fairy bower for me, needs to be a panoramic rather than a portrait orientation for the wall in my mind.

Plus it's a great snap too

This is as good as i could get it, There is still a bit of grainyness under that lip that i have no idea how to get ride of, any lighter and it starts to look bad/show up more.

In Lightroom when you export a file, you can set the size and resolution all in there. You would have to create a custom size for what your doing. The resolution for most labs is 300 but the one I will be eventually using when I pull my finger out wants 270 for memory. Not sure why. They specialise in large prints. In fact it's the lab that does all of Ken Duncan's images. He use to own it. Anyway, getting back on track. I'd visit the people who you plan to use and speak with them. They'll steer you in the right direction. Well hopefully anyway.
Whenever I do get prints done I resize all my prints and put them on the right size canvases in photo shop. The last collage I did was about $82 worth of prints normally. It cost me $14 something because I did all the work at home. Cheers. :)

Just FYI . Photo labs work with fixed sizes in regards to their photo paper sizes. It's handy to note all their sizes so when it comes to doing prints you know what paper size might be best to use.
For example I did one of those family tree frames recently. I measured the little frames which gave me the size of what the actual print has to be. I then applied those settings in PS. There were five little frames. I then just selected a paper ( in Photoshop it's known as canvas size) size in PS that they'd all fit on. I was able to squeeze them all onto a 5x7 paper (canvas). End of the day my file was a 5x7 filled with all the little photos. I just cut em all out at home. Saves a stack of money when you do it this way. So instead of them doing all the fiddly stuff and charging me for it, I do it myself. Cheers.
:D

Interesting petunias mate…Doh!!!!!! :urgh: s h o t s! …. Yeah I guess the conditions need to be right but at least your out there doin it! More than what I can say. Need to pull the finger out I think.

Just have a chat to the people wherever you take your files for printing. If they're half decent they'll explain what you need to do. Cheers.

ive never gotten any photos blown up yet so yea.
The local camerahouse here shut a while back and as far as i know there is nothing else around...without driving to cambletown or something. So its all new territory.

Anyways played around last night with the open fire, ended up having to take 5 photos in a row just to get the flames in a spot that wasn't covering the whole thing....so i ended up with like 80 photos lol. Then i went and played with the colours. I was originaly gonna do nothing but red, but i ended up going with a bit of orange and a weeeee bit of yellow.

why is s h u t
Pentunia? lol

We have our lap top permanently connected to the big TV via HDMI cable for youtube. The other night I needed a chill out time after everyone went to bed so I played one of those fireplace youtubes that loop for about 2hrs. Turned all the lights off to get the flicker effect, poured a glass of Stones Green Ginger Wine on ice and I was in a tranquility paradise. Sooooo relaxing. Not the real deal but bloody effective…. lol :D
