I have several photos taken with an iPhone 5 that were taken using a smaller resolution to save memory, however now that I need to get them printed it has turned out to be a problem... Any good tips on how to increase the pixel size of photos by about twenty percent without losing (much) image quality...?

Thanks
:yes:

I have to agree with Ariel Scratch. I usually set my iPhone to 'lower quality' pics whenever is a daily usage but when I'm on a party or trip to somewhere I like, I set up HDR and BOOM!!!

Ok well yea I understand that it does decrease quality, but I was just wondering which was the best way (software) to do it. I'll just use photoshop or something I guess. The printer I'm using (print24) said they can do it automatically but then I wouldn't have any kind of guarantee so I think I'll do it myself first and see how bad it gets...

Apparently theres specific software for it too but not really worth it for just one time Blow Up - Alien Skin Software

Every picture program can do this for you, 20% is not much but definitely will make the quality worse. And i dont think there will be difference if the printer software do that for you. Example for free software is irafnview, its free and very easy to use!

"Perfect Resize" in adobe photoshop is really the best way to do it. It uses fractals to blend pixels together and kind of spoofs higher resolution through interpolation. There are other pieces of software (both paid and freeware) that are more focused on this and do it for you, but if you already have photoshop, I can't really see any reason why you'd need to download something different since this feature works quite well.

My dad has this old point and shoot camera that takes pictures in 72ppi (which is atrocious by todays standards), but he loves the damn thing and its easy for him to use so he uses it regularly. I've made several of his pictures large enough to actually use via photoshop and perfect resize.
