Enlarge image without sacrificing details

Specs: Windows XP, 250
I noticed a big change to this website, So I'm going to post this question here... Does anyone know of a program that enlarges photos without losing details? I'm in a situation where fraud was committed with checks wrote out to me, and were cashed by someone else.. Long story short, I have copies of the checks and they are very small and I can't read any info on the back sides to where they were cashed.. I'm wondering if there is any program out there that would enlarge them to where the info can be read off of them, or something that could scan the lettering.. I tried blowing them up with the pdf reader, and the Windows built in image viewer, and the info becomes pixely and blurry... Thanks a bunch...

Yes, there is a program called 'Perfect Resize', it was previously an add-on for Photoshop called 'Genuine Fractals', which is when I used it. I gather the new program is a standalone one and there's a 30-day free trial available HERE. Note that it does require fairly good images to start with but it's worth a try.

Incidentally, I don't know where you are, though I'm guessing the US, but in the UK we used to be able to get the actual cheque from the bank if fraud was suspected.

There is no programme that will overrule the laws of physics. The pixelalation you get is going to happen whichever application use to enlarge them, no way round it.

The only way you are going to get a readable enlargement is if the cheques were re-scanned and saved in an uncompressed format.
