Questions and Answers

Why do images in social media have such poor quality?

Photos you receive via WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook & Co. are automatically resized or reduced in size by these services so that sending or downloading is quick and the data volume is as small as possible. On the part of the provider and of course also on your side as the user. By comparison, if you send a photo of about 4 MB in size via WhatsApp, the image reaches the recipient with a size of about 200 KB. So you can imagine how much of the image’s information that is not directly visible is lost. If you’re watching the image at the low resolution of a smartphone, you won’t remember it. On a 4K monitor or if you want to print the image, you will notice the difference immediately! You can now improve these photos with Photo BlowUp!

What resolution can I increase my photos to?

Our Photo BlowUp software supports an improvement or change in photo size of up to 700%. So you can create XXL poster photos on canvas, print posters, enlarge an Instagram image, enhance WhatsApp images and generally easily create posters in XXXL.

How does photo enlargement work?

Enlarging images without loss of quality – is that even possible? First of all: Yes, that’s possible! For example, if you open a photo under Windows and then zoom into a section of the image, the image quality will suffer at some point and the image will then become very pixelated. That look familiar?

Photo BlowUp includes a technology that smoothes and improves these pixels. So you can enlarge your photos or change the size of the photos with just one click. What sounds easy is a very complicated process. Internally, each image is converted into vectors, including objects detected on the image. This vectorization then allows an enormous enlargement with constant sharpness of the image to be created. Whether JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF or BMP: The technology integrated in Photo BlowUp allows an enormous magnification without interference. Enlarge image or enlarge images completely automatically

Why is Photo BlowUp also available as a plugin for Photoshop?

This is very simple: Adobe has developed a plug-in format with 8bf, which Adobe itself uses in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements. This format has become the standard and has also been supported by products such as Paintshop Pro, Corel Photo Paint, Corel Draw and even Gimp for several years. If you use Photo BlowUp as a plugin, you can continue working with “your” preferred image processing, but you do not have to do without the functionality of Photo BlowUp. That’s why Photo BlowUp is also available as a plugin for Photoshop and therefore for all other compatible programs.

Does Photo BlowUp have batch processing?

Yes! you can enlarge as many photos “in one go”!
