I'm looking for a program to scale pic related and cut the black bar at the bottom without losing the quality.
What is a program you would suggest for this task?

You'll want to give Topaz Gigapixel a try.

Be warned, it definitely has it's limits. However, with some experimentation and exploration of its capabilities, as well as some adequate research into how image editing works, it can also have some fairly stunning successes.

Quality of the original is always incredibly important. Check your dpi (dots per inch) before you do anything. If it's 72 dpi or 96 dpi (standard web resolutions), any editing will have it's limits. Changing to 600 dpi before you do anything can make a dramatic difference in quality. Something as simple as IrfanView can change dpi, save as a new file, then go ahead with your editing & upscaling efforts. You can always go crazy with 800 or 1200 dpi, but there's diminishing returns with that (in some cases it can help). After all your editing is finished, you can always change the dpi back down to something like 300 or 200 dpi for high quality computer screen images.

Also check original quality of the lossless jpeg compression (if that's your source). If your starting with something at high loss/high compression (such as 6 or 7, also known as 60% or 70%) or lower (5 or 50% or under), evaluate how important that image is. It can take enormous effort to upscale images from that quality and still get sad to mediocre results. If your original image is 85% or maybe even 95% or 100%, you stand a much better chance.

Pic in OP is 98% jpeg, so that's nearly lossless and very good to start from. The dpi had not been set. Here's a quickie dirty edit in IrfanView where I set the dpi to 600, cropped off as much of the bottom as I could and still leave hints of the lighted windows, then rescaled it without keeping it proportional. 1920 width would have been too much to stretch it, but 1700 pixels wide is a minor stretch that's not noticeable, and set to 1080 height.

Saved as lossless .png format (always a good idea when possible).

Same image, same treatment, but less cropping and I kept the proportions locked to original aspect ratio (after cropping off the bottom watermark bar), set the height to 1080 and the width came out at 1581 (rather than the 1700 stretched in the previous edit).

To get to 1920 width, you're going to need to do some serious editing to extend the image on the sides. Use >>>/wg/catalog and find the IMAGE MODIFICATION THREAD / IMT here on /wg/ and make a request. They can do some interesting work that way, maybe even get you to 1920 width. If you're comfortable with colored bars on either side of the image, that's a lot easier than trying to recreate the original artwork.

Usually in a case like this, if I'm really invested in having an image as a pape, I'll set my desktop background color to something complimentary (black or dark blue in this case), then put the pape up as centered. Adjust the background color until it 'looks good' for you to frame the image.

Severe cropping option. Set the original image to 800 dpi, multiplied out the ratio for 16:9 (width x 0.5625) to get original width of 1536 pixels, but can only be 864 pixels height. Decided the starry sky was the important content, so lopped off everything below 864 pixels from the bottom. Then re-scaled to 1920x1080, now at 800 dpi rather than the more typical 600 dpi. I only did the higher dpi "because." It should make no real difference at this level of scaling, but it's a demo for comparison, and could be important if you wanted to attempt a 2560x1440 or a 4K pape.

The general point being, you could use Topaz Gigapixel or something similar for a project like this, but you can also get some very respectable results with a freebie utility like IrfanView. Your original image was pretty high quality (98% jpeg compression), and the amount of upscaling (to 1080) was fairly minor, so the results should be pretty solid for most any use other than the most demanding application. It's a matter of choosing which compromises are acceptable for you.

I did scale this 16:9 crop up to 2560x1440 (using 800 dpi) and it looked "OK." I could spot some image degradation because I was looking for it, but your source original could pass on a 2K monitor for most all casual enjoyment.

And, because autism, I had to attempt a 2560x1440. Set the dpi to 1200 to see if I could preserve some extra quality. I don't think it made a notable difference over 800 dpi, slightly different crop, I sacrificed a sliver from the night sky at top to include a bit of chimney at the bottom to imply the source of the smoke rising.

You might try this one on your computer and tell it to fit the image to screen. It might look a bit sharper than the previous edit when auto-resized by your OS. As mentioned earlier, saved as lossless .png to preserve maximum quality. This is good for art images, but not always the best option for photographs. Photos saved at 95% or 98% jpeg compression are usually 'good enough' for all practical purposes. Saving most photos as .png files greatly increases their size, and there are better options if you really want maximum quality for your photos. But art like this compresses to lossless files of 'reasonable' size for maximum quality.

4:3 classic wallpapers. Things from the 2000s, with resolutions like 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024.
No specific theme is required but it needs to be an image from the 2000s and it's better if it's not based on a brand (or if it is branded, it has to be from tech from the era like Windows XP, Nokia, Sony, Dell, etc...).

i love these types not depicting some giant battle or le epic boss or some shit its just comfy warcraft stills and i love that

Had to factory wipe my computer, ended up losing all my hundreds of saved papes because I'm a retard and never backed them up on a cloud drive. Would appreciate a little help in re-building my library of comfy papes, particularly ones with lower contrast levels, with minor amounts of film grain being a bonus.

2560x1440 and above preferred, but all is welcome. And yeah, I know, the attached picture is 1920x1080, but it's just still my favorite one.
Used to be really easy to find these kinds of papes on Google, but now it's a struggle. Shit sucks.
