simplest interpolation uprez software

I have some ~ 1MP images that are fine in 4x6 or OK in 8x10. However, I envision getting a big noisy at my target 12x18 or 16x20 ultimate target.

I'm don't buy into the need for the ~320pixels/per inch, as I have some great ~6-8MP JPGs that are on my walls at 20" x 30" and look great.

So do I need photoshop or will Elements do this interpolation.

A few of the images have some visible noise, but I can't seem to download noise ninja, anyone have a link?

Thanks.

I use Genuine Fractals to uprez. It's a plug-in for pretty much any version of Photoshop, including Elements I believe. Works MUCH better than Photoshop alone.

Thanks, I might get elements and try genuine fractals. I am also going to print 4x6's and photograph them with a 10mp camera and see how that works.

I would highly recommend Genuine Fractals. I've taken Hasselblad negatives and was only limited by my printer of 64 inches wide. I was able to get them to 80 inches and still would have had a great print, no artifacting at all.

I'll be working with 8-bit JPGs and Elements 7, do you see any limitations there?

Genuine Fractals 6, which is the most recent version, is compatible with Elements 4 and up. So no limitations there. I only used 8 bit TIFF files, which at gray scale 64x64" and 180 DPI were about 250mb.
