    Depending upon the quality of the original images your local kinkos or staples should be able to blow it up for you in poster size?

    Just as a side note, do you own the copyright to those images or are they something you pulled of the internet?!

    Be careful as some businesses may want proof that you own the images.

    Ignoring for a moment the copywrite issue.


    If you want to make them into a poster, elarge the image using whatever image manipulation software you have, to the image size you want, at 100 DPI or better.

    Then print an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of it on your home printer.

    If the picture looks clear, no jagged edges, etc., then it will reproduce as a nice poster.

    These guys will do a great jog for you if the image works.

    Problem with most internet images is they start at 96 DPI and are relatively small. By the time you blow them up, you lose all the definition, and they make lousy posters.

    These folks can make a 4'x6' banner from a snapshot look great. I use them for printing research posters for medical conferences & they are top notch. Digital Image:
