    Help for a complete noobie please.

    I have a number of photos ahich are frame grabs from a holiday camcorder movie. As such they're of variable and limited quality. Mainly the resolution is quite low.

    Any advice on how I can improve them for printing out?

    There are plenty things you can do with packages like Photoshop to squeeze a "better" print from an image such as manipulating levels and colours. But if your image starts as poor due to the resolution itself, then there is often very little that can be done. In a low resolution the image information is not there to be boosted in the first place.

    Post them on here or email me them and I would be happy to take a look

    Thanks - I will when I get home.

    I have a feeling that I'm trying to make a silk purse etc, but its amazing what you can do these days.
