I’m new to photoshop and i was just wondering if there was a way to enlarge images with out any degredation in the quality of the image. I want it bigger without making it look crappier.

Thanks

Short answer: not really.
Long answer: UPsample in 10% increments. That’s about as good as it will get. There are 3rd party upsamplers (Genuine Fractals, for example) but they can’t do much of anything any better to small images, and even for images in the 10MB+ range, they are only minimally better (sometimes).

Josh,

Bite the bullet and rescan at a higher resolution

It’s what I tell all my customers with a scan that’s too small

Is genuine fractals the best and does it plug-in to photoshop?

Peter:

Yes and yes. But it still has limitations.
An old computing adage is GIGO – garbage in, garbage out. If there’s not enough data there, you can’t improve the image.

IOW, you’re not going to get a good 8×10 print out of a 200×300 pixel image no matter what you do to it.

Unless you’re a CSI employee with special access to secret software that even the Gubmint doesn’t have.
