This time topic quite new for me. I want to print my photos bigger than A3 format.
Normally for printing I do the following:
- Process RAW in darktable, export it as TIFF, JPG (depends)
- Create an image in GIMP with size that equals print size (300 dpi)
- Insert image as layer and scaling it down leaving some margins (to my taste)
- Adding signature to photo and description at the bottom margin.
There you go!
It works nice up to A3 print. But for bigger ones I need to scale up, not scale down my photo.
Haven’t done that and those prints are quite expensive (oh, Fine Art papers…) thus not much left for experimenting.
All done in Linux.
Do you have any good practices for the upscaling the image for the print?
If there were no fonts there won’t be a problem. I would then leave the upscaling to the service. But I don’t want to scale the fonts too.
