Could someone helps me making an image file bigger?

    Hi,

    Sorry to bug you all.

    I need to make my current image of (200×200) to be 1000×1000. However, the graphics tool I have is Paint (that comes with Windows), not good to resize it and retain its quality. So, I wonder if any soul could be kind enough to download it,

    and resize it to 1000×1000 for me.

    Many thanks.

    Zooming in on small images and retaining (or even improving) quality only happens on TV, especially in cop shows.

    A standard resize results in this: http://www.senff.com/kn-boxshot-1000.jpg

    So, Senff, only the original creator can resize it to retain its quality? Yours looks all right. Thanks.

    Call CSI in on the case…

    You must have a bad screen, that is horrendously bad quality.

    Agreed. Very poor quality.

    You can try this site and download a free trial. I had pretty good results using it. http://www.ononesoftware.com/products/perfect-resize/

    Janet, you’re my girl!
    All right, in all earnestness, any string attached to their free trial? for instance, watermark for the resized image? Thanks.

    All right, all,

    Since we are at it, please take a look at this guy, see if you like it better compared to

    Neither. You need to learn some design fundamentals first before trying to apply those to an actual design.

    It’s not exactly my design. Could you show one or two that you consider meet your standard?

    # July 17, 2013 at 11:43 pm

    Unless they’re in vector format, it would require some work. I doubt anyone will do that for you unless you commissioned them.

    >Could you show one or two that you consider meet your standard?

    It’s not about “my” standard. It’s basic level design fundamentals, the elements that you need for basing any design around, web, print, anything:
    - white space
    - visual hierarchy
    - colour schemes
    - typography
    - alignment & grids

    Any more from anyone?

    The designs you linked to don’t show any incorporation of these elements at all. And taking a step back from designing it, if you can’t recognise that then you need to start at the basics, so I’d recommend a design fundamentals course or similar in all seriousness, if you’re interested in doing design yourself.

    Failing that buy a theme or pay someone to design one for you.
