Hey all,
I'm looking to get some large prints done and curious as to people's experiences here. Who do y'all use? I'll be having some odd sizes done, mostly panoramas so somewhere around a 1:4 ratio.

Also, what's a good rule of thumb for sizes. say an image that's 2000x8000 pixels?

Cheers,
Seth

Not sure what kind of rule of thumb you're after. 8000 pixels could be printed 2 meter across, 100ppi is ok for images you're not standing right next to, sometimes even 75ppi is enough.
