    This is asking a lot--I'm just wondering if anyone can make this picture EXTREMELY LARGE (desktop size?) and make it clear? I'm HORRIBLE at this kind of thing--I have no clue how to do it or if it's even possible. It's a very small picture to begin with, and when I try to do it in Paint or Irfanview, it gets VERY pixellated and I don't know how to do it otherwise.

    It'll either get pixellated or blurry, the source is too small.

    I used the resample function in Irfanview for this.
    Resized to 600x600 (size limit).

    To get a large, clean version, you'd have to recreate it using Photoshop's tools. You could blow up the small version to use as a template, which would help get the proportions right.

    Thats what I was afraid of. I'm terrible at that stuff. Oh well. Life goes on :)
  5. What pixel dimensions do you want it? 1024x768?

  6. Here's a quickie 1024x768 version. Too big to upload here - go here

  9. Glad you like it! It helped me successfully avoid doing my real (boring) work, so everyone wins. Everyone but my client that is... but they can bite me.
