hello, you probably get this all the time, but some pictures i download from the net are small, then when i want to blow them up to a viewable size, they are way too blurry. if i wan to print them out, will they still be blurry, and if so, are there any really good programs that would create a sharper, more focused picture.

Most photos on the Internet are optimized to be as small a number as possible of bytes of information and still look acceptable on your monitor.

The reason is to minimize download times for web pages. So most pictures from the web are not suitable for enlarging or printing.

You can right click a picture and click on properties to see how many KB the picture is before you even download it. By experimenting you can up with a number you feel will enlarge enough for your purposes and make acceptable prints.

I include many pictures from the web in greeting cards I create. As long as you keep them small they can be fine for that purpose.
