This worked for me ... I got this from going through the Help/Online Help from within the program.
Complete the following steps: With a multi-page project open on the program workspace, click File in the menu bar and choose Print Preview. In the Print Preview window that appears, click the Zoom In button and click Close to return to the project. The Page Turner button will now display.
You can use the "blend" or "smear" feature on either GIMP (free) or PhotoShop by Adobe. This basically has the same effect as rubbing your thumb over words on a freshly written page, smearing the adjacent colors to fill in the blank or degraded spots. It's a nice feature to help fill in "blank" spots in images, especially after editing them for concept drawings and such, or enlarging images which are low-resolution.
Be careful with the tool, you can quickly go overboard.
To resize an image with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 you first need to
open the image. After opening the image you will select
Image---> Resize---> Image Size. If you select canvas size the image itself
will not change.
At the Image Size menu, make sure that the "resample" check box at the
bottom of the menu is selected. Then enter the desired resolution and
width/height. For printing an image, a resolution of 300 pixels/inch or
more is desirable. When images are intended for computer or web
display, 72 pixels/inch (sometimes referred to as dpi) is sufficient.
You can set the image size in pixels (at the top of the menu) or in
inches (at the lower part of the menu). Once the desired sizes are
entered you only need to press "ok" for the change to be made.
Photoshop Elements also offers another method of resizing an image. You
can use the "crop" function to resize your image quickly. The crop tool
looks like a small square with overlapping edges and can also be
accessed through the Image menu bar at the top of your screen.
Once the crop tool options bar opens, select "custom" and then enter
the desired height/width and resolution. To crop to specific pixels you
must enter the letters "px" after the size number in the width/height
boxes. If only one dimension is important you can enter information in
only one box and let the other dimension be determined purely by where
you place the crop line.
After entering your preferences you will click and drag the crop tool
across the image to select the part of the image you wish to keep.
I don't think you can in PageMaker. The blurring occurs because of the nature of the images you're probably using. They are made up of a set of small blocks of colours (pixels). If you increase the size of the image, the blocks just get bigger and it turns blurry.
Your two options: * Sharpen the image - you can use free software like Picasa. This can be used to fix blurry images, but isn't ideal. * Resample the image - this is the better solution, more pixels are added as the image size is increased. You need proper image software like photoshop or paint shop pro to do this.
You cannot increase the resolution of a file. Even an image at 300 dpi has limits. You should check to see what the original actual pixel size of the image. This is the maximum size you can transform without losing resolution. Hope this helps!
What I saw first off is that although the resolution indicates 96 DPI, the file size itself between the 2 examples are drastically different. You are putting raster images into MS Word for publication work, and that is a NO NO. Word was not created for any kind of high resolution printing. It's a glorified text editor that people seem to think is an option for printing. YOU WILL NEVER GET 300 or 600 DPI images out of Word. Ever.
To create your project for printing, you need to use software more suited for the task. InDesign and Quark are examples, but they are very expensive. In my opinion, Publisher would be better for this kind of project and I hate myself for saying that.
Talk to your Printer, find out his specifications for Applications and Linescreen for Printing. The minimum requirement is 280 DPI, but if the image is placed at 100%, 600 DPI is overkill.
Oh, and try to never scan a scan... you are looking for trouble... a little thing called a Moiré pattern comes into play, and it will make you images print NASTY!
I could go on about your post all day long, but if there is anything else I didn't explain, please post again.
JPEGs were only really intended for monitor display, although they do print up on a home inkjet very well. They should not really be used for any kind of long term storage other than as original image files if that is how they were shot, as every time you save them they degrade due to the compression process used. If you are working in photoshop I would leave them in psd format, especially if you have any layers. Your edited files will store well long term as either psd or tiff files. Tiff supports layers but again unless you need to print them commercially psd will suffice.
When you zoom in most any photo editing program, all you do is change the appearance of the picture on your screen; nothing happens to the file, merely the size of the image you are viewing. To change the size for the file, here are detailed instructions:
Step 1. Select the command Resize - Image Size from the menu Image of Adobe Photoshop Elements.
Step 2. Activate the check-box Constrain Proportions to keep the image proportions.
Step 3. Activate the check-box Resample Image, if you want to keep the image resolution.
Step 4. Select the interpolation method: Nearest Neighbour, Bilinear or Bicubic. We recommend the Bicubic method of interpolation.
Step 5. In the group Document Size select units and enter new values in the fields Width and Height. If the check-box Resample Image is not activated, the resolution will change.
