There are several existing mathematical algorithms for colour image upscaling like Nearest Neighbour, Bicubic and Bilinear. This paper firstly investigates the performances of these three and it has been found that Bicubic performs the best in terms of structural similarity and execution time. A Bicubic with backpropagation based ANN method has been proposed to improve the results. Bicubic with ANN shows 6.5% higher SSIM, 6.9% higher PSNR, 8.7% higher SNR and 30.23% lower MSE values than pure
