I would like to print in 16x20 some photos I took a few years back with a Fuji S2. The raw files are 12.6 Mb but they are actually 6 Mb res files using a default interpolation upres (they can be extracted as 6 or 12 Mb tiffs). So my question is: would it be better to extract the files in 6 Mb and then up res them in Photoshop, or in the default upresed size? Thanks in advance! Marie

Depending upon the quality, sharpness and subject, you should still get a decent print from your Fuji RAW file. I've 16x20's from the original 1D as well as an original Olympus E10. But, the subject matter partially allowed for it.

Thanks for your comment, but should I use the 6 Mb or the default 12 Mb size? Marie

I would use the 12mp if you can.  I still occasionally use some of my S2 raws and always try to start with the
12mp version 1st.  I can't remember what LR converts them to, 6 or 12.  As I recall in camera raw, you could get
to the 12mp conversion, but I am not sure anymore.

Hi Marie,

12mp, because it's the only way to not lose recorded data that is captured on a 45 degree rotated sensor. It's not full 12mp data, but it requires more than 6mp for the horizontal/vertical dimension.

Cheers,
Bart

The s2 files were really outstanding for it's day in a world of 6MP cameras. They actually resolved about 8MP. Use Adobe RAW converter. Set file size for largest available. Select an appropriate sharpening setting, I've used around 60-90 depending on the image. You should be able to get very good 16x20's, no further uprezing necessary.

Wow, thank you for all your answers! I'm happy to hear that I can use the original size to print in 16x20. Marie
