    To enlarge everyone's profile picture. I see sooo many beautiful pictures of quilt that are used as your profile pictures, I'd like to see a bigger picture. I'm amazed at the designs, the color and craftmanship of the quilts I've seen here on the QB. I sure can't wait until I get my first quilt completed. Crappy or not, as the kids say, "I'ma gonna love it". LOL Just to know that I made it myself.

    I like to learn that trick too. Or maybe everyone could just add their avatar pictures in response to this link so we could all see the photo up close. Thanks, gals and guys.

    You can enlarge the whole screen (font and pictures) by holding down the Control and "+" keys at the same time. Likewise, you can shrink it all by pressing Control and "-" keys.

    Thank, Did not know this but it just enlarges the screen and distorts the avatar. Does not show clear.

    Yes it will distort ... there's a point where the quality will disappear, just the same as when you enlarge a photo beyond its limitations. Often times posters have shown their avatar in a thread previously.

    For example, here's where you can see mine ...
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-112573-1.htm
    Pg 2 has the picture of the quilt
    Pg 5 (or is it Pg 7) has the pattern details.

    that is a beautiful quilt. I have ask for some to show me photos of their avatars. I really like seeing the details, quilting and borders. Avatars sometimes are just to small for the details. Thanks again for the control + trick. I will use that alot.

    Here's something you can try:

    Put your cursor over the picture you'd like to see better, and right click. That will bring up a menu. Just Copy the pic, then open a clean doc in Word or a similar program, and past the pic in there.

    When you click on the pic in Word, you'll get marks around the sides and at the corners. Take one of the corner marks and drag it out to enlarge the pic. The quality will go down, but it will be bigger!
