    i have a shitty little flick that i would like to enlarge, but when
    i do, its all pixelated and shitty....the quality of the pic isn't so hot to begin
    with, so i want to make it a bit larger, not alot, but make it less pixelated when it
    is enlarged..
    i went into the 'image size' and tried
    to pump up the resolution, and then tried constraining the proportions,
    which sucked, and then not constraining the proportions, which just
    made it large and shitty...i'm sure the flick quality has alot to do with it
    any little tricks besides the image size reconnoitering?....what gives?

    it can't be done. if you have a low resolution image, it only has a certain number of pixels. you can make it larger, but you have to lower the resolution, so that the total number of pixels stays the same.

    basically, what i'm saying is you can't add pixels if they don't already exist.

    even tho u cant really do it u can sort of.

    duplicate the layer, set it to overlay. then gaussian blur the overlay about 3. then mess with the hue/saturation on colorize if needed.

    that should make it look a bit better.

    the only way to make the resolution better is to make it smaller.
