I don't know what a 4R picture is, but when you're scanning, always go for the highest DPI (dots per inch)

Hi abuza8nuqina,

Am I correct in thinking that "4R" refers to the size of the picture?

If the picture has already been scanned then the image sizing tools in any photo-editing software should do the job. As for adding detail that wasn't in the original scan then obviously that can't be done but there is software out there that can attempt to fool the eye. Check out the threads Genuine Fractals 5 and Can I increase the number of pixels in an existing digital picture.

Bob.

I think 4R is the standard 6x4". A few months away from Malaysia and I've already forgotten! :?

If it's already been scanned, you won't be able to reveal any more detail from it. Apart from the software Bob suggested, Photoshop will do it also but with slightly inferior results.
