My Very FIRST Enlarged Photo

Thanks to Robin, at Robin's Nesting Place, I took this photo from last spring and enlarged it! It is a rather complex process, however. I wish someone would tell Blogger to 'get with the picture' and make it less complicated to enlarge our photos!


  1. Yippee, it worked! It's a beautiful picture too!

    I wish the process were more simple too. Maybe they will eventually increase the large size on the Blogger upload or offer an extra large.

  2. Nice! I just learned to manipulate photo widths myself within the HTML coding. Is that what you did? Just change the width to what you want and erase the height? Anyway, nice pansies!

  3. Very good job and a beautiful picture to boot!

  4. Gorgeous bloom, Jan! I was wondering what flower it was. Thank you Karen, for the help. Seeing so many pansies and violas, I wanna know Jan, if it's possible to make them survive tropical climates? If so what do I need to do? Tips are greatly appreciated

  5. Hi Jen
    I will try me on it but it seems complicated.

    Have a nice day


  6. Yes, tell us how to do it too! It looks great.

  7. Robin-thank you! I am wondering if we enlarge them frequently if this uses up more of our alloted 'space' for photos on our blog? I noticed there is only so much allowed...

    Karen, Gunilla & Victoria: Go to Robin's plot and read what she had to say about it for instructions, as I'm not good at explaining this!! You do go in and change the html, but it's done through picasa, which is where your photos automatically upload from blogger anyway, so you don't need to actually 'know' html!

    Thanks very much, Tina!

    Chandra, the flower is a pansy...and it prefers cooler, shadier environments. They particularly do very well here during the spring and fall. I am not certain how they would survive in India; just as I am not able to grow an amaryllis, you might not be able to grow a pansy. It's only fair, you know:) ha--just kidding:)

  8. Hi there Jan :-)

    Excellent work - great pic too! Now... we just need to see some enlarged pics of your birds too ;-)

    I bet you're looking forward to trying that out. Have fun :-D

  9. Might have been a pain for you, but what a great picture for us!!!

  10. Jan .. that shot of brilliant yelow is jjust what I need this morning .. how about doing a post on how to do this ?? please ??? LOL

  11. If I were a bee, I'd be inside that yellow pansy.


  12. Hi Shirl,
    Yes, I think I will try it with birds. I'm not sure if they will be as clear as flowers but the only way to find out is to give it a try:)

    Thank you, flydragon,
    It really wasn't a 'pain'...just a few more steps than one would normally take. I think it might be easier the more you do it:)

    I'm happy I brought JOY to your life this morning with my bright yellow flower!
    Robin already did the I really don't want to re-do what she did. Why not check out her website & scroll down to that post?

    That's such a sweet thing to say--makes me want to go back to bed and snuggle up under my (yellow) blankets;)
    REMEMBER: is where you can get the info!!!

  13. Graeat job, Jan! I didn't realize we have limited space on blogger. How much and what happens when you use it up?--Randy

  14. Very, very nice. I love the colors and the composition.

  15. Great job Jan! It's a great shot too.

  16. And a lovely photo it is, too, Jan! We can use all the color we can get this time of year.

  17. How gorgeous Jan! The color jumps off the page!

  18. Looks great, I was thinking about that in the middle of the night, trying to remember all the steps. Well what else do you do when you can't sleep?

    And yes, Blogger should get it together, on a few more issues than this one.


  19. Jan, I may be totally wrong on this, but I've been thinking that the Picasa space is determined by the original pixel size when uploaded and that is the same whether it is a thumbnail or large. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong about this.

    When I first started my blog I didn't decrease the size of my pictures and they used up so much space very fast. I'm 3/4 of the way full and need to go back to decrease the size of those original pictures. I've done a few but have so many more to do.

  20. Very cheery for this chilly winter day ... good job!

  21. Pansies are one of my favorite annuals. I guess I go the other way--I reduce my photos before posting to save disk space (as I don't buy space to store them).
    ~ Monica

  22. Randy, Read Robin's last comment. I think it has to do with how large your photos are when you actually upload them. There is a total amt. of space alloteed before we have to start reducing or deleting our photos/contents in the blog:(

    Thank you for your nice comments, and I'm glad you all like the flower!

    Jen: I agree with you:) But now I'm thinking I better be careful about being negative towards Blogger...because after all, it is a totally FREE service! In truth, I guess we are fortunate that we aren't paying for this!

    Thanks for your info. here. I thought there was something about a cap on number of pixels we take up. I don't understand it, really--but I'm realizing I will eventually have to go back and reduce or eliminate content/photos. That's sad, isn't it? Hmm. What to do with the stuff we take off?? Where shall we put them?
    I need to stop thinking about this. It's information overload!

    Hi Joey:) So glad it cheered you up!

    Hmm, that's interesting. I don't buy space to store the photos either. I have them on my harddrive and they automatically upload from Blogger to's just the way Google handles this now. We don't pay...but, there is a cap. I'll play around with the large photos and then down the road reduce their size if need be:)

  23. Jan,

    It looks wonderful! Great job!

    I was thinking about the free space allowed on Picasa myself. You can always buy more if you ever hit their limit of free space. I try to keep my photos no more than 40KB by optimizing them before upload, and usually they are a lot smaller- not great images, but they will have to do until I get a great camera!

    I have noticed that Robin's images are sometimes in the 100's or more (KB)- and of course they are always spectacular! I'll have to play around with this. Picasa does give you 1MB (or 1024 KB), so getting there is gonna take a while! I usually keep an eye on the numbers at the bottom on the main page on Picasa- the page that shows you all your albums :). And after learning about photo storage management, I went through some of my images on past posts and redid them. Making sure you delete photos that you're not using anymore, and any images that you have in any drafts on your blog that never quite made it to publish, those 2 things are often overlooked space wasters.

    I can't wait for my pansy to bloom! For now, I'll enjoy yours!

  24. One more thought on this.

    Picasa goes by the size of your image's file- not it's dimensions. With image editing software, you can change the size of a photo, and optimize it to get a smaller file size. Optimizing it to get a smaller file size means lowering the image quality- so you have to find a happy medium between file size and quality- very easy with them being in .jpeg format. And something Robin does very well! I don't have the software Robin uses- wonderful software...I want it Robin! I use Paintshop Pro 7 that my sister gave me when she upgraded to the latest version. There are other ways to do it- and some are free. The Gimp is one off the top of my head. It is supposed to be compared to Photoshop and is free! Look for the download at (CNET). There is also a book about this software that you can get to help learn it.

    I know, I'm long winded!

  25. Thank you Tessa, that is really good advice. I do have 'drafts' with photos sitting on them, and never even thought of them as 'using up space'. I also have a ton of photos that automatically uploaded to picassa, that I really don't even want there. It's a little strange to me how everything just ends up there. That's fairly new feature that I didn't realize was happening until recently. I need to go in there and take a lot of those old, unused photos out. They are still on my personal computer, so I won't be 'losing' them.
    Great ideas Tessa! I'm still learning, too. Robin is a pro!!!

  26. Tessa, somehow your second message got published prior to my answer to your first one!!!! Sorry!

    As for your 2nd message, that is a lot of great info! When, and if, I ever have enough time to look into it all, I will--but this stuff is SO time consuming:) I need to have a life, too!!!

    I don't have any special photo editing software that I'm using...I have Picture Project, that came with my Nikon D-40 camera...but I don't really like that anymore. Lately I've just been using the Picasa features. But, it would be better to use Paint Shop Pro, or even something better. I just don't want to spend the money; or even download another program and try to learn it. Maybe later;)

    Thank you very much for all your advice & info. Good luck to you with all of your blogging and photos, and have fun!!

  27. Jan,
    Love looking at your site. Will have to explore all the postings. Thanks for visiting.
    Yes we are military, retired, due to retire again in about a year and a half. This area really has a lot to offer.

  28. Wow, what a vivid yellow, makes one all warm inside looking at it! Great job.

    Now if you decide to ever move your blog typepad makes it ohhh so easy to enlarge and otherwise tweak photos.

    I'm going to add you to my blog roll if you don't mind, I just love visiting your birds! Kim

  29. Good job Jan! It's great learning from other bloggers isn't it?

  30. Hey Jan,

    I'm so sorry I caused you some info overload- I know just how that feels!

  31. That is such a beautiful picture.

  32. Hi QofS: So glad you visited today. I'm hoping later in the spring we can get some of the VA gardeners together. There are quite a few of us!

  33. ...ooops Queen of Seaford, I meant to call you Janet! So, thanks again,Janet:)

    Dear Kim: Thanks for the idea to think about typepad. I have no idea what that there a fee? Is it easy to transfer your whole blog without losing anything? I still like Blogger, I am just noticing a few glitches here and there. Thanks for adding me to your followers list; You are already on mine:)

    VP (Veep!) Yes it is quite interesting when we all 'connect' and actually do something somewhat 'significant' together online! It really shows how neat this blogging thing can be:)

    Tessa: Don't worry, please:) It wasn't your fault at's just a function of our current age of technology. There is always going to be more & more to learn, and some of us may or may not choose to keep up with every new thing that comes along:)

    Hey Bonnie, how are ya? I haven't visited you in a while, I'll have to come over soon:) Thanks for stopping by and leaving a compliment:)

  34. Great choice of photo!

    And thanks for your comments om my blog :)
    Klem -Hilde

  35. Hilde,
    I enjoyed my visit;) And thank you for coming by to mine!

  36. V y Yo has left a new comment on your post "SkyWatch Friday 1/1/08":

    Hi Jan, I copied and pasted the comment V y Yo sent me on a Skywatch post. I just kept the whole message because it kind of belonged together. Someone also gave me instructions on changing things on my template in an email. I tried it and it made my template off center. I didn't save it, so I don't know if my pics would have been bigger or not. Let me know if you want me to send that to you. Nice pic, btw!

    Hi Sue Happy New Year!!!!
    Sorry for taking so long to answer your question, here it goes:
    to make the pictures bigger, I went to the "Daily picture" site and they explain it all, just follow the steps (they are easy), then, before you post your pictures, you need to change the "px" to 640 and 480 or 480 and 640
    Let me know if you need more help, I can send you more detail info
    Thanks for visiting my blog;)

  37. Hi Sue! Wow, that's another huge pile of information to overload my brain!!

    It's amazing there is more than 1 way to do this.

    I'm not sure I understand clearly what V y Yo had to say; I'll need to look into it...when I get more time (right:))

    Really, though, thanks very much for sending the info along; it's now here on my post for anyone else that stops by and wants to see it!

    Hope you are well:)

  38. Yes, we're well, just a little behind on things. I just put up my Skywatch pics, and went ahead and enlarged them this way. You just put the pics in your post, then go to edit html, and find everywhere where it says something like 400x300. I forgot what the second number is, and then change the numbers to 640 and 480.

    Someone sent me instructions on how to change the width of the template, but I don't know if it makes the pics bigger. I think I mentioned that it made my blog off center, so I didn't save the change. It would be nice if you didn't have to change it every time, but it went faster than I thought it would, to make my bunches of pics larger.

  39. Very pretty photograph.
    After three years of blogging and lots and lots of photographs I finally used up all my free space on Blogger. Now I pay a small fee. I post slide shows and they take lots of room. I do like the large photos. My husband has been after me to enlarge mine...I will think about it. Yours sure do look good!

  40. I'm not sure what Robin posted about this, but I just click on the photo and drag the corner until it's the exact size I want.

  41. I should add that I use Photobucket for my photo storage. I used up all but 10MB of my Blogger space a few months ago. That's when I started adding them from Photobucket.

  42. Hi Jan, I join with your other visitors to tell you what a perfectly clear photo you've captured. We can grow pansies in the winter but they don't last when once the weather is steadyily warm in March. They do well even in freezing temps for a short period. So I can see why areas north of me plant them.
    Blessings for your day, Meems

  43. Well done Jan and it is a beautiful photo! Yellow is my favourit spring color. WOW big is beautiful./ Tyra

  44. Jan, I've also been wanting to figure out this enlargement thing, so thanks for the link. I saw that you were wondering about not being able to enlarge some of your photos. I also have the same issue. Have you figured out what the problem is yet? Would love to know!

  45. It turned out beautifully!! Well done!!

  46. Great job, I need to learn how to do it

  47. Jan,

    Wonderful! I tried this, too but haven't posted mine...It's a lot of work if you have multiple photos!
    Have a great weekend!


  48. Dear Jan, TAG your IT!


  49. Jan, that is odd that the same thing happened to you too. Please go ahead and do the post. I'd like to read about it.

  50. That's such a beautiful shot and the yellow is so vibrant! But such technicality is not for me. I can't even figure out...but you did a great job! Wish you a wonderful 2009!!

  51. great color.
    i just love super-sized pics...they pop~
    have a great week.
    i hope to get back to posting later this week...lots going on in my world.
    until later.


  52. Your photo is amazing! It was well worth the trouble to enlarge it. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind comment.

  53. Unbelievable !
    I can just feel the texture of the pansy.
    I'm still thinking about making my pics larger but if you like the size I's simple.

  54. I saw this post of Robin's. Great job! The yellow pansy is so vibrant...a sight for sore eyes on this frigid winter day.
    I was looking for your e-mail to answer your comment questions on my Bloom Day post...but I can't see one, so will answer here:
    Both geraniums and begonias are not hardy in our zone 5. They won't survive a hard frost, which I think you get in VA. If that's the case, you'd have to treat them as annuals too. Both plants overwinter well in the house. They're known as tender perennials. If you Google 'tender perennials' you'll find a definition of that term.
    Hope this helps. My e-mail is linked to my name in this comment...if you have any more questions.


Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to comment! Please enjoy your TODAY and all of the gifts in YOUR garden of life!
