Picture resize with right resolution by using Photoshop CS3

I need resize a picture (Width: 227; Height: 150; Resolution: 72) to (WIdth: 551; Height: 174), but I don't what resolution should I input in Photoshop C3.  I have tried default resolution 72, but the picture looks not clear as original.

Please help.

because you are trying to increase the size of the image, you will loose detail and the picture will loose quality

resolution is only if the dimensions are in cm or inches; and should match print output.
e.g laserjet - 600dpi
inkjet - 300dpi.

If its just for screen, trying resize - bicubic smoother

Free photos, legitimate and cheaper than iStock (free is free) just watch for image restrictions, apart from that fill your boots.
