ENLARGED PIXELS

Enlarged Dancers

You don't need to know photoshop to edit pictures. Both PCs and Macs have free photo croppers: In PC, right click on your photo and open with the photo cropper (see  below.)  Next, crop image using the cropper on the right hand OR the resize tool, also on the right.  CLICK HERE for MAC directions.
