    Upsizing Images

    What is the best method of upsizing an image? I wish to crop the image as well.

    What is the limit of upsizing in percentages - one method I found was in increments of 10% and bicubic smoother.

    It is for printing purposes for a client.

    I wish to print online, so therefore i have to prepare for print - it is quite daunting.

    Appreciate any comments or pointers, particularly any tutorials that I could have access to.

    See if you can get a copy of perfect resize (ononesoftware). It used to be called genuine fractals and is (IMO) the best software for upsizing a photo.

    In Photoshop, Scott Kelby recommends using the Image>Size menu and choosing bicubic sharper from the drop down menu, even though when you click it it says bicubic sharper is best for reductions. I have used this method a couple of times and it has worked well, but Perfect Resize is the best way to go.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    Agree with Rick, the best results I've ever had was using Genuine Fractals, or Perfect Resize as it is now.

    Looks perfect, downloading a trial of the standalone and will purchase if it does the job.

    If you guys recommend it, then that is enough for me.
