image resolution

Hello experts.
I got an image size 150 x 150 pixels BMP or JPG
when I make it bigger using mspaint or paint 3d

it loses resolution, becoming bigger blurry

is there any software or visual c, or visual basic source
that i can use to make it  sharper again?

Since bitmap images are actual (not lossy) images, increasing the resolution normally just leads to pixilation (as you saw).

You can try the technique below with Photoshop

This is one I have used occasionally.  Results seem to vary depending on the original image, so your results may vary.

At the end of the day it's hard to "make something out of nothing", but some intelligent smoothing can sometimes improve overall appearance of the photo.
