Need to turn that postage stamp-sized snap taken on your mobile into a life-size poster? OnOne Genuine Fractals 5.0 could turn out to be a lifesaver. This Photoshop and Photoshop Elements plug-in lets you enlarge digital images way beyond their original size, while sacrificing little quality.
The ability to beef up the resolution of an image by adding extra pixels to it isn't new. Most scanners and digital cameras offer such an interpolation option under a variety of guises. But getting decent, unfuzzy results is tougher. OnOne Genuine Fractals 5.0 takes a fresh approach. It analyses blocks of pixels looking for repeating patterns and stores these as resolution-independent fractal algorithms - this latest version of OnOne Genuine Fractals 5.0 claims it can resize up to 1,000 percent without loss of detail.
