    mayb can try to set to 200dpi to print... doesnt always need to b 300dpi... and do abit of interpolation to increase the printing size bit by bit...to A1 or A0... smtime printing big poster or banner they r not actually sharp jus tat they r place on the wall or building whe ppl cant see it in close distance so they look like they r sharp... Jus my 2 cents...

    see his reply, interpolate bit by bit will be better than doing it all at once. increase slowly. at least that's what i've been told.

    increase the file by 10% each time until you reach the necessary size...but how big you can print also depends on the sharpness of the original image...

    Normally to print that big, you may wish to retain 300 dpi on your file resolution. You can go as big as you want but pixelation may occur. One software that we normally use for enlargement is Genuine Fractal from OneSoft (if i remember correctly) together with Photoshop. It goes as high as 500% increament (step by step) but you still get pixelation.

    How good the picture comes out from an A0 print depends how good your original picture is (eg. noise and softness) may affect the picture too. Also, if you stand 1 m away from the enlarged picture, it may not that bad too....it's subjective.
