Can I upscale images with text on them?

Improve the quality of images with text

Let's Enhance algorithms allow you to upscale images that have any sort of inscriptions/text applied.
To process such files, you can use two options:

1. Smart resize

To use that feature, head to:

Upscale type
Smart resize

From here, you can adjust all the additional features:

Size (Auto, Custom: 1x, 2x, 4x, 6x)

Light AI - to balance out colours and fix lightning in your images

Tone enhance - for higher dynamic range (contrast, brightness, exposure)

Color enhance - to increase saturation and slight brightness adjustment

🚨 Dependance - when to apply Light AI, Tone Enhance and Color Enhance:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» To prevent artificial lighting of your processed images after selecting Light AI, it is not recommended to apply Tone and Color enhancers
πŸ‘‰πŸ» For Tone Enhance or Color Enhance, intensity levels of 15-30 will be good starting points, providing you hadn't previously applied Light AI. However, there's always a space to adjust their intensity further up to when the demanded level/satisfying outcome is achieved. Experiment!

2. E-commerce preset

To have your image upscaled automatically with our ready-made settings, please head to:


For images with text, we recommend to use the Upscale function only from the presets available
