Well, Kitty, the image you have up on the web is 480x360 pixels and
would print out at 6.668 x 5".  It is also 72 pixel resolution, which
is less than I usually use for jpg files - 96 is what I use for
monitor viewing.  72 is the resolution for .gif files.  For some
reason, my digital camera (which is older) saves at 72 pixels at
normal high setting...annoying.  There's another higher setting, but
the file size produced is more than my system can handle.

 For printing, you need minimum 150 pixels and 250 or 300 will give
you a better image - print actually doesn't do much beyond 300
pixels.  However, if your camera saves jpgs at 72 pixels as a .jpg
file, you are out of luck because there's just not enough data saved
to increase the pixel level and not get a fuzzy image.

Perhaps you have the original image at a higher resolution or larger
size?  I snatched your web image and stuck it in Photoshop to see
what size it would print at and the resolution and it said it was 
42kb file size, so if your original is 387kb, it must be larger or at
a higher rez....

You are actually better off saving in .tif format if your camera
permits and you want to print out something - if you can handle the
file size - because .tif doesn't compress like .jpg and compression
loses data.

Slides are much higher rez.  When I scan a slide, it's at 2400
pixels, giving me a 15megabyte or more file size.  I have to reduce
those images immediately or my whole system gets indigestion.

Aren't we, tho'?  I mean, our cat's name is Teeny Kitty; previous
cat's name was Cat-cat...how creative can you get?
