I am using Lightroom 2 and need some help on making some of my photos into a higher res and I have no idea how to. Anyone with any help would be really helpful, I posted a photo below that I want into a higher res.
Lightroom does not provide an easy solution for resizing images. You can try:
1. Right-click on the photo and select Export
2. In File Settings: TIFF, uncompressed, Adobe RGB (1998), 16 bit
3. Resize to fit: Dimensions (enter the new dimensions), make sure Don't Enlarge is not clicked, Resolution 300 pixesls per inch
I doubt you'll get a very good result, but it's worth a try.

thank you is there any way i could make a high res photo on my camera,I use a nikon d 90
The D90 creates an image file that is 4288 x 2848 pixels if you use the "Large" size JPEG image files (or raw capture). This file size will allow a print of about 14.3" by 9.5" at the high-quality 'standard' of 300 pixels per inch. If you need a larger resolution file than 4288 x 2848 pixels, it cannot be created in the camera. You will need to either learn how to do it with Lightroom or some other image editing program.
What image size do you need? What purpose do you have for the higher resolution image?

A company called On One Software have produced a plug-in called Genuine Fractals for Photoshop that can increase the resolution of photographs up to 700% without losing the print quality. I have no idea how much it costs. But, if you have Photoshop, this is one way of doing what you want.
You can never increase the resolution of a digital file, never.
Once it is captured the resolution is set, there are however things that can be done to minimize the effects of the low resolution when you are printing at larger sizes and Genuine Fractals is just one of them.
I haven't tried Genuine Fractals yet. Here is where I got my information about it:
Read the page, or just scroll down to the heading "Increasing Resolution".
He's telling how to get your photos up to 48 MB, the size he says is required for selling stock photos to agencies. Most cameras don't output 48 MB pics.
Since this guy is in the business, I figured he knew what he was talking about. You never know when you might take a pic that's worth selling, so the camera can help pay for itself. Thanks for the info............
hmmm,thanks guys,I get useful information.

And we use Genuine Fractals where I work and the sign shop next door uses it to help enlarge DSLR images to be used on billboards, vehicle wraps for trucks and buses and even signs that cover the entire sides of buildings. Don't confuse increasing file size with increasing resolution they are two entirely different aspects of a digital image and they are not necessarily connected, simply because you increase the file size does not mean you are increasing the resolution here is an example.
Let's make this easy and say our camera takes a 100 x 100 pixel image. If we increase the file in size to say 1,000 x 1,000 pixels we have not increased the original resolution, in fact we have actually made the resolution worse because what used to take 100 pixels of space now has to fill 1,000 pixels of space. So even thought our file is basically 10 times the original size in MB we have actually made our resolution worse.
When we increase the file size we add blank space that has to be filled with something, some programs fill in these newly created spaces by simply duplicating pixels. Programs like Genuine Fractals fill these newly created spaces by looking at the pixels on either side of this space and interpolating what might have been there. While this does not increase the resolution of the images it does eliminate most of if not all of the jaggie edges making the resulting image look better.
Now to that 48mb size thing don't equate that to the resolution of the file, there are many reasons why in the publishing industry we require 48mb or larger files and resolution is just one of them.
