The majority of images on the web are low resolution and compressed, any enlargements will become pixelated (blocky), however a certain amount of enlargement is possible if you increase the size in small stages.

This does raise the question, Do you have permission to use these images? most images/photos you see will be copyright

I should have added, that to ensure no distortion takes placemake sure you select "Constrain Proportions"

Thank you for your speedy reply...will make a note of your last reply.
Have also downloaded Photobucket on advice from a friend who says its alot easier to use and will let you know on the outcome should I suceed :).
As for having permission to use these pictures...well, how can one tell if permission is granted, I would say if you dont want people to take advantage of them....dont publish on the web, not sounding like a meany but what can I do when one google for any type of Pictures?
