Super Resolution enables you to get the most out of your images by intelligently improving image quality while maintaining sharp edges and color accuracy. Powered by AI technology, Super Resolution increases the width and height by 2x each for a total of 4x pixels. This is perfect for making large prints or simply improving the quality of any image, even ones that are cropped super tight. The feature supports most file types including JPEG and TIFF.
In the Enhance Preview dialog box, select Super Resolution. The estimated completion time to enhance the image is displayed at the bottom. Once enhanced, click and move the cursor to see other parts of the image. You can also hold the cursor to see the before and after effect on the image.
