    So this isn't really tech but more creative, is there a way to de-pixelixe things when you scan them in?

    Like old comics or coloring book art?

    Is there a filter in photoshop aside from slightly blurring the image?

    thanks

    Depixelize but lo res? what?

    you'd have to scan the source in at 300 dpi and work down from there.

    Sharpen pixelates the heck out of a picture. There are no option to improve resolution in photoshop. You'd have to hit up a vector program, like illustrator, for that. If you can afford a few hundred dollars I can find someone for you haha.

    Why not just take a picture of it in parts, assemble and clean up in PS.
