Latest post of the previous page:

Thanks as always Gail,

Really good information that I shall keep. A bit of a shame that Carl had such an unfortunate surname. Still you can't have everything I suppose.

Robert, this is another small photo which seems low on colours so is pixelated. Have you scanned it in, if not does it look like the original?

Bit small for the site really.

The picture is small for a bitmap. I wonder if it has been scanned from a thumbnail?

If it is scanned he needs to do it at least 300dpi, more if possible. If it is scanned with a high resolution it may be possible to re-size it bigger without it becoming pixelated.

Sometimes selecting 2 colours black/grey can sharpen up a poor picture.

5 MB what dimensions are that photo? I will make it smaller later, and maybe make it straight :)


Done

This is a photo of the Empress Cinema in Chapel circa 1940 I think judging by the films on offer.
