I'm assuming this is PSP 5 you're using.  You could try resizing it to a larger image size, or inversely shrink the printed image, but i don't think it's going to make much of a difference in the end.  You can only work with the pixels you've got and what you really want is to increase the number of them.  Resizing will increase the dpi but PSP can only interpret how it increases them.  In the resize menu there are a few ways to do this: try different resize types and specify the resolution in the actual\print size etc.  In the Page Setup you can specify how big or small you want your printed image.  But, once again, you can only work with what you've got.  Any way you can print and scan it back in at a high resolution?

Dont get me wrong, I think its a good idea, but I dont own a scanner. And i noticed that resizing doesn't increase the dpi. Thanks for the help.

Fles>Preferences>Rulers and Units tab.

You can set the dpi for saving here.

You can set your default resolution via file>pref>general pref>rulers and units tab.  But, if your going to create a new image that you think you may wish to enlarge later, you can set a higher resolution for that individual image in the same box you get for setting the size.  For example, if your default setting in preferences is 90 (ample most of the time) but you're about to create something at 4" x 6" that you might want to print out as a full full page, you could type in a resolution of 200 or 300 which would apply to that image only and wouldn't change your default.
