Hi, Firstly I would like to know where all my past postings have gone? The problem I have is that when I download photos from my camera onto my PC, is it possible to print just a certain area of the photo only and leave the rest out, or blow up a certain area which I know one can do but is it possible to print just the blown up area on my photo paper, Thanks,Brian
As stated you need a photo editor And those free ones are good starter, If you have a scanner then, the free 'get you started' software that came with it such as Photoshop Element will do it. In general terms here is what you do. In the program open the picture In the tool bar you will see the 'Crop' tool click on it and a frame will apear on the image. grab a corner and drag it out to cover part of the image by clicking in the centre of the highlighted area and dragging you will be able to position the frame to the exact portion of the image. By grabbing a corner and pushing and pulling the area can be increased or decreased as approriate When satisfied double click the centre and the cropped portion will be on screen. This next bit is very important. Go to file and click on SAVE AS you will then give the new image a name that is different from the original- then click save- This name can be anything you like I personally retain the original number and add a letter - 123456a.jpg for example This will retain the original image for further editing if you wind up not liking what you have done to 'a'
