    Why do you want to increase its size like that? Usually, you want to make images as small as possible with the least amount of reduction in quality. Why would you want to do the reverse?

    Dan's content is irregularly read by handfuls of people. Join the elite few by reading his blog:, following him on Twitter: or reading his fiction: but NOT by Clicking Here!

    Dan also writes content for hire, but you can't afford him anyway.

    If you mean the actual size I use gimp and use the scale image feature. You can download Gimp for free. Open up your photo inside there and use the Image tab, select scale image and change the dimensions to whatever you like.

    I would use Photoshop, but if you never used it before it is probably massive overkill, but once you learnt to use it very powerful graphic software

    I use free program called irfanview. You can modify your images easily with it in any way you like.

    I recommend Photoshop as well. Go into image then image size. You can resize the photo here. You can also play around with the resolution from Low to Maximum when saving for the web. When you change the resolution to save at, the file size changes, you can see this in the lower left corner of the screen.

    Best of luck.

    Yup. Photoshop would do the trick. You ca make it as a smart object so you will not loose the image quality while scaling.

    Open your selected image with photoshop, and save as new one, then you'll get a popup menu to increase its quality, select max.. thats enough.. best of luck bro..
