The background image can be magnified more when editing with JOSM than in Potlach2. They are same images just a limit to mag in P2, so if you are at present using P2 one solution would be to try JOSM. see my answer to this

sorry I've looked at the area and the images are too poor to be magnified unlike the french example

The satelite imagery is used with permission from Bing. You should contact them and add a request for better imagery in your area.

You could also get a gps and go out and survey the area. That way you get more accurate data then you can get from areal photos.

Another hint: If you are using Potlatch (the online editor), it will not show any background if you zoom in too far. If you use JOSM, the background images will be scaled instead. This may help a bit if there is no high-res imagery.
