    So does anyone know a simple way to convert near any image into Retina using Photoshop CS5? It seems like there should be some way to do it rather than redraw all images I need to be retina.

    Wouldn't free transforming (CMD+T) the scalable vector objects using the scale tool in the toolbar work for that?

    1. I'm on Windows for Photoshop, just as an fyi.

    2. There are no vector objects in my images; They are just... normal images. An example image would be:

    Then it is CTRL+T.

    If it is a pixel based images, you can still use CTRL+T, but expect pixelation.

    So there is no way for PS to calculate the pixels to keep it clear when it is pixel based?

    As far as I know, yes, especially if you quadruple the size of that object.

    Here is your example: (you have to click on it, due to it being a thumbnail)

    better than ctrl+t is to go to Image - Image Size - double the size and choose the appropriate resampling method.

    No.

    What you're asking for is the graphic design equivalent of the philosophers stone.
