thanks Dwight...but that program seems like a cross between paint and picassa...
what he wants is something that uses interpolation ( I think thats what its called ) ...looks at surrounding pixels and then adds pixels to fill in to make the picture clearer...more detail...

If your talking about changing pixels, then you need more than a viewing program. You are actually editing the picture. Something like Photoshop, photoshop elements, gimp would do that for sure.

here is good explanation of interpolation: http://www.dpreview....y=interpolation


here is another good explanation: http://www.steves-di...nuary_2006.html
this one is probably more along the lines of what your looking for.

thanks starjax
I sent that 2nd link to client...I know so little about photo editing..but it, the (interpolation ) Expalanation fit what I remembered about the editing...the more pixels you have to start with the better ...his problem is.. the photos he wants to fix were taken with standard camera of his kids 20 + years ago and then scanned into his computer..I'll have him try the Qimage...it has a 30 day trial..I may download gimp myself to try to work on one for him...
