Making Images Bigger

If an image of sufficient size cannot be found try upscaling an existing image with Real-ESRGAN or waifu2x.


  • For best results with Real-ESRGAN use the realesrgan-x4plus-anime model for anime and realesrgan-x4plus for photos.
  • For best results with waifu2x enable TTA and use the upconv_7_anime model for anime and upconv_7_photo for photos.
  • Both can also be used to remove blur.

Making Images Square

If a square image cannot be found try making the closest available image square.

Ways to approach:

  • Resize the canvas smaller.
  • Crop inside the image bounds.
  • Resize the canvas bigger, select a region and fill with content-aware mode.
  • Crop outside the image bounds with content-aware mode.


If the image becomes too small after cropping or canvas reductions try upscaling it first.
