Hi! It's quite simple... I have a pixel art image. It's the Zelda map. I found it here: I would lik eto make it bigger and print it out.  When I say bigger, I mean 1m high. The image is now 50cm high. When I zoom in on photoqhop, It doesn't get blurry because it's pixel art.  But if I change the image size, it become blury.

Is there a way to make this kind of image bigger? I undersatnd that it would be complecated with a normal photo, but this one, because it's "pixel art", I some how image it would be easyier. Is there a way to change the pixel size? (what size is a pizel anyway??)

I hope someone can help me figure out a way...

 

Thanks in advance!!
