Enlarging images in Photoshop is one of the program's basic features. It is important to understand this process increases the image and file size; while zooming, or making an image appear larger on the screen has no lasting effect on the image or file. Be sure to keep canvas size in mind when enlarging; the image may appear cut off, or cropped if the image size goes beyond the current limits of the canvas.
Things You'll Need

Open image file to be enlarged.
Select "Image Size," found within the "Image" option on the top toolbar. The "Image Size" box will appear.
Select "Percent" for the enlargement metric within the Pixel Dimension section.
(These two options are linked by default and are found to the right of the "Width" and "Height" boxes)
Enter desired percentage increase to image size in the boxes marked "Width" and "Height" within the Pixel Dimension Section.
Confirm enlargement by selecting "OK" button on "Image Size" box.
Tips & Warnings
