Need to blow up a small photo to large for printing!

3 posts in this topic

I have several images (artwork) that are very small like 280 x 280 pixels. I would love to blow these up so that I can hang them up on the wall. When I do a print preview on the screen everything looks great but I think somehow when I print them (my husband has the printer in another country so can't actually try to print out yet..) I did download a photo enlarger called smilla...are there better options or tricks I can use to get quality print artwork? Thanks for your help!

If the images are photos you have pretty much no chance. You might be able to get them to look okay at twice the size but not to a size suitable for printing.

Read this:

There are tricks that can sometimes help enlarge images, but they may or may not work depending on the nature of the image. That is, it depends on whether it's a photo, logo, render, or whatever.

In general, no, it's not possible to enlarge such a small image without it looking like complete and utter garbage.
