Picture Vocabulary

If your picture becomes blurry or pixelated you need to start with a bigger picture before printing.

Working With Pictures

Some of us are finding that our pictures need resizing (smaller or bigger). Here is a good video about using Microsoft Word to change picture sizes, shapes, colors, and brightness. If you want to change the size of a picture, it is best to search and copy only the largest size picture you can find first. If you try to stretch a small picture to make it bigger you will make the picture pixelated. That means the picture becomes blurry or unclear.
