Hi all. not sure how to word this, often when a website has images, you get the image up, and most times if you left click the image enlarges, in fact the mouse pointer changes to a small cross, is there any way to save the larger image.................thank you

I don't think you have described your problem badly at all, just failed to grasp that whatever you do with your mouse, the underlying file remains the same size, you are merely presenting it differently.

My daughter will persist in sending interesting snaps and instead of the full size being attached, we have small pics which will not stand any enlargement.

In your case try with a picture complete (not oversized) a right click/Save_As, Then open the file in your picture editor. In my Corel Photopaint there is an >Image > "Resample" which will allow me to shrink or enlarge the image and save it in the best version I can make.

Have you right clicked on the larger image?

just tried the right click again on the larger image to make sure I was not being complete idiot :-) and it saves it to the smallers size, the image on the websites starts as large thumbnail, double click it to get a much larger image, click that and it becomes bigger still, and that is what I want to save

..so what happens when you try my suggestion on the enlarged image? rightclick on the image, 'view image info'... (rest of it is on page 1)

Mouse wheel and pressing the ALT button and you can change the size to which you need. Use snipping tool.

Should be CTRL and wheel as Diemmess stated.

It may well be just one image that is zoomed. Having captured it then you may have to enlarge it.
