i have a scene in a video that i am wanting to put in a print so is there a way of exporting it as a hi-res jpg ?
It's all about the pixel size I would say. check on photoshop the pixel size of the square you would like to print, then see if your video source is high quality enough?
*waits for someone to point to the thread where the OP was adviced to put their monitor on a scanner..
if your video is 1920 x 1080, you can print at about 6.5 inches by 3.5 inches. You can push it bit by upresing but the quality will be a bit blurry and artifacty. You can mask this a bit with noise or grain to signify "film", but it won't be sharp like a photo
never forget you can't create pixels where there's no pixels.
You're overthinking it. Just enhance the screenshot.
for UI screenshots for print, I usually bump the res up to 300 with "nearest neighbor" selected in the resample dropdown in PS. it keeps stuff crispy. not sure how that'll work for vid though.
I have to take a lot of screen caps for technical documentation. The only way I've found to optimize the printed output of a screen capture is to take the screen cap into PS, open up the Image Size dialog, UNCHECK "Resample Image". Then change the print dimensions to the size you need to output and the resolution will change according to what it needs to be to print crisply at that size.
Simply bumping it up to 300 dpi and resampling, even with nearest neighbor, will add a slight blur and anti-alias to it. If you want to keep your pixels crispy though, use the method I described.
nothing better than this..
