The sophistication of the algorithm and the size of the sampling set determine the quality of the interpolated results. >>> essential skills >>> Printer-based resampling An alternative approach to using Photoshop to resample your picture is to make use of the ‘scaling’ options in your printer driver dialog. Most desktop and high-end laboratory digital printers are capable of the interpolation necessary to produce big prints. When outsourcing to a professional printer the file is kept to its original pixel dimensions and the resolution is reduced so that the print size will equal the required print dimensions.

This version of the file becomes the one that is stored on your hard drive or web site. 3. The compressed file is decompressed ready for viewing or editing. >>> essential skills >>> If the decompressed file is exactly the same as the original after decompression, then the process is called ‘lossless’.

Lossless systems typically can reduce files to about 60% of their original size, whereas lossy compression can reduce images to less than 1%.

When outsourcing to a professional printer the file is kept to its original pixel dimensions and the resolution is reduced so that the print size will equal the required print dimensions. The digital printer is then instructed to interpolate the file as it was printing to its optimum resolution of the machine. On the desktop a similar process is used with the digital photographer selecting a scale value in the print driver dialog that is greater than 100%. Letting the output device perform the interpolation of the image has the following advantages – the process does not require the photographer to change the original file in any way and it removes an extra processing step from the file preparation process.
