    On my MacBook Pro I hold the control button down and do a 2 finger scroll on the touch pad, from bottom to top to enlarge, top to bottom to decrease.

    I can drag the picture out to my desktop and then zoom in on it. Don't make it too large or it will get fuzzy.

    I am sure that there is someone else on the board who might have a better suggestion for a clearer view..but if not, that might help some.

    This does not work for me. Anything else you know that might help. There have been numerous photos that I would like to see better.

    Thanks, HobbySue for the computer tip. Also happy to read about thae 100% button. I need all the hints I can get about my computer as well as the quilting. Now to understand what IPod is all about. Obviously, I don't have one of those.

    There is also at the bottom of your screen (lower right hand corner) a 100 % with an arrow.
    CLICK on the arrow and it allows you to go up to 400%.

    That's for that tidbit. I too was wondering if you could enlarge the avatar to see them better. Thanks
