A PC is great for editing digital photos and other images. You can change the colours, resize, crop, and so on. You can even reduce the resolution in order to make the photo smaller, such as to fit on a web page or in a document.
But what if you want to make the image larger? For example, so that you can print a full-page version of a photo. Although you might think it should be easy, it's not. Enlarging a digital image requires the computer to invent additional detail that isn't actually in the file. And although that's clearly impossible, it actually turns out that you can make a pretty good guess about what colour a pixel should be if you examine those pixels around it.
Which means that you can, after all, use a computer to enlarge a photo. And while it may not be quite as good as having captured the additional detail at the time, it's still impressive.
Reshade Image Enlarger Pro is, despite the name, a free download that does exactly that. It used to be a commercial product but is now free. And despite its age, it works just fine on Windows 10. Simply load the image of your choice, then play around with the controls and the image size to come up with the results you're after.
You'll find the download at http://reshade.com/ and it's around 43 MB. It's malware-free according to VirusTotal, and a reputable site in the opinion of Web of Trust.
