Can anyone tell me how to enlarge the posted pictures from auctioneers? When I look at the photo galleries they are small pics. I click on them and they get a little bigger. But not big enough. I see people using their ipads or whatever and they can enlarge pics just by moving their fingers. I am using a desk top and do not own a ipad,etc. (old school here).

As I am an old fart and technology challenged(as well as other things) I am asking if their is another way. If there is please make it simple...... :? :roll:

I have a PC and hard drive also. This was a lot easier before AZ some time ago changed the pictures to .cgi files, which are impossible for me to work with (trying to save in my hard drive and enlarge).

Try this - what you are doing is copying the picture and then pasting it into your Word Processing system :

First - open your Word Processing system to a blank document as though you were going to write a letter or something.
Leave the blank word processing page open. On the internet, go into AZ to the auction in which you'd like to enlarge some pictures.

On the main listing page click on VIEW FULL PHOTO GALLERY.

When the gallery page of photos opens, find a picture that you want to view in a larger size and LEFT CLICK on the picture so it comes up by itself in a pop up window.

RIGHT CLICK on the picture and a list of choices will appear.

LEFT CLICK on "COPY IMAGE"

NOW go back to your Word Processor blank document page, and RIGHT CLICK somewhere in the page. Choose PASTE from the list of choices that appears - LEFT CLICK on PASTE and the picture should appear.

LEFT CLICK on the picture to create a "frame" around the picture. Now move your mouse cursor over the bottom right corner of the frame. Left click on the bottom right corner (on a DOT or a BOX or something like that) and HOLDING THE MOUSE BUTTON DOWN. drag your hand to the right and the picture should enlarge.

ANOTHER OPTION is to use the "Email photo" option back in the beginning list of choices (instead of "COPY PICTURE"). I am not sure how to handle it from there but at least you have an email of the picture(s) you want.

If you get lost anywhere find a child to help you. The younger the better but the child must be old enough to talk so they can tell you what they are doing. This is like the "New Math" -- so simple that only a child can do it !!!?

Good luck !!

If anybody has a better way, or can tell me how to work with .cgi files would you post it here ? I would be grateful, THANKS!

;) Thank you Bob.

I had to double check the Right - Left - Right and was hoping I wouldn't get in an extra Dosey-Do.

It was so much easier before they changed to .cgi files - I need to ask my tech if there is a simple way to work with them.
