You can NEVER EVER increase image size without losing quality unless the image is vector based which photoshop is not. Thats one of the basic rules of image manipulation. However you can get close with some trickery and some expensive software. The software is called Genuine Fractals and is available from http://www.altamiragroup.com/ ...It attempts to convert the image into a type of fractal which results in fairly decent interpolation. Much better than photoshop can do on its own. (Genuine fractals is a photoshop plugin)

Just when I thought I was getting closer to your Photoshop pts you find a 500pt question.

Genuine Fractals is the only product I know that can do what you want.  But be warned it takes alot of RAM and if you have an older system you better bring a book because you may be there a while.  If you have the computer power it is a great piece of software that can perform some minor miracles.

the other trick is try to give a blur effect so the quality will lok a little bit better.

Blurring is by definition a loss of quality. Sort of an eye trick to do it that way. Usually helps to follow the blur with an unsharp mask. Still not perfect.
