    You could always crop the image into a new wall, but then you might not have the same looking wallpaper that you wanted.

    you cant actually resize any image without losing quality as its a function of pixels, but you can usually resize down and it wont look too pixelated or anything like that, just mess with the resize settings and go from there, or take the part of the image you like and make your own

    I don't know of any off the top of my head, I used to know a guy that did allot of image restoration and enhancement for the military/government. It basicaly takes each pixel and breaks it down analizes the colors in that pixel and then duplicaes it, applys a rendering alglorithm^sp, I just remember asking about the program and he said it costs like $20,000.

    might try a search for advanced image enhancement/modification enlargement software.
