When creating an image with "Blue Glass", I add a "new layer" with Stroke and Outer Glow Element to give an effect I want.

Result 1: The image created in 500 px and 500 px (width and height), I like the effect how was shown, but when I enlarge them for printing, a pixelation happens.

Result 2: I went back to change the size of documents to make it in "inches x inches", and apply blue glass and stroke and outer glow like above.... it is not the same effect I see in "Result 1" anymore

Is there anyway I can have Outer Glow Elements to go "inches" or is there anyway I can retain the result 1 withiout the pixalation?

I have Photoshop CS 3 version 10.

Please Help!!

When upsampling the layered file was »Scale Styles« checked?

Can you please tell me a little more? I research on Scale Styles and play around, but cannot see anything different. In the image you can see my effect layer is a separate layer, and should I enlarge the whole image to the desire inches x inches, and then click that effect then "scale style"? I try that but it look very different.

Have you tried changing the resolution instead of the dimensions?

With a newer designed, I had a different resolution.

300 ppi set for 2.4 x 3.6 inch.

After layering and made special effects, all the layers are merged,. save, and then enlarged to 24 x 36 inches. After it runs a while time, then I will have to save them in PDF. That takes more longer. :) Any shortcut you may suggest?
