I recently took some shots of all the staff in the office and proposed to my boss to do a wall mural with life-size prints of everyone but I'm facing problems enlarging the photos. After enlarging using photoshop 'image resize', the photos is not sharp and the edges are very soft...

I'm using a canon 40D and all the photos were taken in raw format. Can some kind soul advice how i shld go about enlarging the photos???

Shouldn't you decide your canvas size and then select what DPI you guys are gonna print based on your 10mp resolution?

There's no need to enlarge the image. Just give the processed file to the printer. Tell them the size you want. They'll do the rest.

But don't expect life size prints to be sharp. The pixels will be the size of golf balls.

when you make a mural print, you don't expect it to be very sharp just like what you look at a 8R photos, especially you are only using a 10MP camera, as long it looks sharp from 3-4 meter away is good enough.
