Need help With a picture please.....

trinitytxDecember 7, 2005

In my yearly attempt to get my brother and sister speaking again, I want to send this pic to my brother for Christmas. it is the only adult photo I have of my sister. what i hope to do is

take the gentleman out of the photo, and just have my sister in the picture so i can put it in a pretty frame.

Thanks for your time!

Trin,
You can make a big picture small but you can't make a small picture big and keep the same quality.

I imagined you scanned that picture?
If you would have scanned it much larger, then it could be made into a big enough one to be put in a frame.

Trina,
I depends on what kind of a scanner you use and the size of your photo to begin with.
I use an Epson 1200U.
If your photo is like a 3½x4½, scanning at Res 150 makes a 688x514 pixel size which I always use to work with. Scanning at Res 100, you get a 466x343 pixel picture.
I am posting two graphics to try and explain what to do.
I hope they are self explanitory?
The main thing is to select your photo before you scan so you do not get the whole area around it which makes for too big a scan and is wasted space.

THE BIGGER THE BETTER!
Try scanning at 200 and see how it comes.

Urlee, do my eyes deceive me? By chance, is that a Honda 50 Cub? A friend had a red one way back when.

I assume that's your grocery-grabber when the weather cooperates? :)

Well well well,
Look who popped in?
Sweetheart, that is a 1980 C70 Honda Express I would like to sell if I can get the lead out to put an ad in the paper!
I have a "trunk" on the back of the seat now.
It has an electric start.
