I have some smaller pictures that i would like to make bigger without distorting it so badly, i want to print them off, but these images look like sh** when i make them bigger

Does anybody know a way to make pictures bigger without screwing it up? like a comp program or something?

You can't go from smaller to bigger without reducing the quality as far as I know.

If there aren't many pixels in the photo to start off with, it is very hard to make them bigger without distorting them...sorry :-/

It's like selling a car ... you can always go down but you can't go back up.

I think you're out of luck. If your pic isn't hi-res enough you're never going to get good quality out of a blow-up. You only have so much information to work with in those pixels. By blowing up your photo you're just making individual pixels stretch to two or three pixels.

You could do something with the "blur" tool on Photoshop, but in the end you're just going to make your pictures look kind of "plastic" by doing that - probably not what you want.

Have you considered asking this question in the Logos forum? There are many graphics experts there who could answer this question better than we could. It's worth a shot.
