I recently took a very nice picture of a big horn sheep with a Canon EOS T1i 15 megapixel camera. I thought I would ask here for the best advice on getting nice prints from it. Moderators may move this thread if they feel it is in the wrong forum.
It seems very hard to find what quality of printers online services use. The image turned out well with no cropping needed at 4752 x 3168 pixels, 80mm, f4, 400 ASA. I can adjust pixels per inch in the GIMP to see relative print sizes. 600ppi = approximately 8x5 inch picture, and 150ppi = 31x21 inches etc. Would any local printing shop have reasonable prices and a comparable printer to online services? Is there an online service that has really high quality with a good price? Are all the papers about the same? I may get 5-10 made if the cost is low enough for bulk images. I can do my own framing. Any helpful knowledge would be nice to get the best visual size and quality for costs.
