Bear...

Always....Always...Always...make a copy and work with the copy...NOT the original! Been there...done that!:D :D

Small pics generally don't "blow up" well. Lots of technical reasons and parameters.

Paul,

Looks good!

Bear, when you shrink it down you actually lose every second piece of data (or whatever proportion you picked) then when you blow it back up there's no data there. Even if you use a fancy program that manufactures the missing data by averaging what's around the hole, it's still going to lose something. If your program just stretches the data to cover, it'll be worse.

Bear another option is to get a image resizer. The one I use is from Microsoft. Do a search for PowerToys from Microsoft. Then look for image resizer from their site. When you resize using this program it makes a copy in the size you want and saves the orginal image for you automatically.:eek:

the red X means your computer isn't getting the picture.......likely because the picture is stored somewhere else and is only there via HTML commands.............. I tried to save sixchows avatar and that worked, so i tried to save the bostitch nailer off simple-john's post about nailers. Worked fine.

What picture were you trying to save? And when you say it comes up as a red x, where is it coming up as a red x? What did you do before it came up as a red x?

bear,

Are you just clicking on the attachment text and trying to save it without clicking and opening it up first? Try opening up the attachment on the webpage first and make sure the webpage and pic load up all the way before you save the pic.

Here's a link to the page where the pic is: bear's cat

I like that pic. Could make a good desktop pic.
