    72dpi gif to print as 200dpi tiff or jpg

    Hello everyone, i have a newby question. I'm stuck with a few images that are 72dpi, 2"x2", 160x160px giffs and somehow need to be printed as 200 dpi 1.75"x1.75" tiffs or jpg's without too much quality loss.

    Any suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks a lot!

    What kind of image is it? Is it a picture or a simple graphic? If you don't have too many complex tonal gradiations you could try converting it to vector then scaling it up.

    Thank you

    Thank you,
    Unfortunately i couldnt convert images to vector graphics because i was limited to working with Photoshop only and they took too long to trace. But what did work (relatively nicely) is converting them to lab color and then manitupating lightness and color channels. Posterizing and blur combination made them look dissent.
