Image enhancement, upscaling, and decompressing: what they are and how they differ

The Enhance & Upscale Suite allows you to enhance different types of images with just one click. It can handle a variety of use cases, ensuring the best image quality regardless of the device or circumstances in which it was captured.

Enhance improves the quality of the image (decompress, remove noise, make it sharper, restore details)
Upscale increases the resolution of the image by creating new pixels.
Decompress removes jpeg compression artifacts that appear after saving the image to jpeg with low or medium quality.

Key uses

Use Enhance & Upscale operations for:

Website Images: Create high-quality and high-resolution images for websites, ensuring they look sharp and professional.
Social Media: Enhance and upscale images for social media to make them stand out with improved clarity and detail.
Product Catalogs: Prepare high-quality images of products for catalogs or further background generation, ensuring they meet professional standards.
Archival of Old Photos: Restore and enhance old photos to preserve them in higher quality.

Enhancement types: How to choose the one that will work best with your image

Depending on the character of your design, you can choose between:

General improves resolution by adding new pixels to low quality images (compressed, blurred, pixelated, etc.). Suitable for most use cases, photos taken with your cell phone or digital camera where significant restoration is needed

Places was designed for advanced restoration of low-quality images of people, nature and architecture taken with cell phones or digital cameras

People is best for close-up photos of people, enhancing facial details

Digital Art is perfect for drawings, anime, or AI-generated illustrations

Text is best for product photos where it is important to preserve label details

Tips and Tricks

Depending on your needs, you can either scale up your projects by x2 or x4 with a single click, or define the width and height in the provided fields:

The output file size can be adjusted by specifying the values in percent or pixels. As soon as one of the dimensions is defined, the other is automatically adjusted.

If you need to crop or resize your designs to change the original aspect ratio, please use our Resize & Extend Suite.

You can apply Enhance without upscaling. Usually Enhance and Upscale are applied together to get high quality and high resolution image. If the input image is less than 1 MP (1024x1024 pixels) it is better to upscale it unless you need specific image resolution.

Enable the Decompress/Remove artefacts toggle to sharpen your image and remove compression artifacts

Undo the operation with a single click if the applied improvement is not satisfactory
