The auto-correct function in picture manager is at the top centre of the window as you look at it. It may be that the version you have doesn't have this feature - not having a vista machine in front of me makes it difficult lols.

The only other way that I can think you can make them sharper is to increase the resolution of your desktop to maximum and try and snip again, That way you will get the maximum resolution that your system can manage,




Edit: Paint does not have any kind of image improver/enhancer..

Again built in windows M$ windows picture manager has an Auto-correct function which can sharpen up images to an extent. Try it and let me know how you go on.... If not i'm pretty sure there is something free that you can download that will do the job.

I'm not sure about vista but if its there it will be under Start>All Programs>Accessories...

If not you can screenshot it by pressing Control and hitting the Print Screen button then opening paint and pasting the screenshot, cutting what you need with paint then pasting into word. A bit more long winded but it works....

Good luck....

Hi area 51

Can you not display the pdf on your desktop then use the snipping tool (built into windows) to cut the part you need then save as a png and paste it into word where you can resize it and print to the size you like ?

If that sounds a bit of a long way or you dont understand I can make it clearer in a PM if need be.....

Hi Laurie and welcome.

You need to create an album first and upload any pictures to that. You can then add pictures from that to your posts.

+1 for flight1 - it runs in the background Erfolg and you shouldn't need to run it manually. It should be set for autostart in services and for all intense and purposes is normally naked to the human eye. All updates are invisible too.
