EDIT: I only just realized (too late) that this should be in the "Imaging and Video Editing Software" section... if anyone has the authority to move it, please do.


Has anyone ever used a photo up-sizing program?

I just downloaded the trial of one called "reshade", and i was surprised with the results.

First one is the unaltered photo (zoomed to around 600%)

This one has been put through the program magnifying it by 3.7% (the most you can get on the free version)(zoomed to TO ONLY 250%)

The uncropped version

As you can see, edges are a lot softer, but if you wanted to print some poster size images, This program would be great.

Has anyone used something similar? how did it go?

That's given a very nice result! Very useful for my low-res compact camera videos! Thanks for sharing!

I tried Genuine Fractals a while back in its version 5 incarnation and was impressed - see my thread Genuine Fractals 5. Trouble was that I ended up asking myself how often I would use it and decided to put off my purchase until I needed it. I'm still putting it off. :?
