Genuine Fractals Print Pro [continued]

At this point you're presented with several options. These range from cropping to scaling, canvas size to quality setings, etc. You can also set the maximum desired file size and final print resolution. For the best outcome, you'll want to set the import settings as high as your RAM will allow and then work backwards to reduce the file size to your desired final resolution.

For this particular example, I scaled the size to 1,200 percent of the original width and height of the image, generating the equivalent of a 288 DPI image at the original dimensions. The result shows substantial improvement in what will be the final output for print (though some of this improvement might be difficult to detect on your screen). Take a look at the results below.

The image on the left is the Photoshop interpolation to 300 DPI. The image on the right is the Genuine Fractals Print Pro image at 1,200 percent the original image's resolution. It might be hard to detect on the screen, but note the sharper detail in the eyebrow, iris, jowl line and nostril, and note the more defined rim on the glasses. These will make big differences in the print.
