Print needed of this image: 52cm x 40cm. It was captured on a mobile phone in 'live' view. (Not my pic).

Image size in PS: 45cm x 33cm 72dpi. Is there any way to get a great quality large print from this or will a smaller size be required? Or bin it?

With thanks.

Thanks. It looked so good on his phone that I was thinking an acrylic mount would be amazing with increased saturation. Will this be an option?

Yeah, that's a good point.  Acrylic (with increased saturation) will look amazing, colour-wise.

... but it would be pretty unforgiving, quality-wise.

Thanks.

How do I go about changing 72dpi to 300dpi? I assume there's right and wrong ways!

No, not at all.  Just do it exactly the same way you do when preparing any other photo for print, exactly as you learned in the Sharpening Class.

Thanks. I have never had to go down this road before. 

Flatten, crop (WxHxRatio) then apply my print sharpening prefs. Here's a 700x700crop preview at an 8x10inch size. I don't feel comfortable pushing much beyond this. What do you think?

Thank you! Client has opted to leave the project for now. He will take a new (non-live) pic on his next trip for a higher quality file. He wants it to be big!
Thanks for your assistance. I hope to revisit this again in the coming months.
