Scanned photo at 300dpi AND 1200dpi (original size is 4x5) at 100%
Saved photo as jpg AND bitmap (thats now up to 4)
Opened in S-Spline Pro
Enlarged photo to 16x20 (all four saved photos)
Changed the dip to 100, 300, and 600dpi
Saved each as jpg and bmp (now we are up to eight)
PROBLEM: Each and every save is "fuzzy"
Only constant is size...original is 4x5 new is 16x20
Tried different combinations of dpi with same results from all.
Only conclusion I can come up with is either I am expecting too much from a program that is supposed to increase photo sizes to whatever I need. Or most likely, I am doing something wrong. So if anyone uses this program, could you possibly help me out?
Thanks and a hat tip from mr billGraphic Designs by B&B

S-Spline used to be one of the best, but at very high upsizes it can get 'cartoony'

I've done a few (far from scientific) tests with the demo versions and to my eye there was very little to choose between Genuine Fractals and S-Spline Pro. QImage didn't look quite so good (though it wasn't that noticeable) but it is a lot cheaper, which might be rather tempting.
I wasn't upsizing the pictures enormously (1.5x to 2x mainly) and it did seem that the type of image had some bearing on the the perceived results.
