I tried to do a search on it, but was only able to get very little. I have many questions, and was hoping to get answers from people all ot once, preferrably from people who really, know, as things change very quickly, and older information may be out of date.

I am pretty new to this folks, too, so bear with me. I'm more used to video.

I have the following picture (this version is shrunken a little bit, but just to give you an idea), and I want to edit it with Paint Shop Pro.

What exactly would I need to do to make it look pretty?

The picture originally is a little bit smaller, so i neeed to expand it. When I do that, it is a little bit grainy.

How can I get rid of that?

When I do try ot expand it to 1042 x 768, it's never in proper proportion. Is it ok if I have it close enough to that?

Also, should I save is in bitmap or jpeg?

What else can I do?

Only adjust one of the 2 parameters. Also make sure you have keep aspect ratio enabled.

You might also want to look for PSP 7.04  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Never upsize pictures. It doesn't work well. Scan or record them at larger than what you want and downsize. That will reduce grain (which is really noise unless you use very grainy film or underexpose seriously) too.

Use sharpen and unsharp mask, and if needed the curves tool. Clone out (or use "automatic small scratch removal) to remove any dustspots or scratches.

That should make it look nice and crisp. PSP might be able to do something about the grey sky. I think there is a clouds mask to create nicelooking clouds. Combine that with a skyblue background  Smile/happy/getting dizzy (but a.net might not like you for doing so).

Thank you.

And otherwise, do you think the photo itself has potential?

Can't really tell at this size. Composition is nice, it looks sharp (but because of the small amount of data, not as sharp as it could be. Light is good.

Maybe it is just me, but the A320 body looks......flattened.

Like...shmushed...

But kudos to you for it being jetBlue!
