    You can upscale images without loosing quality by turning off interpolation (and it helps to scale by a factor of 2). However this will just make the pixels larger. It depends what you want to achieve. This approach is fine for pixel art. On GameBanana we upscale our 16x16 icons to 32x32 using this method.

    As already mentioned though it is impossible to upscale a photo losslessly as you are asking the program to invent new pixels. Maybe you can with some kind of newer AI based logic that can refer to similar images that are bigger and determine what pixels to place...

    It's impossible to upscale something so low resolution and expect a good result.
