Ignore the weeb name this actually works pretty well.

This for upscaling.

…which is exactly what TC wants to do?

Which is probably why he chose to quote that post and offer it a second vote in favor...?

That's not exactly possible. When you're upscaling, you're literally adding data that doesn't exist. Different systems do it differently, but none are fantastic at it. You can't actually add detail that isn't there. Windows scaling a smaller image up is sort of on the low to mid range in terms of quality, and will result in some blur. Photoshop is a bit more sophisticated, and can make better guesses at what each "missing" pixel should show, but at the end, it's still going to be blurrier than the original image, because all *any* system can do is guess to fill in the blanks.

There are other factors too, like the ratio of the source image's resolution to the upscaled one, the complexity of the image, etc...


I know, I know...though then again, I was speaking from mostly using Photoshop, and even THEN, the most I'd blow anything up would be in small increments (though again depends on original image quality in the first place. Something already large up to something a bit larger by maybe a hundred pixels you could skunk away with okay enough).

Anything much more significant I'd rather just find a much larger image and scale it down accordingly.
