ok so i am a senior at my high school. through my previous years i have walked past this door with some "funny lookin" man on it on my way to gym. well this door just so happens to be the door to the photography room of my school. i now take this class, turns out this guy on the door is charles chaplin which a former student had painted on the door for my teacher. and as a first year student my teacher has asked me to come up with something she can put on the dark room door. she didnt ask a second year "advanced photography" student, she asked me. :) so basically i was wondering if i would be able to print something of that size and it still be clear and crisp. i shoot with an xti in raw. i will of course try and shoot with the lowest iso possiable and try to crop as little as possiable, if any. can it be done? any tips?
thanks guys

anything can be done.
take photos of the image in sections and merge them afterwards.

Or, take image, and print them in sections. Can use a standard 8.5 x 11 printer and you have a montage. Good luck

A 3MP image can be properly blown up to roughly 20x30 at the right dpi and resolution, and still look great. My dad had a few made up back when 3.2MP cameras were the top of the line for digital imaging.

An XTi has plenty of resolution for a full door size print. Example: fathead.com

The tough part for you is likely to be finding someone who will actually print you something the size of a door, and then being able to afford it. You could also go the other route of printing each one out individually and then trying to merge them together.. but it might be less painless to just order a full size from a professional printer.

i had a couple 4 foot long by 18 inch high panos printed and they looked great, on of them was from a image straight out of the cam (30d) i took the image in landscape orientation, and opend it in PS as a jpeg, i used the crop tool to make it a 48" x 18" image.. so i basically cropped out the whole upper two thirds. had it printed and it looks awesome.. i used a place called pixel outpost, i think they are closed now, just google pano printers.. there were alot out there.
