For all practical purposes, the answer is no. A picture cannot be made higher definition after the intial image has been processed and stored, although you can obviously make it higher resolution (If you fourfold the resolution, one of the old blocks will now take up four of the new blocks, so it will still look blotchy - however - when an imaging program has four blocks to play with, it can do some "smoothing" of irregular edges, which does go a bit towards making the picture look better).

Unfortunately - programs like CSI and NCIS give the impression that any photo can be made razor sharp - but they are exaggerating a principle to prove a point.

How big do you need the enlargement to be? If you are talking "maybe just twice the size", then there are some options available in packages, such as photoshop and photosuite (& others) do have the ability to "sharpen" images - but the effect is not as dramatic as people would like.

What is the best photo size for good quality digital photo prints from my Samsung tl205?


I always recommend setting the camera to take the largest size format at the highest quality or "resolution" settings the camera offers.

Using the largest size and resolution combination provides images with the most detail available in your camera. It will provide excellent results for standard 4 x 6 prints and you'll be glad you chose the larger format and resolution if you wish to edit, crop & enlarge any of your shots. At one point, you'll take a picture that you're going to want to enlarge and frame - but when you have your camera set for smaller images at lower resolutions, jagged edges and pixelization begins to appear in the image. The more you enlarge - the more noticeable it becomes. You see this for yourself by taking a picture of something with small size and low resolution settings and another picture of the exact same scene but with the largest size and highest resolution settings. Display the pictures on your computer screen and enlarge them both to 200% or more. Compare the details and edges of both pictures at the same percentage on enlargement to see what I'm describing.

The size of your pictures has no bearing on the cost of printing them. The only downside is the fact that your memory card will hold fewer pictures. This means you'll need to buy additional or larger memory cards if you find that you take too many pictures between the times you transfer to your computer.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I wish to enlarge a photograph from 4x6 to 5x7. Is this possible on this printer?


You can enlarge a photo to any bigger size that you require on any printer. However the clarity of the final product will depend on the resolution that that the original photo was taken at. If the camera resolution was anything abouve 5MP then you have nothing to worry.

Blurry enlargements


I suggest altering the settings a little and if that doesn't work try using a different software to enlarge images. Such as windows photo gallery. That's not too good for enlarging just good for keeping the quality up if that isn't good enough try using a free trial of photo shop.

How do I retouch my photos that have many color pixels missing?


You can use the "blend" or "smear" feature on either GIMP (free) or PhotoShop by Adobe. This basically has the same effect as rubbing your thumb over words on a freshly written page, smearing the adjacent colors to fill in the blank or degraded spots. It's a nice feature to help fill in "blank" spots in images, especially after editing them for concept drawings and such, or enlarging images which are low-resolution.

Be careful with the tool, you can quickly go overboard.

Printing an enlarged version of a scanned photo


The best way is to use software like Corel PhotoPaint and RESAMPLE the pix to the sze you want. YOu typically will get better resolution.

You could also try selecting the "Fit To Page" setting of the printer window before you tell it to print.

You can't edit the photos on the camera. The resolution is fixed after the picture is taken. All photo editing must be done on the computer. Zooming in is only temporary enlargement.

Fixing small objects


If you mean to enlarge a small low resolution image and make it a large image with good clarity and resolution, basically you can't really do this...

Well you can up to a point, say doubling the pixel size at maximum, but if you don't have the image size and qualitry to begin with, enlarging will rarely produce a clean image if you are enlarging it by a large factor.

Of course you can enlarge some images really well by say 25% by enlarging then using some sharpening filters like "Unsharp Mask" etc. You can get reasonable results this way, but if you are trying to say enlarge a 100 pixel wide image to 1000 pixels wide, it just won't work terribly well no matter how much sharpening or filtering you do!

Hope that helps!

Enlarging file size of pictures


That camera shoots at 7.2Megapixels at max resolution, that should print an 8.5x11 without any issue.

Check the settings on the camera to make sure that you've got it set to take "high" resolution, and not "low".

In the settings, there should be a resolution option that you can change. It's likely set to take lower resolution that what the camera can actually handle.
