    I did a search and couldn't find anything. Does anybody know how to make smaller pictures into hi res. I'm looking to print pictures out for Fan Fest and I can't figure out how to make full page photos look perfect. For example:

    http://images.packers.com/pg/2006-01-01/photo25.jpg

    I don't know how to make that a huge hi res photo, I've seen it done but I have no idea how. Thanks

    It's impossible once it's been shrunk to a smaller size you seriously reduce picture quality when trying to enlarge it.

    You have to get the larger original.

    you can try to find one on eBay

    Or you can contact packers.com to see if they sell larger prints of photos on their site.

    You can do a few things to the smaller image, but if not done properly it will drastically reduce the quality of the image.

    Depending on the dpi on the printer as well will determine the quality.

    I would suggest using Photoshop for resizing images, small to large and vice versa.

    It won't be perfect but a couple programs out there to help with enlarging (and cleaning up) photos are PhotoZoom Pro and NeatImage
