Does this work? I made it 2560 x 1600 for good measure ;)

When you change the image size in Photoshop, there's a pull-down menu at the bottom with some important settings. Use the "Bicubic Smoother (best for enlargements)" setting. I did that then applied a Smart Blur.

I think ByteOfApple did a great job, on my 27" iMac I can see the image very well, here are 800x800 screen grabs.
Dr Kevorkian94, something must be wrong with your monitor or eyes, sorry.

Unfortunately, because the original is a bitmap, this is the best I think you can expect with out recreating it. Photoshop is trying to determine what the new pixels need to be when enlarged. The process he used is the best but still limited because Photoshop is actually creating new pixels. If this were vector art it would be simple, such as created in Illustrator.
