    I have a few questions about having large prints made
    and when i say large i mean poster size 24x36 or so

    will the resolution and pixle and all that stuff need to be adjusted in order to have a print come out nice and clean/clear?

    where would one suggest getting something printed that big?
    stapels, wal amrt, CVS, Kodak.com? anythng suggestions?

    Love the diagram busrider!

    JasonLambert did a post the other day about prints. It should still be on the first couple of pages. Just look for posts from JasonLambert. It had good info.

    *EDIT*

    Found it! Here's a link.

    I wasn't trying to be rude or facetious (spelling) or anything. Just want to help...

    But I (personally) feel that diagrams are often quite helpful... Then again I am very "visual" when it comes to learning things...

    Nationsphotolab.com did an excellent job on my prints. I had 2 30x30s and a 12x18 printed....all of them were wonderful, colors popped, paper felt very nice, now I need to find some frames....hmmm...

    Just ordered a full bleed canvas print from Nations Photo Lab per JasonLambert's suggestion. The program that you had to download to submit orders with was a little clunky, but I like that it allowed you to visualize your print before it got sent out.
