Parabraves, What Do You Mean By Size?

When a picture is saved in a certain dpi (dots per inch), you basically get what you saved...The picture "quality" can't really be improved much..On the other hand, if you mean that the "viewed picture" on the screen is too small, then you should be able to view it larger in a number of different viewers. On Windows XP, the default "Windows Picture and FAX Viewer" allows the picture to be "zoomed". In addition, Irfanview, a nice free viewer at the link below allows you to zoom on pictures or save them as a different file size.

Hope this helps.

I've had IrvanView

I enjoyed the site and made slideshows, but I had the same problem with that. What I want to do is send what I made as a gift, but it is a little small. Problem is I don't think they have Irfan and I know they don't have photoshop, so I have to send it in JPEG form or it cannot be viewed.

Right now I have it at 490 x 544, which is good but that is only in full screen mode. When I transfer the file will it come out exactly how I send it, meaning full screen? If so, I don't need to enlarge the picture.

Whatever You Send They Will Get...

A .jpg file is perfect for sending..The default viewer for .jpg files on older computers is frequently Internet Explorer. A 490 X 544 image is not quite full screen depending on the viewer they are using on that end and they're screen resolution. If your dimensions are right, then it will display taller than long..If the monitor's screen resolution is 800 X 600, then you know what size the picture needs to be to be full screen. In your case, the height will be about full screen, but not the width. It's close enough that I wouldn't worry about it. Let the end user worry about making the picture.

Hope this helps.

Yes, that did help

So if I send it in full screen mode they receive it that way? Excellent. It looks fine in that format. Since it's a gift I don't want the recipient to have to do anything, except enjoy. That's definitely a load off my mind, knowing I don't need to go back and redo the whole thing to make it bigger. Thanks! Happy
