Images for Billboards, anyone know ??
I have this progect in my head to produce some images to be used for billborads and offer a service to providing images for billboards and those plasticy canavs ones you see about at out door events.
However I know nothing at all and i am seeing if any of you do and if you would be able to help me out?
as for camerasI will be using a Nikon D3 and also the new Nikon D800.
so I would like to know what DPI i would have to have the images at for them to be useable.
any tips or information will be great on this subjct.
thanks in advance
I've seen numbers between 2dpi and 30dpi for Billboards. Depends on viewing distance, really. If your image looks good printed at 300dpi and held in your hand, that should be good enough and the rest, the printer should be able to do.
Consider a 10"x8" print at 300dpi. Print it at 10'x8', you've got 25dpi, but you'll be viewing it from much further away.

If you are using Photoshop then you can increase the size of the file by 4 with very little loss in detail which is good enough for billboards. :D
