Re: Slugger pic

You're welcome, Kitty.  Well 1600 x 1200 pixels will give you an
8x10.  The 72 pixels per inch probably won't  produce a really sharp
image in print format.  You can convert the .jpg to .tif but it won't
produce any added data in the file - it decompresses it, but doesn't
add anything, if that makes any sense....the number of pixels per
inch is what you've got to work with.  I find with my digi camera
images that I can't improve them dramatically because they were
originally compressed files at that low resolution and there simply
isn't enough data there to work with.   Part of that is the ability
of my older camera in the first place.  Newer cameras shoot at higher
megapixels to start with.

I take it you don't have a color printer to print out your own pix? 
You might want to talk to the photo lab and see what they think about
the resolution of the original image re: the quality of final output.
