You might enquire of the place you take your film for processing whether
you can specify the PPI of the processed images, in which case I would
specify a ppi of 300 or more. If you cannot, and you have a scanner, you
might be able to scan the negative on your scanner, and "develop" which
would be basically changing to the color balance of the image and
prepare the images at home. I have had reasonably good luck scanning
both positive and negative images made on 35 mm film in a variety of
media on a flatbed scanner, and processing the film. I scan at 1200 dpi,
and by printing at the same image 300 dpi, I increase the size of the
printed image by 4 times.
