How to Create Larger-Than-Life Images With an Image Enlarger?

In Luminar Neo, resizing an image to a specific pixel dimension is done during the Export process. You can export your image at its original size or enter new dimensions for the image to fit its long side or short side. Make an image bigger by specifying bigger pixel dimensions!

Why Our Image Enlarge Feature Is a Must-Have For Users?

In Luminar Neo, it’s super easy to enlarge a photo on Export. After you’re done editing the photo, simply input the desired size in the Export window, and you’ll receive your photo in the desired size. It’s that simple!

Elevate Your Design With Superb Image Enlargement

When you want to print a photo at a larger size, such as for posters, banners, or large-format artwork, you may need to enlarge the image to maintain high print quality. Artists and designers often enlarge photos to create wall art, canvases, or other decorative items.

Digital artists and photo manipulators often enlarge specific portions of an image to refine details, add effects, or create composite images.

Does image enlargement affect the overall image quality?

Yes, image enlargement can affect the overall image quality. When you enlarge an image, you are essentially stretching or interpolating the existing pixels to fill the larger canvas, and this process can result in a loss of image quality. However, Luminar Neo is designed to preserve image quality. To minimize the negative effects of image enlargement, it's important to start with the highest-resolution image available and be mindful of the desired size and the acceptable trade-off between size and image quality.
