Hey there! I've just started to learn and download clipart. The problem is that when I send my sister one of them from my files she says they are too small and that when she zooms in on them they are too grainy. I'm pretty sure that all this is due to my ignorance. They are small on my files too. Any help appreciated. Thanks and have a good day. Bastet:)

you just want to improve their quality?

well if you have a high-powered graphics editor like PhotoShop or Paint Shop Pro then you could enlarge them and they'd come out a little pixelated, but that's how clip art is these days. you could Soften or Blur them then to make them look nicer. you could also try JPEG Artifact Removal to try and eradicate some of the grain.

most clip art is pretty simple and pretty small.....I guess originally used as cut and paste objects in newspaper advertising..( real cutting...real pasting...! ) It carried over to word processing and desktop publishing, and now HTML pages. For the most part I would say they would be between 5k and 100 k in file size and maybe around 100pixels by 100 pixels ( just an example....no rule here...) The attached image is less than 4k and about 128x128 pixels ( about 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches)....can't really zoom in on it very much before distortion explodes it.
