Imagener by Kneson Software performs even BETTER than hardware photo enlargers. Imagener analyzes more of the image than a hardware photo enlarger can because of its digital nature and layered technology. A hardware photo enlarger can only analyze an image in two dimensions & mdash; exactly what its lens “sees.” Imagener analyzes the pixels of photos like hardware photo enlargers and analyzes the meaning of this content using modern C++ object‑oriented programming language techniques. This makes digital photo enlarging far more capable than hardware photo enlargers of old.
Realize though that no photo enlargement device or software can enlarge what simply is not there – and low resolution images or photos that do not contain much “information” (dots‑per‑inch) for sufficient content detection will yield varying results. Therefore, we recommend that all images be at least 200 DPI for purposes of enlargement, and 300+ DPI is even more recommended. We wrote about this in an article entitled “Image Resolution 101 – How and Why to Change Resolution in Photos and Images?” We extended this discussion in a later article entitled “Photo Resolution Computer & Printer Differences – How Computers Treat Image Resolution Differently Than Printers & How to Find The Resolution of a Digital Photo.”
