How do I enlarge a photo before printing?

How do I enlarge a photo before I print it so It doesn't pixelate? I did it one time but can't figure it out again.

Hello, @Roxann – Greetings!
 

Thanks for engaging in the HP Forums! I see by your post that you are experiencing printer issues. I will certainly do my best to help you 🙂

 

Going through your post, I understand that you are trying to enlarge the pictures before printing. You can use applications such as Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Paint to enlarge the images before you print.


If you do not use an application such as Photoshop, you can use the Paint applications which comes with the Windows. Here are the steps:
 

  • Click the Windows Start menu button and type "Paint." When the "Paint" icon appears, click that icon to launch the Paint program.
  • Press "Ctrl" and "O" to open Paint's file selection window.
  • Find the image you wish to print and double-click it. Paint will display the image on its editing canvas.
  • Press "Alt" and "F." A drop-down window opens.
  • Hold your mouse cursor over the "Print" option to open the "Print Options" dialog.
  • Click the "Page Setup" option. Paint opens the "Page Setup" window.
  • Locate the "Scaling" section, and click "Adjust To." Type a percentage value in the "Normal Size" text box. For instance, if you wish to print the image at 70 percent of its normal size, enter 70. Click "OK" to close the "Page Setup" window.
  • Press "Ctrl" and "P" to open the "Print" window. Click one of the printers in the "Select Printer" section and click "Print." Paint will send the image to that printer and adjust its size to match the value you entered in the "Normal Size" text box.

 

Let me know if that helps!

Good luck 🙂
