Making images larger often leads to pixelization and noise, especially if the image is low resolution to start with. That being said, it isn’t impossible to upsize an image using Adobe Photoshop and still be left with a usable photo–you just need to know the best way to do it! The folks over at Photoshop have made a helpful video outlining the correct way to do this:
So, not only is it possible to scale images to larger sizes, it’s actually kinda simple to do.:
- Using Photoshop CC, all you have to do is click on Image then select Image Size.
- Once the pop-up window appears, input the new dimensions for your image.
- Next, make sure the Resample box is checked (refer to the image below).
- Choose Preserve Details (enlargement) from the drop down menu right next to it.
To finish the enlargement, move the Reduce Noise slider to the right, increasing its percentage until you have the results you are looking for. Once you have settled on the right amount of Noise Reduction, click OK.
That’s all there is to it; just save your image, and you are good to go!
