Please assist me.
I took a photograph of an original work of art I had donw- 200cm x 140cm.
Saved the photo (it seems) to JPEG.
Opened the JPEG in Gimp 2.
Manipulated it using the GIMP 'Cubism' function.
Then someone approached me to purchase the manipulated image but requested the
image be canvas-printed at the same large format as the original work of art of
200cm x 140cm.
I approached a canvas printer with this GIMP file and they claimed that my Gimp
file was now too small (25cm x 12 cm) and too low res for the 300 dpi I needed
for a quality printed canvas image of 200cm x 140 cm.
Please can someone assist me to get this GIMP file DPI up to be able to print
the image large format?
200x140cm @ 300DPI is 372Mpix.... completely unrealistic. At normal
viewing distance the average human eye doesn't see any detail smaller
than 1/1800 of the diagonal (which means a 6Mpix image is normally
enough, whatever the physical print size) . 300DPI is also going to be
finer than the canvas...
How big is your current image (in pixels, since that's the only thing
