background image

I would like to use a photo taken at the site as a background image for my ArchiCAD model. The final rendering needs to be at least 11x17" and I am having trouble getting a photo that has a high enough resolution so that the background image is crisp when I render it at that size. The highest resolution I can get from my camera is 2080x1544. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In my experiences clients mostly view the impression on their smartphone or HD screen, meaning a large image at 300 dpi is wasted on anything but printing it out on such a big sheet of paper.


We settled for 195x135 mm at 300 dpi, which still prints fine upscaled to A4 (297x210 mm sheet) and is slightly bigger than a full HD image.


If you absolutely must have an image as of more 4K proportions, you would need a better camera, I'm afraid.

If you really need a higher resolution photo, you could upscale, antialias and maybe denoise your photo in a photo editor like Photoshop. You could also try Adobe Camera Raw's Enhance function if you've got the latest Photoshop and have a compatible file format.
