    I have been amazed at all the different "profile" pictures here on this Board... It's funny, part of you have pictures of yourself so I can put faces to names, part have some of the most beautiful quilts I've ever seen, and then part of you have your pets... I have just loved seeing the variety displayed even in these pictures...

    My problem... I can't see the pictures well. Is there anyway to enlarge them when I am looking at them? The profile picture is what I am talking about. Some of your quilts are just totally gorgeous, and I'd love to take a closer look. Not sure if this is possible, but sure someone her could probably help. Thanks! And you all have a great day!

    You can always ask the QB member for a better picture. I have had several requests.

    I have an iPod touch so all I have to do is enlarge my screen to get a better look at the avatars.

    Try holding down the Ctrl button and rolling the wheel on your mouse, it should enlarge or minimize whatever your cursor is sitting on.

    You can also use the Ctrl button with + or - keys if you don't have a rolling wheel. Plus to increase the size and minus to take it back.

    On the Mac I use, hold down the key that has the apple on it (next to the space bar) and the + key (= key) key at the same time to enlarge it. (Don't use "shift", just press the = key)

    To make it smaller, press the key that has the apple on it (next to the space bar) and the - key at the same time

    My MacBook enlarges the type, but not the avatars.

    This is easier than clicking on Edit, View, then increasing the viewing size, which does the same thing.

    just hold down the control button and the plus button (on the row with your #'s on your keyboard) keep pressing control and plus button to make it bigger

    and if you want to reduce it back just hold down the control button and the minus button

    Have fun!

    So I guess the picture on everyone's "profile" is called an avatar? Guess I just learned two things today from this one question I asked!!!

    well, since my avatar is a picture of me...
    if you hold down the control button and scroll up with your middle button on your mouse, it will enlarge the entire page.
    I like to do this too :XD:
