    Making a graphic bigger

    Hi,

    I am a newbie to graphics and was wondering if any of you could possibly take the image below and make into a 500px wide image. Right now it is 80 pixels wide.

    Thanks!

    Better re-construction of this artwork would require vectorizing it, which is rather time consuming

    I've Googled for "nissan owner first" and found quite good image:
    http://www.harrisonburgnissan.com/im...irst%20rgb.jpg

    Then I've re-sized it, sharpened, filled with colors (gray), replaced "Nissan" with a better version, replaced "Owner First" with text (Arial Black),
    And that's all
    Does it work for You?

    Because of lossy JPG compression, there were "artifacts" - visible square areas of slightly distorted colors. I've selected them with magic wand (+subtracting +feathering the selection...) and filled with plain gray instead. Same with white background.

    varelse did a remarkable job of enlarging and recreating that image (above) given the time constraints and the source material!
