Question Picture is Pixeled

Hi there everyone! I am new to the forum and to Photoshop cs. I have a picture that is very tiny. It measures 220pixels X 144pixels. I want to make it larger so i can see faces. I already know how to enlarge the picture but everytime i do i get the same thing, it looks pixely. I don't know what to do and I am hopeing that someone may be able to help me. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!

From what I understand, you get the best image if you enlarge photos under CS2 in 10% increments at a time.

Meaning, so for a 10% increase in size you select 110% in image size

after a really quick play with image in size it is posted, you would probably be best to try and scan it at a much higher resolution as there simply is not the pixel information present

Is the image really on 1" x 1.75"? If this is the case and you have it in hardcopy, you would probably be best to get it scanned at a minimum of 600dpi and then work on it from there.

Sorry, shyngentle. PS can do many wonderous things but it cant create something that wasnt there in the first place.
No matter what technique you use to enlarge, smooth and sharpen the image you wont ever be able to see their faces properly, the data just isnt there. Something as unique and identifyable as a human face just cant be recreated through progressive enlargement (or any other technique) from a skin coloured splotch and a couple of dark pixels where the eyes should be.
