Point well taken, Hellena.
That has not been a problem I thought about because I usually have the
original image as is, then I save it in different permutations for printing:
colorized for palladium, bitmapped for solarplate, 300 ppi negative for gum,
etc. That way I can always go back to the original and enlarge in
Photoshop. But I will make sure now not to run the mistake of enlarging my
bitmapped or halftone screened positive.
Thanks for the input,
Chris
