The Best Way to Enlarge Images Without Losing Quality (Tested Tools)

Looking for a way to enlarge images without losing quality? Some smart photo editing tools make it possible to easily enlarge images without handling the pixelation issues that arise when using a “dumb” tool to increase an image’s dimensions.

It takes just a few clicks. An enlarged version is then created using some clever algorithms. In this post, I’ll share my thoughts on five of the best image enlargement tools. These tools help you enlarge your photos without sacrificing quality.

My list of tools is as follows:

  1. ImgUpscaler
  2. Icons8
  3. UpscalePics
  4. GIMP
  5. ImageEnlarger

Let’s resize and enlarge images without losing quality with these powerful tools. I tested these tools and found them all worthy to use but let’s see which one works best for you.

Top 5 tools for enlarging images without losing quality

  1. ImgUpscaler


ImgUpscaler allows you to enlarge images without compromising the quality with the help of AI. It is a user-friendly tool that allows people to edit any image they want with a simple drag and drop option.

What is the best image enlargement tool for you?

I recommend you try them all out and possibly keep one or two on your computer. Each photo resizes differently. Tools that work best with animations or vector graphics are available. For landscapes and animations, ImgUpscaler performed better than others.

You still need to optimize your image once you’ve resized it so the larger image doesn’t slow down your website.
