    hello I have several thumbnails i NEED the information on asap, and they are too small to read. when i magnify them its all blurry. Is there anyway to enlarge the whole thing so i can read the writing on them. :confused:

    Thank you so much in advance!

    If you only have thumbnails, which are just lower-resolution versions of the original, then you're not going to be able to recover the original without luck and expensive software.

    Sounds like what I jokingly call "Muldaur Pixels", but "CSI" works too. The lab always seems to create perfect license numbers from 9 pixels...

    The only thing I can think of is to try some resampling when increasing the number of pixels (or >100% scaling). Preview only has "resample" on/off, but if you have Photoshop, you can change the algorithm and their settings.

    This isn't urgent in any way, shape, or form. Your title needs to have some semblance of the material within.

    A picture is only as good as its source. Seriously.

    If it's low resolution, you can't improve the quality. It's impossible.
