I have taken some pictures of my daughter riding and I don't have a long zoom. So the pictures are cropped quite a bit one picture that I would like to make a canvas print out of is 1589 x 2383 pixels.

When I export if I set the size to be the same as the canvas then LR will enlarge it. It looks to me like it does a good job.

For doing this sort of thing would Perfect Resize (gen fractals) do a significantly better job, in your opinions ???
Or is lightroom good enough.

So I am taking 3MP (ish) and printing a canvas of say 20cm by 30cm

Cheers

I've got GF6 and I use it for upsizing screenshots for the book. It's ok, but I've always been quite impressed by LR's upsizing. Why not try the trial and see how you get on with it.

Got the trial, tried it and for the sizes I want (non billboard) I think victoria may be on track, as usual, LR seems to do a pretty good job. Just wanted confirmation that I am not missing something if i went for LR. Looks like I will use the trial and remove.

Good advice as always !!
