    Nice, but its probably only the size of a regular sheet of paper, am I right?

    You could probably take it to a print shop (think Kinkos) and get it any size you want. Picture quality would be the only issue.

    That is a cool idea. proplr all over my building have those "insprational" posters tht look like that so it would be really cool to have one like your's to take them by surprise.

    I don't think the picture quality wouldn't be in issue if you used maybe a pic straight off a digital camera. On the highest quality setting, my camera spits out pics at a size of 2304x1728. Surely that's big enough to where Kinko's could blow it up to a nice poster size without the quality suffering too much.

    Sure! I've had a few pics (of various scenes) from a 4 MP digicam printed as a 20x30 poster and been satisfied with the results.

    Of course you blow it up a bit in small steps with a photo editor, do some sharpening, and it isn't as crisp as an 8x10 from the same image file, but if I want that, I'd better buy a digicam with a higher pixel count.

    For a poster destined to be viewed at a distance of several feet or halfway across the room, it's perfectly adequate.

    In any case, I like the poster idea. Pride of ownership! Mine's still rusty, so I'll not join him in this exposition just yet.
