welcome to RP, beaner

there are folks here who go to much greater extents on this than i do, so i'll just say that i usually just use the resize tool in paint shop pro, and let the others explain what they do.

you also might do a search on this in the forums. i know there are discussions on it here.

Craig

Hi Beaner,

Depends on the quality of the picture you've got, and just how big you want to make it.

To get significant enlargement, the picture quality would have to be excellent.

But even with the best picture using the best technique, you can expect deterioration in quality, the larger the blow up, the more noticeable it will be.

I know this doesn't totally answer your question, but it may give you an idea of what is viable. For instance if you expect to get a 10x8, then expect a severely degraded picture. Oops sorry, your picture is square, but you get my drift.

Up Size

Genuine Fractals is the industry standard for both platforms, but there are many other solutions. Essentially you want to to increase size in 10% increments. It would be helpful if you provided: target size for your 1 1/2", what editing software you have, and which OS...skip

Resizing

If you use Photoshop there is a (free) enlarge action that works quite well. Look on actioncentral for it. If not you can increase the image size by 10% at a time until you have the image the size you want. This works most of the time. I use Studio Artist alot as it is resolution independant and can produce extremely large images without quality lose, but it is a Mac only program and unless you are into photoart painting it is a little expensive.
