One warning about frames from Michael's is their frames generally have a very small rabbit, so you can't fit a nicely mounted and matted print inside. Another thing if you print on 13x19 paper, borderless and frame the print you'll lose about 1/2 of the image all around . Whenever I do print borderless, I prepare my image for printing with a 1/8" white border around the outside so that when the printer enlarges the image I lose very little of the image to the borderless print image enlarging process.

Digital photo enlargement to several times its original 300 PPI size, while still retaining sharp detail, is perhaps the ultimate goal of many interpolation algorithms.

Optimizing Digital Photo Enlargment

Despite this common aim, enlargement results can vary significantly depending on the resize software, sharpening and interpolation algorithm implemented. The problem arises because unlike film, digital cameras store their detail in a discrete unit: the pixel. Any attempt to magnify an image also enlarges these pixels — unless some type of image interpolation is performed. Move your mouse over the image to the right to see how even standard interpolation can improve the blocky, pixelated appearance. Before proceeding with this tutorial, know that there is no magic solution; the best optimization is to start with the highest quality image possible.

Recall that all non-adaptive interpolation algorithms always face a trade-off between three artifacts: aliasing, blurring and edge halos. HARDWARE vs. Basics of Digital Camera Pixels.

Basics of Digital Camera Pixels

This tutorial aims to clear up some of this digital pixel confusion — particularly for those who are either considering or have just purchased their first digital camera. Concepts such as sensor size, megapixels, dithering and print size are discussed. Every digital image consists of a fundamental small-scale descriptor: THE PIXEL, invented by combining the words "PICture ELement.

Traditional printing methods use patterns of dots to render photographic images on a printed page. While pixels on a monitor are square and in contact with the adjacent pixels, printed dots have space between them to make white, or no space between them to make black. Color photographs are printed using four inks, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black (CMYK), and four separate dot patterns, one for each ink. Toolbox - Photography Printing Guide - DPI vs PPI.
