    One day you find a neat anime picture. Maybe you want to use it as a sick background, or maybe you want it as a profile picture, but oh no; it's low res! And reverse image search doesn't come up with a high res image! You think to yourself, whatever will I do!

    1. Go to http://waifu2x.udp.jp/
    2. Upload your picture. Make sure "Artwork" is ticked instead of
    3. Set Noise Reduction to Highest
    4. Resize either by 1.6x, or 2x
    5. Convert

    and voila, crisper image! I like how it keeps the anime art style as well. Obviously not 100% perfect all the time, but the image usually comes out much better. Might be a good idea to experiment a bit to see what looks best.

    Examples:

    remember to click to zoom in

    after, upscaled 1.6x

    after, upscaled 2x

    can definitely see the improvement in both pictures
