So I have asked this on the official GIMP and Linux Mint forums with no luck so I thought I'd try here. Basically I want to take a picture of a game running in an emulator at 1x resolution, so super tiny, and scale it up and take elements out of it to use as themes for my desktop and on twitch. The problem is no matter what program I import it into when I scale it up and then export it as either a bmp, png, or jpeg it gets all fuzzy. Basically I want it to scale up and be have the pixels as sharp as they were originally so I can cut stuff out and re-use elements. I use Linux but if you're a Windows or Mac user if you describe the process I can probably figure it out with the equivalent programs on Linux. This reminds me of high school and jr. high, I'd do this stuff but I think the thing was is the resolution of the PCs at the time were pretty much the same as what the 8 and 16 bit consoles were at the time so no scaling needed.
