How do I enlarge an image,


Recommended Posts

You can't enlarge by ay large amount without incurring pixelization - which you see as blurring. You could try running Effects > Photo > Sharpen to minimize the blurring.

Using percents: just type them into the resize dialog. There is a place near the top where you can input them.

This has some clever algorithms for enlarging.

'Super Eagle' works well - it places the enlarged image on the clipboard - so select new image then paste after running the effect.

Enlarging an image is tough for a computer to do.  It basically has to "guess" at what the pixels it's adding in are.  Shameless plug: you should check out my tutorial about DPI.  It talks quite a bit about dealing with image size and what is and isn't possible.  SPOILER ALERT: To get a bigger picture, you need to take a bigger picture.  :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
