Hey Bob
Sorry for not replying to your posts sooner but I've had my second hard drive crash this year. The first in January was my external data drive and this one was the drive on my laptop. ARRGGH! Makes a fellow think about becoming a Luddite! Whatever happened to rotary dial phones anyways? How about "party lines"?

In any case, I've really appreciated your posts:

May 7 - have lots of fun with PhotoShop. Be careful, it's tremendously addictive!

May 10 & 14 - Great stuff on Pine Creek! I love it when little layouts are like the EverReady Bunny - they keep going and going....
May 15 - I checked Carl Arendt's Scrapbook and there you are with 2 layouts! Well done! Since he put my Tortuga & Pine Creek layout right after your Pine Creek I guess I can bask in your reflected glory!

There's a lot of good work going on in this Forum. I hope others will submit their efforts to Carl. He often comes back with great suggestions.

Cheers

Brian

Hi Brian,

I know what you mean. I had a crash and a lightning bolt. Now I have a new computer with Vista.

You don’t need to bask in my glory. You’ve more than earned your own.

I’m always amazed at the response to Carl’s site. Pine Creek has had about 1500 hits in the three days after his mid-May update came out. He always has nice things to say.

Someday we’ll all have to make a field trip to Pittsburgh to meet him.
 

Bob

Pat,

It was printed on a Plotter, which is a large inkjet printer that uses 36-inch rolls of paper. I would think any print shop would that capability.

Bob or anyone else, could you tell me what would be the best settings on a camera to use to be able to print out such a large format? Thanks Pat

Just guessing Pat, I would say to set it for as many megs as you are able.

The bigger the original image, the more you will be able to have the print enlarged before it starts to distort or pixelate.

Sounds right to me anyway. :mex:

Sounds about right Dave , generally for best quality for editing or printing higher the meg a pixal less pictures , so if your getting one pic from the digi camera thats the best quality.

Amazing how much activity you've managed to get in the one little scene, well thought out indeed.

Pat,

 

Dave and Lynn are right. Use the highest setting you have on your camera. I shot that picture with my older camera which is about 1.2 mega pixels.  It ended up being 2304 x 1075 pixels in size. I don’t think I could have enlarged it much more before the quality deteriorated.

 

Bob
