I frequently receive a small gif that may be around 85x85 pixels at 72 dpi and someone will want me to enlarge this graphic to be 300 or 400 pixels for print purposes. Of course, the image looks horrible when blowing it up and if there is text on the graphic - which there always is - it is unreadable. Are there any tips to salvage an image like this, or do i have to continue what i have been doing - creating a new document at 300 dpi and basically recreating from scratch? If you'd like an idea of the kinds of images i'm working with, they are state seals such as the one at the following url: http://www.sos.state.ia.us/
Thanks so much in advance!
