Open your Image in PS.

Under Image | Image Size there is an option to change the DPI.

Sorry - my bad. Look at resolution (pixels/per inch) - it's the same thing as DPI basically. Web image are typically 72 pixels/in, print is 300. I'm not sure how much it's going to help you. Just experiment with different numbers and see what you get. Typically 72, 300, 600 are the norm. Remember the higher the DPI, your image size will increase as well.

There's a program called Genuine Fractals Pro that will interpolate images up to huge sizes with minimal loss of quality, but it will NOT add detail that wasn't already there in the image.

There are some things you can do to images to improve their quality, this is called post-processing.

I would suggest hitting Google, because there's really no one-click method of improving an image. There are many techniques, and exactly which you use is unique to each image you're trying to process.

When adjusting resolution in Photoshop, if you want more pixels added make sure 'resample' is ticked.
