“Which is the best software for resizing pictures without losing the quality? Please help, I need to know which software is best to use to resize photos without losing picture quality. I need to make a small picture real big to use to put on a race car trailer as a wrap.” —— Answers Yahoo

People who want to enlarge images have the three main reasons: for converting a digital photo for an enlarged hard print, for flipping a photo from vertical to horizontal and streching it and for making an obscure image area more clear.

As any guy who has dabbled with graphic tools will tell you, enlarging a raster or bitmapped image from its natural size results in blurring and fuzziness. In general, a loss in quality. Is there any software to enlarge pictures without quality loss?

Lucily enough, you can try Reshade Image Enlarger which is a stand-alone image resizing application that offers the highest quality photo enlargement available for your computer without the loss of sharpness or detail that you would normally expect.

Reshade Image Enlarger can resize images without the usual blur, jagged edges, halos, loss of sharpness or detail associated with image enlargement. Create accurate, crisp clear and photorealistic enlargements at almost any zoom factor.

Key Features of Reshade Image Enlarger

1. Get crisp-clear contours at almost any zoom

2. Remove blur and refocus fuzzy images

3. Perfectly highlight even the finest details of your photos

4. Subtly reduce photo defects, noise and other artifacts

5. Quickly batch process and crop all your images, with just a few simple clicks

Detailed guide to enlarge images with Image Enlarger

Step 1: Open an image

You can open an image with any of the methods:

1) Click “Open” or go to “File” -> “Open” to open an image

2) Drag and drop image files

3) Use keyboard shortkey: Ctrl-O

Step 2: Resize an image

1) Start with Pixel Dimensions section. Here, you can change image width and height with one of the following methods:

A: Typing the new value in the Width and Height field

C: Dragging the label

2) Then, you can change image resoultion through one of the following methods:

A: Typing the new value in the Resolution field

B: Scrolling the mouse while the cursor is in the field

C: Dragging the label

3) The drop down menu adjacent to the width/height fields is used to select the width/height units. The drop down menu next to the resolution is used to select the resolution unit. Make the appropriate selection from the drop down menus. Drag the Pan Rectangle across the right panel using the left mouse button if the image becomes larger than the left panel

4) The lock button next to the width/height fields allows you to maintain the image aspect ratio when selected. Any change in one dimension will cause a corresponding change in the other value to maintain the aspect ratio and keep the images from stretching.

5) Finally, the Screen Resolution drop down includes a list of standard screen resolutions where you may select any to be assigned as the width and height for the resized image. Here are some things to keep in mind when using the Standard Screen Resolution dropdown:

A: If the lock/unlock button is in the unlock state, the selected Screen Resolution will be applied as-is. The image will be center cropped if both Crop and Constrain checkboxes are selected. Otherwise, the image will be stretched.

B: If the lock/unlock button is in the lock state and the Crop checkbox is not selected, only one value from the Screen Resolution will be used while the other value will be calculated to keep the image aspect ratio unchanged.

C: If the lock/unlock buttons is in the lock state and the Crop checkbox is selected, both values will be applied and the resized image will be cropped in one direction to have an aspect ratio suitable for the new size.

6) If you need to crop the image, you may use select the Enable checkbox in the Crop section. Once enabled, you can use one of the eight handles on the Crop rectangle in the right panel.

Image Resizer, enlarge images without quality loss

A: If the Constrain Proportions checkbox is selected, the width and height ratio of the cropped area will be maintained.

B: If the lock/unlock button is in lock state and Constrain checkbox is unselected, the width and height ratio of the crop rectangle will not be maintained. However, the value of the width and height (shown on document size panel) will be revised automatically to keep the image outstretched.

C: To center the cropped area, select the Constrain checkbox and click on the Center button. To reset the cropped area, unselect the Constrain checkbox and click on the Reset button.

Tips: Alternatively, you may type in the crop rectangle size by right-click inside the right panel. A small window will be shown so the user can enter both width and height values.

7) For the remaining Reshade Image Enlarger features, use the slider bars. For more precise control, use up/down arrows when the slider is selected. Enter values in the corresponding text-fields.

Tips: You may use decimals for the zoom value. See the Information About Specific Reshade Settings section for more details.

Step 3: Save an image

You can save an image with either of the two

1) Click “Save” button or choose “File” -> “Save” from the menu

2) Use the keyboard shortcut: CTRL-S

No one likes a dead iPhone. If you recently updated yours to iOS 7.1, you know how much of a drain Apple’s latest mobile update is on its battery life -- and on your patience.

Don’t despair. We’ve got you covered with these six quick and easy iPhone battery boosting tips and tricks. You’ll be back up and running in no time (hopefully not into people and walls and stuff while walking and texting).

1. Trim the fat: shut down all unnecessary apps. If you’re done posting selfies on Instagram, close it. While you’re at it, shut down your email, Safari, Facebook, Twitter, or anything else that’s open and doesn’t need to be. Apps left open continuously leech power from your battery continuously. No bueno.

To shut down open apps, double-click your iPhone’s Home Button and swipe up on each one to close it. Boom. Done.

2. Let the Wi-Fi rip. Enabling Wi-Fi helps your iPhone gobble up less power when you're doing something on it that needs to access data. To enable Wi-Fi, go to Settings, choose Wi-Fi and log into a Wi-Fi network. Good to go.

3. Chill on the screen brightness. Turning on the Auto-Brightness feature stretches your battery life by allowing the screen to adjust according to the current lighting conditions. You can also simply manually dim your screen.

To enable Auto-Brightness, go to Settings, choose Brightness & Wallpaper and set the Auto-Brightness to On.

To dim your screen brightness manually, go to Settings, choose Brightness & Wallpaper and drag the slider to the left, kind of like rejecting a match on Tinder, but way less cool.

4. Ditch push notifications from apps. They mostly annoy you anyway, right? No one wants LinkedIn push notifying them every time a hiring manager wants to connect or a Facebook pop-up informing them that their ninth grade geometry teacher just commented on their status. Actually, we love most app push notifications (especially the retweet kind from Twitter), but, alas, they are big-time battery life suckers.

To turn them off, go to Settings, choose Notifications, then select the apps you want to disable and tweak your notification settings for each.

Pick from the following:
-- Change Alert Style to None.
-- Turn Badge App Icon off.
-- Turn Sounds off.

New notifications will be received when you open your push-happy apps again.

5. Fly in Airplane Mode in places with low and no cell coverage. Your iPhone blows a lot of battery juice trying to keep a connection to the local cellular network, which could suck up more power in low- and no-coverage areas. To combat this problem and boost your battery power, switch to Airplane Mode by going into Settings and selecting it. We don’t suggest trying this trick if you’re expecting an important call; Airplane Mode doesn’t let you make or receive calls.

6. Give location services the shaft. Apps that love location services, like Google Maps, Siri, Flipboard, to name a few, are notorious battery life slayers. To see which apps have recently used location services, go to your iPhone Settings, select Privacy and choose Location Services. From here you can turn off location services for individual apps.

To disable Location Services altogether, go to Settings, choose Privacy, select Location Services and simply switch the feature off. You are now off the grid. Well, mostly.

Apple appears poised to continue its string of setting new year-over-year records for quarterly iPhone sales, based on new data from Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty. According to Huberty's "AlphaWise" smartphone tracker, Apple is on track to ship 42 million iPhones during the January-March quarter, topping the March quarter record of 37.4 million iPhones set last year.

Morgan Stanley's AlphaWise tracker follows Google Trends data, and the firm touts that it has been more accurate than analyst consensus in recent quarters. Analyst consensus and Morgan Stanley's own supply chain estimates have been pegging Apple's iPhone shipments for the quarter at 38 million units, but demand numbers appear likely to push that number up.

Apple projected to set new March quarter record with 42 million iPhones shipped

The strong demand appears in nearly all geographical regions, with U.S. carrier and retailer promotions in particular being cited for increasing customer interest.

One area that has not fared as well is China, which is seeing weaker momentum this quarter due to the earlier launch of the iPhone 5s/5c in that country. New iPhones have typically debuted in China several months after the first wave of launches, but Apple made strong efforts to ensure that China was included in that first wave for the latest iPhones.

The January addition of China Mobile as an iPhone partner is offsetting that loss of March quarter momentum in China somewhat, but not enough to turn the overall trend for the country positive.

With Apple's next smartphone still months away, fans have been gobbling up iPhone 6 rumors faster than Pac-Man on a power pill bender. However, even the hottest rumor mill in tech can't turn this device into a winner. Based on everything we know now, the next iPhone will be a year late and a bitcoin short of the competition, doing nothing to slow Apple's descent from smartphone pioneer to high tech has-been. Here are six reasons why the iPhone 6 has already lost.

Weak Camera Features

While many still like the quality of the current iPhone 5s' 8-MP low-light-friendly sensor, it captures half the detail while offering none of the powerful image-processing features of its competitors. While current rumors peg the iPhone 6's camera at either the same 8-MP or a slightly higher 10-MP, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is about to launch with a 16-MP shooter, real-time HDR and goodies like Eraser Mode, which removes photobombers from your pictures, and Best Face, which helps you choose a different expression for each person in a group shot. Sony's upcoming Xperia Z2 takes the megapixel war a step further on Android, going with a 20.7-MP lens while Nokia's Lumia 1020 Windows Phone continues its 41-MP dominance.

Apple could surprise us all by including some more shooting modes and filters in the iPhone 6, but it would probably still be behind the likes of Samsung, LG and Nokia. Users looking for a superior camera experience have no reason to wait for Apple to get its act together.

Poor Battery Life, No Removable Battery

If you don't like carrying a charger around with you, you'll probably be disappointed in the iPhone 6. The iPhone 5s and its puny 1,560 mAh battery lasted just 5 hours and 46 minutes on the Laptop Mag battery test, slightly below the 6-hour smartphone average and hours behind leaders like the 11-hour and 15-minute Galaxy Note 3. While it is possible that the iPhone 6 will include a higher-capacity battery than its predecessor, the latest rumors peg it with a much-larger 4.7 or 5.5-inch display (perhaps one model with each), which will undoubtedly consume more power.

If you're not happy with the iPhone 6's likely short battery life, you won't have many options. While Samsung's Galaxy phones and some LG handsets allow you to swap out your battery for a higher capacity unit or a backup of the same size, the iPhone 6 will probably ship with a Liquidmetal, unibody design that has a sealed back panel. You'll have to opt for a battery case if you want extra juice.

No NFC

While just about every other phone on the market, most tablets and a slew of laptops now feature Near Field Communication chips, Apple won't touch this new technology with a 10-foot poll. Even as more stores and vending machines allow you to pay with a tap, digital locks let you tap to get into your house, and a slew of peripherals use one-tap pairing, Tim Cook & Co. have shunned NFC. Considering that NFC debuted in 2011 -- 3 iPhone generations ago -- we can't imagine Apple changing course now.

Too Few Sharing Options

I have an easier time getting a 2-year-old to share than an iPhone. While Android has a universal sharing menu that lets you send content to any share-capable service, iOS treats every app as an island unto itself. For example, the Safari Web browser can share with Facebook, Twitter, email and SMS messaging, and the iPhoto app lets you share with Flickr and iTunes as well.

Since neither of these preloaded apps have heard of Google+ or Pinterest, you can't share to them. However, on Android, I can share from any content app to the most obscure social network or messaging service (ICQ, anyone?), as long as I have it installed. Unless Apple makes a major change to its operating system, which is unlikely, the iPhone 6 will suffer from the same, lame sharing problem.

Weak Keyboard

The iPhone 6 may have a higher resolution screen and a sleeker design, but neither of those things will help you make fewer typos or answer the boss's urgent email any faster. Like its limited camera features and woeful sharing, the iPhone's keyboard seems to be frozen in time.

Unlike most Android keyboards, Apple's has no haptic feedback, no trace (aka Swype) functionality and no ability to learn your patterns from your social networking/email accounts. And because Apple thinks it knows what you need more than you do, iOS doesn't allow you to install a third-party keyboard. It's possible iOS 8 will allow more freedom, but we have no reason to believe the iPhone 6 will be any different from previous generations.

Limited Customization

You don't have to be a hacker to make major changes to the look and feel of your Android phone. You can add widgets to the home screen, arrange your icons in any pattern you want or even install a completely new launcher.

Apple's design philosophy, which shouldn't change with the iPhone 6, is to design for the lowest common denominator and offer the fewest choices possible, not letting you change much about the look and feel of the UI. Those giant training wheels may have been an advantage for Apple when most users were on their first smartphone, but it's now 2014 and most consumers know how to operate a mobile device and want more control of it.

The gorgeous device you see pictured above is not The All New HTC One, but it does provide our best look yet at HTC’s upcoming new flagship smartphone for 2014. How does that make sense? It’s actually a dummy — an exact replica modeled after the real device that is used in display arrangements in retail shops.

EBay France seller dummy_store has managed to get its hands on the model ahead of The All New HTC One’s launch, and its photos give us the clearest look yet at HTC’s upcoming hero phone.

New leak shows clearest images yet of All New HTC One

Dummy_store’s model jibes exactly with the various leaks we have seen up to this point, but thankfully the shop’s photos aren’t blurry and grainy like the ones seen in earlier leaks. As has been the case in the past, dual rear camera lenses and a dual LED flash can both clearly be seen on the back of the device.

According to earlier reports, The All New HTC One specs include a 1080p full HD display that measures 5 inches diagonally, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, a 2,600 mAh battery, at least 16GB of internal storage and Android 4.4.2 KitKat with HTC’s new Sense 6.0 software. Another recent leak suggested that the new One’s rear cameras will still be 4 megapixels like the current one, but they will support 3D shooting and effects.

HTC will unveil The All New HTC One during a press conference on March 25th and BGR will be on hand reporting live.

It's no secret that the iPhone 6 is going be a big launch, as Apple will finally offer a bigger display to better challenge the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets. In anticipation of huge demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

To put Apple's reported order in perspective, the company sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal first quarter that ended Dec. 28th, 2013. Is Apple really anticipating that large a leap in sales?

The iPhone 6 is expected to sport a super-strong sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera and perhaps even wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that this sequel will feature an even faster A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

According to a Citigroup Global Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple's smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23 percent in 2014, compared to 13 percent last year.

Overall, analyst firm IDC predicts that smartphone growth will slow in 2014 to 19.3 percent, down from 39.2 percent in 2013. The reason: average prices keep dropping as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth.
