No. Genuine fractals may help a little but you will never magic back lost information.

Not true, I saw them do this exact thing on CSI Miami last week, the OP should try and contact the producers of the show and see what program they used.

Yes you can get rid of the blocky pixels but at the expense of making the image blurry. Photoshop and other image editor have ways of re-sampling images but none of them can add detail that is not there.

thanks for the reply.

Would you know the steps I could try in photoshop or what the procedure is called?

Thanks

Hilarious - thanks for that post. One of my pet peeves is TV shows that suggest infinite resolution at infinite enlargements.

I've always wondered where they get this magical software that cleans up pixels, adds detail, removes noise and lets you print an 8x10 from a 50 pixel by 50 pixel slice from a security camera photo. :D

Hey, that list forgot that electronic transfers of money are always accompanied by a scrolling progress bar and a counter that flashes when the transfer is complete :-(

To the original poster, the technique you are looking for is called interpolation, more specifically image interpolation. Give it a google but it isn't a simple process.

It's a very useful piece of software, called a 'Scriptwriter', but it has to be put on 'ignore any inconvienient reality that gets in way of the story' setting.

That setting is on by default. :D

So, any word on the Reality Edition release date for Scriptwriter?
