Hello there!

Late last year I ran into a problem of not being able to make images bigger for acting profiles. A lovely chap called SpywareDr just did it for me inside the forum. Sadly I can't seem to message him directly and not pester the community once more for effectively the same problem! I understand it can be done through Mircosoft Paint quite easily.. but what about a Google Chromebook? If I learn how I won't ever need help again!


"Photo Too Small.
Sorry - that image is too small for publication. Images submitted to Spotlight must be at least 500 pixels wide by 500 pixels high - on a digital camera, that's about 2 megapixels."

The uploaded images are the original and the zoomed distance I need for my profiles, when I attempt to upload the 'closeheadshot.jpg' it is too small. I know this will be an easy fix for you guys, I was best at drama, music, and art in school, not computers and math!

Here's 500x500 pixels @125kb

Making a picture bigger does not increase the Clarity/Resolution.
For example ...
Making a pic 2 times bigger only means it will look the same (resolution) when viewed twice as far away.

@Noyb..no,it does not make it any clearer by enlarging it,in fact,it becomes more pixelated.however,if you have noticed,my image is still as clear as the original.In fact it is clearer then the one you posted.I only changed the first value (width) to keep the original without cropping as you did.you will only notice pixelation if you enlarge the image by half or more.
He said "At Least" of 500x500. Which means there is no "maximum" heigth.That's why i left the heigth value the same to keep his original image.no cropping needed and still a perfectly clear image.If i were to double the pixels,then i would have more then likely used photoshop.

I didn't say its clearer ... (or mean to)
Only in Hollywood (NCIS) can they enlarge a license plate 20 miles away .... and read it :D

I did use Photoshop ... If I didn't have Photoshop, I would have used Irfanview.
Photoshop or Irfanview will (best guess) and add pixels if it needs to

Editing a jpg >> Saving it >> and Editing it again ... Turns it into a re-compression "Rumor"
If possible ... Always save and edit the original.

:D I know ... You "best guessed" one way ... I went the other way :D
