    Default Not difficult...

    All you need is a good tripod and a bit of patience, just shoot in parts and stitch.

    Depends how you want the pictures to appear on the A1 size output. Honestly, if you want the whole pic to look good and you do not have a DSLR then my opinion is that you shoot it in its highest resolution in parts and stich them together. One benefit is that if the original is a huge painting, it would become distorted due to wide angle lenses and you get all the details in good order.

    However, if you prefer to do with a single shot (with either a slr or pnp camera), then you might want to shoot at its highest resolution and then blow it up. For me, I always use Genuine Fractal to enlarge the size (from 300% to 500%). Anything beyond 500% to 800%, I would use first Genuine Fractal to 500% and then Photoshop resizing with bi-cubic interpolation for another 300% - bear in mind that your original pics have to be at least 180dpi before in order to achieve relatively good results.

    Shoot outside but in the shade.......or better when it is cloudy, no problems with the lighting as it is soft.....and you won't get problems with colour changes.

    Best is to keep everything levelled/parallel during shooting or else you get distortions: camera and painting, shoot parts and stitch together........good luck!
