I don't think it's going to work for you. Even the 2"x 2.5"
is probably at 72 DPI. And to get a good print you'll want at least 150 - 300 DPI. Enlarging it more than the size you have will only make it much worse. Can you contact the photographer to get a large print?


RE: Help for enlarging web download images.

a 8 x 10 print will be a picture about 1800 x 1500 pixels. Even if you reset the DPI to 1200 there is not enough information in the jpg to resize and not get a bad picture. You may be able to use a capture of the picture and set the DPI to 1200 or 2400 and see if it will come out OK. Doubtful but worth a try.
