Windows 7: Help please with this important Picture

Just a quick thanks to all of you that are still doing the best for my poor old picture, I am extremely grateful to you all.

I think I might have tracked the original down now and will see if I can get it scanned in HI-Res and post it up again.

Please do. Remember that the better the quality of the original, the better the results we can get for you.

A high res scan would be good. We can all have a really good go at it then. Look forward to the new image. Point though, Steve you might find that the high res scan will be a big file size. It might be too big for the Forum as I think the max is 2mb which is not very big for high res scans. You might have to upload it to a server. Make sure if this happens that it doesn'tget reduced by the servers software.

Remember that the maximum file size for a .png image that can be uploaded to our servers is 2.00 MB. To ensure no problems, make sure that your final image does not exceed 1.95 MB to give a bit of leeway.

I thought there was a restriction on the file size we could upload to the Forum server but I would suggest that as we are looking for the very best original we can get it would be pity to compress the file in any way just to get the file size down. I am going to guess that if the original photo is professionally scanned then it is going to generate a file size of at least 8Mg. Uploading to a server will then be necessary.

Steve could just get a high resolution scan, and of the file size is over 2 mb he can just zip up the contents (8mb max).

True Dom but a zipped 8mb PNG file is a lot bigger than 2MB!

Have just realised that I could steal a march here. We could connect by Team Viewer and you could upload the image to me that way!!!!!!
