have to pay silly money for it as 40x30 inches is not a standard size.
How long is delivery on this?

Great -thanks Salty. It looks ok at 100% so I might risk it. The design allows me to trim the edges so hopefully should find a frame :-)
Got one of these in the past, found a 12mp photo and got it printed, looks amazing on my wall without a frame and have had some great comments! Make sure you select Glossy to give it that photo effect!

Deluivery was about 2 days after i placed the order so a top notch effort by Photobox

Actually, it depends on the distance you'll be viewing it from. Think of billboard poster... May look sharp from a distance, but close up it's awful. Same for this print. Hang it on your wall and look at it with your nose to it and it will likely look bad. But from a distance will look great. A 6x4 print looks sharp because you're not getting THAT close to it, relatively.

You only need crazy resolutions on the original file if you want a large print which you ALSO want to look at really closely. And then you'll also notice other weakness in the picture, like odd colours and distortions caused by the quality of the lens and camera sensor used to take the original shot.

It's also not JUST about resolution (pixels). remember your high/med/low quality jpeg settings in your camera? These typically don't change the resolution of the shot, but how much information in it is lost to get the file size low. Lost information means a fuzzier picture, even if it still has high resolution (in terms of pixels).

A super sharp print that size will require an image from a high end/high quality dSLR fitted with a high quality lens. But as I said above, you'll not notice the difference if the picture is viewed from a distance, or you're after the same quality as you'd expect from a cheapish poster you buy in a shop :-). And I've been AMAZED by how good low resolution prints can look when printed and viewed from a distance (less than 1000 pixels across, printed to A4 size, hung on a wall and viewed from a few feet away...

I got this last time and was very impressed by the quality.
Going to have to add lots of whitespace, cant get a smaller size on this deal.

Cheers op

unless you have the Nokia 808 PureView it takes pictures at 41mp !!
If anyone would like my photo please follow my link to my drop box. Its just a picture of a dandelion, but I like it. Its 32mb. I got this printed last time and was very impressed. The quality should say good, with a smiley face.

Its not watermarked on anything. Let me know if you use it

nice!
there seems to be a 10mb max file limit? I have a 62Mp Image with a file size of 60mb any way round it?
@polesp

There is definately a way around it because i uploaded a 32mb file. Cant quite remember how to do it, but i know that you dont use the link on the website that says 'create now' There is another way to upload pics, possibly from my account?
Just use bluetack. There, you just saved a load more.

I think 'Silly money is exagerating a bit. Take it to a normal highstreet framers and it shouldn't be a fortune.

OR

Buy a larger frame and then just pay someone to cut you a mount for it. No normally too expensive
people this is not a thread for frames it's for a well priced poster

please stay on topic
All the talks about resoluton makes me laugh! You should be selling cameras at Argos maybe...

I've taken a shot with an "older" 6MP camera, enlarged it to 30x20 poster size and it's crystal clear.

Don't believe all the hype, guys...
Ordered- thanks.

For info - delivery is estimated at 29th September.
Thanks for this
