    Hi
    I am sending off one of my images for printing at 100cm x 70 cm but i need to sharpen it.I find this very difficult to get right on screen and don't want to **** it up.
    Anyone got any suggestions as to what levels to set etc
    cheers

    I do a lot of large printing in house. What is it being printed onto and at what res. Who is doing the job?? Most high quality professional printers wil run it through their own rip which will usually make a better job of sharpening it that you will, that said its worth asking them first. Also what print process are you using ?

    Cheers for replying Dan
    254 dpi onto semi matt paper to be backed onto foamboard and laminated.
    Was thinking about Peak Imaging as they have produced good results for me in the past.
    Have converted the image to their profile.Haven't sent it off yet cos of this sharpening dilemna.
    I asked them about sharpening but they replied that it is a matter of taste-i think i was aware of that!

    That's around A2 size isn't it? I usually use the sharpening actions from The light's right studio as they work relative to your output type, media & dpi.

    Hi Jon, Have you heard of Photokit Sharpener before? it is excellent and it alows you to sharpen for output to different printer types and papers without introducing noise
