It is very important to understand that there is a limit, beyond which, increasing the size of your output from a given size input (2” x 2” Slide, 4” x 5” Transparency, 8” x 10” Transparency) will cause unacceptable results.
The following questions and Table of Guidelines will help you obtain the best possible results with the input you have.
Question #1: How Big Can I Make My
* If your composition has a lot of detail you may start to notice pixelation (distortion) if you go much larger than these sizes.
** To properly color correct your work we require an analog photo created from your input on Kodak or Fuji High Gloss Photo Paper.
The purpose of the color analog photo created from your input on Kodak or Fuji High Gloss Photo Paper is not only important for us to color correct your giclée, but it is very important for you to see a photo of your work created from your slide or transparency. If it does not look good then your slide or transparency is not good, and nobody can create results from your input better than the photo.
What to Send Crimson:
1. Your Slide or Transparency (Input)
2. The Analog Photo Created from Your Input on Kodak or Fuji High Gloss Photo Paper
3. The Crimson Submission Form Filled Out
4. Your Deposit / Payment Check or Credit Card Info
Comment: Direct Scanning Is The Best
Please note that the very best results are always obtained by having Crimson flatbed scan your original work directly. Because we do not charge any additional scanning fees, when using our "Quantity Pricing", it is also much cheaper for you. We can Flatbed Scan Originals Up To 36” x 48”.
Please call if you have any questions.
