We all receive photos from clients that contain too small a number of pixels to look good when output. No matter how much we explain to the client, they don’t always understand. They simply want us to fix it. You can open the file in Corel PHOTO-PAINT (or Adobe Photoshop) and use the Resample command to enlarge the photo, but that will rarely produce good results if you are enlarging more than 50%.

Back in July I told you about PhotoZoom Pro 3, an excellent commercial solution for this problem. Today I’m going to tell you about another solution, SmillaEnlarger, an open source solution. It can only be run as a standalone solution, but it does a pretty good job of enlarging low-resolution photos. Don’t expect miracles, just an improvement. Of course the price is right, it is free. For those who want a more full-featured solution, then PhotoZoom Pro 3 is a better choice.
