Uh, actually, the p stands for Pica. Measurement shorthand for pixels is "px," but "p" is shorthand for Pica, the professional designer's measurement system.

Erin's photo should have been about 12 times the size.

When I saved an image in jpeg format, I was asked to choose Mac or PC byte order, and selected Mac. How can I change the byte order of an existing jpeg to PC now?


I have an image that is 2580 x 1932 and I would like to reduce it to an 8 x 10 and a 5 x 7 yet keep it a high resolution pic. I would like to have the photo smaller in size yet high resoltion. If I zoom into a pic after I have reduced it's size it has lost some of the resolution and I would like to know how to avoid that. I am not worried about the size of the file as all I want to do is send 8 x 10 and 5 x 7 pics via e-mail for someone to print. How would I go about doing that?

I wanted to know of how to make a static image, drawn in photoshop with a paint brush, looking like a realistic glass statue? I would appreciate your help! Thank you!
