photos not in full resolution

Recommended Posts

I lost my photos on old computer but had them stored in ipod which I transferred back to new comp. When I try to print a pic. they are blurry. The resolution is very small, only 176 by 132. I was told by Windows paint to try software that is photo editing. Does anyone know if i purchase this type of software if the resolution can ever be changed? Taryn

I gather when you transferred your images to your iPod you resized them? If so, I doubt you could increase the size of a 176x132 image as complex as a photograph using photo-editing software.

What was the software you were considering buying? If you mean PDN, it is free. If not, I am afraid this forum only provides support for Paint.NET, so you may wish to try this board instead.

The sad truth is that, once shrunk, images cannot by any means be returned to their original size. The information is lost and cannot be retrieved by any means. You can make the image the same size, but the resolution will remain just as grainy and blurry as they already are. That is to say, they will never look any different when printed out.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost them. I hope they were replaceable.
