    I have tried to print some photos taken by a mobile phone and put on the internet. I want to print 6 x 4 ins but I only get passport size. Is there a way to print size 6 x 4?

    Thank you for your reply kjacko. I didn't take the photos. I am now told they were not taken with a phone but with a digi camera and put on 'Facebook' and that photos on there are compressed and that is why they can't be enlarged. Sorry I didn't give you the full info,

    No worries. I think you've now answered your own question though yes?

    Someone in my family answered it Kjacko but they don't know how to uncompress them.

    They aren't stricly compressed, they are reduced in size and resolution to suit the website, so they will likely be 72dpi (screen resolution), so no good for printing really, which requires min of 150dpi otherwise they look horrible.
    You'd really need the orginal pics to work from.

    After a lot of fiddling and trial and error, I right clicked them on facebook, copied them and then pasted them into 'my pictures' and they have printed off perfectly. Thank you for your help. Casso
