Hi all-

Hope you're doing well!

I could use some help, if anyone is willing. I am printing a large panorama and would like some help ensuring I have left no dust spots, marks, weird areas. I've gone over it several times and printed a proof, but I already know when it's sitting 4 feet wide I'm going to spot it from a mile away.

I can't pay you, but will return the favor when needed. :)

Cheers,
Chris

It's giant, and Flickr won't allow me to post it since I'm not a PRO member. I would prob just have to email it.

Great! I can send it over whenever

About 20MB
PostImage free can take up to 24MB (SAMPLE) or I don't mind hosting it on my website (no charge - happy to help) :)

No worries. Ryan's probably better at it than me :)

Hi all- thanks again to everyone who offered to help and @RyanB for all of his suggestions! (I did clone those spots out, very helpful- cheers!)

I got some small sectional proofs made of the different types of metal finishes (gloss, mid-gloss, satin, sheer):

Went back and forth on sizing- finally settled on 14x40 - BayPhoto metal mid-gloss print with exhibit mount frame. Was going to do 20x60, but they were going to charge me crazy money to have it shipped in a crate (another $200 for size/crate).

Crossing my fingers it comes out nice- never printed this large (or on metal) before. I'll post the final product...wish me luck!

Cheers,
Chris

Sounds like you are taking all precautions before committing to a large format so I'm sure it will come out beautifully. My dad is currently looking at printing 20x40 on metal(aluminium) from Bay Photo so it would be great to hear how it goes for you. They are just down the road from him but I don't think they are taking walk in customers at the moment and he has very limited experience when it comes to photographic printing.

It’s going to be a beauty! I just got one of mine printed on canvas for a friend’s 50 birthday present. My sunset print outshined the pearls my wife gave her!
