    Thanks for sharing.

    I used to use Alien Skin Blow Up (http://www.alienskin.com/blowup/index.aspx) but the result is not as expected.

    OnOne Perfect Photo Suite 5.5 patch [PC]

    The two best programs for enlargement are indeed OnOne Perfect Resize 7 (part of Perfect Photo Suite 5.5) and PhotoZoom.

    They both use pixel interpolation (google that for more info) and they both produce quite different results - but both are excellent. PhotoZoom is particularly good for blowing up low-res jpegs.

    I use Perfect Resize most but sometimes PhotoZoom is subjectively "nicer" depending on the subject matter.

    Here's the patch for OnOne Perfect Photo Suite 5.5: http://ifile.it/p7s402v

    Pass: www.printroot.com

    Download the full (demo) OnOne Perfect Photo Suite from here:

    http://www.ononesoftware.com/support/360/ then register it using patch.

    That will never work, enlarge an image without quality loss

    The point is that when you enlarge a photo - the bigger you make it, the further away you view it from; that is to say, if you are looking at a 5" x 7" photo you get up close to it but when you look at a 32" x 42" print you stand further away.

    "Quality" is a slightly subjective term, anyway. Yes, it's true that if you blow a print up huge (using a good interpolator like the ones we're talking about) and put your eyeball right up to it and compare it with the original (smaller) print, you will see the "loss" of quality, but when viewed from the correct (natural) viewing distance, you will not notice that "loss".

    The point is these interpolation methods allow you to enlarge images massively and you still retain the same (or even better) SUBJECTIVE impression of sharpness and detail.

    PhotoZoom also does a superb job of smoothing low-res jpeg artifacts - experimentation and testing is key to getting the best results.

    the problem is how large you want to resize, 200% , 300%???
    no one app can work it prefect
    the simple way is
    try it in photoshop
    enlarge 10% each time, when the image look blur, sharpen it , and enlarge it again

    I recomend to use Photoshop, you can also automate it using "actions" menu

    For me, Photozoom quality is better thank Perfect Resize but it needs to export the resized image into another file. Instead Perfect Resize is able to enlarge the current working image and It preserves transparency.
