You might try scanning the pic at a high resolution...others probably have many different ideas.
What I've also done before is taken a close-up pic of the originial with a good digital cam and then enlarged it on my PC.
Good Luck

Most "good" image editing programs use a "best" guess method when enlarging photos to make corrections when enlarging. However, you simply can't put more information into a photo that isn't there. All that hollywood stuff you see when they take a blurry, long range photo and "enhance" it to get a clear, crisp photo is simply not possible.

A trick with Photoshop is to enlarge your photo by 110%, several times, as needed. Be sure to have "Bicubic Smoother" checked. Remember, you can't add detail, but you can prevent losing detail.

If required, you could also add an Unsharp Mask. See PS help for details.

Probably the nearest thing to a "free" Photoshop is GimpShop. It is open-sourced and just keeps getting better. Many advanced features in PS are not used by most, anyway. I use PS, so I'm more familiar with it. Remember, when enlarging a digital image, you're just making the pixels larger, so you can only go so far before it really gets noticeable.
