Thread: Question regarding Capture One PRO

    Default Question regarding Capture One PRO

    Hi guys,

    Let say I shoot this photo in RAW, and use Capture One PRO to convert it to TIFF. Does making the output size to 200% (instead of 100%) improves it's capability to blow up the photo to larger size?

    Or is there any 'best' way to pump the photo resolution via software interpolation or resampling?

    Thanks!

    there are those who prefer increasing the dimensions of an image at the stage of RAW development rather than increasing after the image had been processed because in the first case the image is interpolated using RAW data... then there are those who prefer to use 3rd party specialised uprezzing software to increase the dimensions of the processed file... me, I'm with the former as I believe Capture One or Adobe ACR (the programs I use) can do a pretty decent job of uprezzing and I'm not willing to spend money on a 3rd party application which may or may not produce significantly better results... YMMV...

    as well, be aware of how large you would actually need the file to be to print... some experts (such as the late Bruce Fraser) have determined that all you need for a desktop printer is about 180ppi input resolution to produce photo quality prints... the 180ppi image would be converted (screened) by the printer's software to the printer's native print resolution to produce photo quality prints... and what those experts have found out is that with at least something like 180ppi, it is better to just let the printer itself do any uprezzing rather than the user doing it... of course if your image has more resolution originally, better still (according to the same experts, anything above 480ppi is apparently not gonna create any difference and only gonna slow down the printing process)...

    Thanks RBK for your reply, it's informative

    The type of printing I'm preparing the photos for are actually very huge in dimension, at least 5m in width.. Looks like uprezzing the photos at the very first step during RAW is the best.. Noted

    Hello,

    If your images are going up to 5meters. It's very highly likely the printer/plotter that's used for printing your image will have its own up rezzing software typically known as a RIP. Might be good to check with your service provider about image sizing.

    Best

    Capture one can resize up to 250% if i am not wrong. The quality is very acceptable...
