This is impossible. The most basic way to 'zoom' in on a picture is to display it on a huge screen, like a TV. That will already zoom the picture several times larger, and you cannot stop that.

You need to get familiar with special-purpose software, and there are countless ways to try different parameter settings at the PC. Tiniest erros add up and must be ...
