I thought I was good enough at computer stuff to do this but I have failed. I attached an image. I'm wanting to resize it so I can print and transfer to a t shirt. Never see any Case clothing. Figure I could do some myself. Anyone good at this stuff that can help? I have a Mac Mini running Snow Leopard and can make it bigger but haven't figured out how to sharpen it up. When I printed it, the edges were boxy (could see the pixels). Is there something that can fix this or is it a lost cause? Can anyone else take a shot at this?

Thanks for any help!

What you experienced when you enlarged it is normal and impossible to get away from unless the image is redone in another format and with more pixels so it doesn't become pixelated when resized.

 

Some tshirt places have people that can digitize whatever image you might want. Might be worth having them redo the image to the correct size?

I can try to find a few minutes to play with it tonight, but you may be better off to start from scratch.

You can make pretty big logos with some graphic programs. Gimp is free (but a little hard to use), even Open Office has a drawing program... Even Paint.

I appreciate the help. I'm gonna do some more research tonight. I'm using a Mac running Snow Leopard. I tried using Iphoto and Preview but to no success. May have to look up some other programs to see.

I may check into a couple places while I'm out and about. Thanks again.

One way to enlarge a small pic is, to print it out and scan it in again tiff formated.

Our granddaughter has Gimp installed on her Macbook and does all kinds of stuff with it.  Gimp is the open source version of  Photoshop .

I've heard of Gimp but never fooled with it..   Always use 2 or 3 different programs to manipulate the images..

It's always possible but you will need to:

 

a)  In some cases change the file type

b)  Use Paint in Windows to resize the picture and Crop the unneeded part..  It's also handy for covering up any unwanted material.
c)  A Photograph editing program is useful to sharpen/straighten the image.
d)  Then post the image in the Caption This!!  of the day!!

These all look great. I still haven't had a chance to sit down and work on the screen print. You all did a great job helping me. I'm gonna work with them and see what I can come up with. Thanks again.
