I used to be able to click on a page icon at the top of the screen to enlarge pictures , can no longer do so .
Any advice ?

That is not a function offered by the site/forums...

Google Chrome , previously standard Google , but while still on it at some stage the option simply dissappeared .

I understand Ndloti.
In the old forum setup if you clicked on the image it enlarged
But i suspect that it also has to do with what size used for submitting
them on the forum?

I actually could click on an "page" icon alongside "check" , "autofill" , "sign in" on the top of the screen , its now absent , could it be due to installation of a new microsoft 2007 windows package ?
If so , is it not strange that the older windows package had the page icon ?

Nope Bert, that's a feature of Chrome in this case.
Well, was it seems.

What always works is download the photo to a folder on your machine, and use Irfanview (or such) to zoom on the photo.

The "page" icon alongside "check" , "autofill" , "sign in" are all functions of the browser, or a toolbar.

The ctrl ++ works very well and can of course become ctrl++++ for more magnification (and then ctrl--- to reduce again).

Or in Windows XP you can also use the magnifier. Go Start> all programs> accessories> accessibility> magnifier. It takes some getting used to but works very well and is also adjustable re magnification.

Ctrl 0 returns it to normal size. :wink:

Can someone tell me why this all works on my laptop but not on my PC? :doh:

Sprocky, it depends on the version of the software. Here at work I've got IE6 - doesn't work. At home I've got IE8 - works like a charm. Both I've got Windows XP.

sprocky maybe you should try firefox, there is a free add-on to the browser that allows you to zoom into the photo and also click on it to display against a single colour background. works great for me

Morning all, Sprocky you can download the free version of Picasa (http://www.picasa.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and it will manage all your previews and zooming. You have to register and they also give you free storage space (1 Gb).
