What size does a file need to be to make a quality print? 11x14, 8x10, 5x7, 4x6. I printed a pic and it was very pixelated and someone said it was because of the file size. There are some good pics I found from the morgue file and flickr that I would like to use in as a background layer but how do I know if the pic is large enough? For example I was trying to place a picture of a couple in a wine glass. I got the pic from the morgue file but it was too small and I could not use it. Someone on this forum posted a pic that she uses and it worked. Her pic size was larger I guess. Is there a way you can make a file larger?

Please indicate which version of photoshop elements you are using.
I find the help files included with the programs are very useful for the basics. Also, there are several good authors who publish good books & tutorials. Mark Galer, Deke McClelland, Philip Andrews, Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski, Corey Barker & Dave Cross to name a few.
Photoshopelementsuser com has hundreds of good tutorial videos
There is an annual $59 subscription fee to the site which publishes a magazine & online articles as well
I found the site most helpful & well worth the annual subscription fee.
Kelby Online Training also has many lessons for both photography & some versions of photoshop. Should you subscribe, you will need to end the subscription at the end of the billing month, or another month's subscription is automatically billed.
