I have a gif image of about 35x35 pixels . I need to increase this image to 600x600 resolutions with print quality.

How do i do this in Photoshop to increase the image resolution to get a print quality.

Help needed!

It sounds like you would be better off using Adobe Illustrator and recreating the image there as that will give you a vector image. Then you can stretch in proportion to be as large as you want without destroying any quality.

I completely agree, you've got to recreate the image in almost all cases. There's no way to avoid the jaggies (or the fuzzies) otherwise and there goes your print quality.

The only time you can go up in resolution easily (and this is a BIG jump you're talking about) is with a very basic gif that has only horizontal and verticl lines.
