Increasing resolution of photo with Photoshop or Lightroom?

6 months 4 days ago #727697 by Sawyer
Can a photos actual resolution be increased using either Photoshop or Lightroom?  I know Topaz Labs has AI program that will do it, but curious is this something that can be done manually?

The images don't gain resolution. The process you are talking about originally started with Genuine Fractals. A process where you could increase the size and number of pixels of you image without losing image quality. This was good for printing. Adobe came out with their own way to do this called Super Resolution. You turn your image into a raw file. You then go to enhance and choose Super Resolution.

The recorded image will always stay the same because no software
can ADD to the details it contains. Every pixel will be treated in a way
to increase the file size in terms of pixels but details remain the same
thus the observable lower sharpness — that is pretty much irrelevant
when the final image is meant for a billboard for example.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
