You may resize it using phtoshop ,

open the image > | + alt + command

or

Open the image > Image > image size > change it to the number u want.


If the pic is too small you may use some filters to resize it with high quality .


I hope I could help u .

Mac OS X has a built-in application called Preview that is quite capable for simple edits like resizing.

First, open the image in Preview (should be the default; if not, right-click the file or click the Action toolbar item (the gear icon) with the file selected and choose Open With and then Preview). Then click on the Tools menu and select Adjust Size. This will open a sheet asking for your desired resolution and dimensions. Type them in, unchecking the Scale Proportionally option if necessary to get an exactly square image. Click OK, save the file (I’d recommend saving it with a different name), and you’re done.



Please note, though, that upscaling JPG files will undoubtedly result in a loss of quality—sometimes a drastic one.

It looks like your version of Preview can’t resize images; I think many of the editing capabilities were introduced in 10.5 Leopard.

The simplest alternative I can think of is to download a free program like The GIMP. If you decide to download and use that, here is a tutorial on how to resize. The screenshots refer to its use in Ubuntu rather than OS X, but they are close enough that you should be able to figure it out.

You could also try looking through Automator’s actions, but I’m not sure if the Scale Images action is available in your version of OS X.

The best way will cost you. We use photozoom at work when a client sends us a low-rez file and refuses to spend the money on nice hi-rez version. It is not cheap but I think if you are going to be dealing with this problem a lot it is worth it.
All that being said a low-rez jpeg will never be as good as a hi-rez one no matter how much money you throw at it.

That's going to be one blurry image when you blow it up that much. Bumping it up from 72 dpi to 300 dpi is just making it add extra information it doesn't have and it's going to fill it in with garbage. Which in turn makes the image blurry.

If you need something to resize images for free, try gimp. Google it.

Try printing the jpeg out, scan it at 300 DPI, and see if you can zoom it to the size you want. That might be a solution for someone without any editing programs. This might work.. maybe. :]

NO.. this is what you need to do.. print out the image, then find a high quality scan and scan it in at like 900dpi or more if you can .. then you will be able to resize it easier..
