Trouble enlarging a 4 x 6 photo to a 5 x 7.

I'm trying to enlarge a 4 x 6 photo to a larger one, 5 x 7. I've been trying on plain paper in black and white to save paper and color ink. All I get in my copy is about 1/4 of the original picture, the rest is cut off. Please help.

What is the relation between megapixels and maximun enlargement size


The number of pixels (measured in megapixels only because there's so many of them, the number would be very long if they didn't shorten it down; much like saying gigabyte for hard drives, instead of bytes) directly correlates to how much data has been recorded for a particular image.

Photos aren't "drawn" with lines (which is known as a vector image). They are recorded in pixels (raster image), and each pixel is just a single dot of a single color at a specific place in that photo.

When you look at that photo at a very small size (such as on your monitor), the computer "interpolates" (a fancy word for "guesses") which pixels to hide from view, and kind of remixes the other colors on the screen so it looks like the original photo. (Kind of weird, but it's true.)

The photo is "perfect" when it is the full size (one pixel on-screen to one pixel in-photo ratio). No interpolation is done, so you see exactly what you photographed.

If you enlarge a photo beyond the number of pixels you have, you again have to do interpolation, where the computer has to "guess" which color pixels would blend properly between the real pixels in the gaps that are created when it's stretched beyond what data is there.

So, to answer your question:

The direct relationship is this: If you have too few pixels (as rated in megapixels), and you enlarge the photo too much, then there's too much guesswork done by the computer. It is just kind of filling in colors, and this makes the photo look blurry. It can't create detail where no detail existed before.

The more pixels you have, the larger the print you can make WITHOUT enlarging (or interpolating) it. This makes the result very crisp indeed, because all of the pixels are coming from the photo, not from the guesswork of the computer. Even if you are only enlarging it a small amount, it's going to be infinitely better than enlarging it a larger amount. The more interpolation, the fuzzier it gets.

Tip

Using a color enlarger to print both color and black and white photos


Some enlargers have dials on the front that are labeled yellow, cyan and magenta. These enlargers are made to print both black and white and color photos. To print in colors you use the dials to perfect the colors of your print. Let say that you took a picture and the colors look to be a bit off. In the light you would hold up a color filter to the image and decide which filter makes the color look closest to what you want the final image to look like. Then taking the information on the card you go back into the dark room and adjust the dials on the enlarger according to the card that was used. If you were looking through a green filter then you would lower the number on the magenta dial.

Printing in black and white on an enlarger with these dials is a little different. Since there are no colors in the black and white paper these dials have a different function. They are used to adjust the contrast of an image. If you turn the light on in the enlarger without paper under it and turn the dials you will notice that the magenta will make the light darker. When you print with the yellow and cyan dials at 0 and magenta at around 10-20 this will add contrast the image. You can always develop all your negatives without touching any of these dials, but if you can master them then your images will have a little less flat than those with little to no contrast.

Does black and white photography use the same enlarger as color photography?


Black and white photography uses a much more basic enlarger, you will notice that some enlargers have knobs on the front that are magenta, cyan and yellow these are color enlargers. A color enlarger can be used to develop black and white images but a color image cannot be developed using a black and white enlarger.

How do you enlarge copies on the hp 8500 printer


From The HP 8500 Manual

TIP:You can also use Fit to Page to enlarge a small photo to fit within the

printable area of a full-size page. In order to do this without changing the

proportions of the original or cropping the edges, the device might leave an uneven
amount of white space around the edges of the paper.

What is the best photo size for good quality digital photo prints from my Samsung tl205?


I always recommend setting the camera to take the largest size format at the highest quality or "resolution" settings the camera offers.

Using the largest size and resolution combination provides images with the most detail available in your camera. It will provide excellent results for standard 4 x 6 prints and you'll be glad you chose the larger format and resolution if you wish to edit, crop & enlarge any of your shots. At one point, you'll take a picture that you're going to want to enlarge and frame - but when you have your camera set for smaller images at lower resolutions, jagged edges and pixelization begins to appear in the image. The more you enlarge - the more noticeable it becomes. You see this for yourself by taking a picture of something with small size and low resolution settings and another picture of the exact same scene but with the largest size and highest resolution settings. Display the pictures on your computer screen and enlarge them both to 200% or more. Compare the details and edges of both pictures at the same percentage on enlargement to see what I'm describing.

The size of your pictures has no bearing on the cost of printing them. The only downside is the fact that your memory card will hold fewer pictures. This means you'll need to buy additional or larger memory cards if you find that you take too many pictures between the times you transfer to your computer.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

My MFC-3240c won't copy. Has been fine up to now


Hello may I suggest doing a simple reset of your machine. If you have not tried this please do so.

Simply unplug your printer power wire from the printer and wait about a minute. Now plug it back in and your problem may be resolved.

Next, if this does not make sure you do not have any print jobs backed up in your computers printer cue.

This can be done by looking in the bottom right corner of your computer monitor. look for a printer icon. If there is on there click on it and cancel all print jobs.

Also, check for paper jam, make sure paper is not causing problem.

Printing photos


That is called pixelation and is usually the result of enlarging a photo, whether it be resized larger on the computer or printed at a larger size than it's original pixel dimensions.

Check your printer settings for a setting like "resize photo to fit paper" and uncheck it. Or print from a photo that is larger than the paper and it will reduce the size without any pixelation.

With digital photos you can always go smaller than the original, but rarely ever larger.
