    I wish we were able to bring up a larger picture of members avatars. Sometimes when members change their avatars to a quilt they have just completed I would like to see a larger picture. Not everyone posts a picture of their avatar. Some quilts I can make out, others not so much. What's your thoughts?

    Sometimes when I am looking at a quilt pic someone has posted, I (just out of habit) click on it, absently thinking I can make it bigger!

    Hey, I just tried something and it worked!

    Right click on the avatar. Chose "save picture as" and then save it in your computer's picture gallery. THEN you can zoom in on the pic and view it making it as big as you like.

    Do you have a mouse with a little wheel on it? Put your curser on the picture, hold down the Control button and move that little wheel towards you. The picture will get larger!!! then just move the wheel the other way to make the picture bigger. Try it out.

    If you place your cursor on the picture, push control + it will get larger each time you push the + sign. Then control - to go back to normal.

    Also, on my computer (running Microsoft 2007 & using Windows Internet Explorer) on the bottom right hand corner of my screen there is a # % with a down arrow. My default is 100%, but you can change that to a higher % and get larger type and pictures and then can change it back to your default when done.

    all things considered, i don't think this is the time to start asking for new bells and whistles. :lol:

    soooooo i'm tickled pink that so many members have told us about such a variety of simple tricks we can use to see the avatars in a more convenient size. :thumbup:

    This is what I have also and you can use this feature to zoom up to 400%. If you don't have this feature I believe Sadiemae mentioned that all you have to do is use "Control +" to enlarge your screen and "Control -" to go back to the normal default. EASY PEEZY! :-D

    I am amazed and thrilled to learn these new computer tricks...well, new to me. Especially the wheel, which I feel like I just invented. LOL
