    You can scale down in size, but not up.

    You always lose quality when enlarging.

    All depends on the initial resolution of the image and also what you intend using the re-sized images for. For example if you are working with 72dpi images then you will struggle.

    What image are you trying to enlarge. Is it a photographic image or is it more like a logo etc

    I find I can blow up a raster image quite a lot and not lose quality by squinting my eyes when I look at it. ;)

    This is something we have to deal with every day. People come in with an image the size of a business card or -better still- stolen from a website and ask. "Can you blow this up to the size of a bill board" or "Can I have this on the side of my lorry?"

    Been there Paul. Feel your pain. :(

    I used get it ALL the time at the company I last worked at.
    Sometimes the logo would be so lo-res that I could hardly make out what it was.
    I even made an info-graphic to give to clients to explain the difference between vectors and rasters, lo/high res.

    Still didn't work.

    If the image is high quality to begin with, you can resize up without losing too much quality, using Perfect Resize or a similar plugin. You do still lose a bit, but for large format print, it's often acceptable as the viewing distance tends to be further away. 72dpi images, nothing you can do. I often end up tracing logos, finding them on brands of the world, or extracting them from PDF annual reports that I find online.

    You can use Adobe Photoshop for re sizing its very good option.
