Solve photo problems with image-editing tools

Use Adobe Photoshop to liven up gray skies in your landscapes and remove distracting bystanders. Plus: Make high-quality photo enlargements for free with SmillaEnlarger.

How Not to Enlarge a Photo



This photo is blocky and pixelated--yech. What happened? I tried using Photoshop Elements to enlarge a small photo. Though Photoshop Elements is great at resizing photos downward, it isn't adept at blowing them up--it merely duplicates pixels, with unpleasant results. Fortunately, some stand-alone programs on the market use advanced math to infer details when enlarging an image. GenuineFractals is one example, but it's expensive (US$160). Even better is a free alternative, SmillaEnlarger.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
