I have been asked to produce a composite comprising of 36 images (from a P&S camera) to 20"x16" maximum size printed to canvas.
Attached is a quick test of layout after bringing the images into LR and resizing and printing to file
Personally I am not that keen on canvas prints, although I am sure with the correct subject matter they can look fine. In this case I will be sending the file to a lab for printing and mounting but prior to this I do have some concerns about the potential final look of the image. I feel that it would be much better to print to normal paper rather than canvas
Print size 20"x16"
No. Images 36 - varying sizes
Smallest image 3"x2"
Current 150 ppi file size 20.6MB
At LR default print to JPEG the file resolution is 150 ppi, but as the print is likely to be viewed much closer than what may be considered 'normal' viewing distance for a 20x16 I feel there is just not enough file resolution and this should be increased. But then there is the issue of how far to go due to the nature of canvas and the ability to resolve detail. I know that these are only holiday snapshots but faces should still be recognisable
So I would appreciate any advice/suggestions
