    I have several diagrams in .gif format. Right now they fit 4 on a (letter-sized) page, but I need to enlarge them to fit one to a page.
    Is there a way to do this without having them go so jagged that they can't be read? I've tried in Photoshop with no luck, and I'm thinking now if I open them in Illustrator I could re-save them as .ai and the open them in that format and resize?
    Would that work? I have not used Illustrator enough to know what the options are.
    Any help or suggestions gratefully accepted.

    Give VectorMagic a look. you can do it free on their site or buy their desktop software. I've used it a few times. Works pretty good if the image is basic enough. Text doesn't usually come out so well.

    Ronald - I'll check that out when I have a minute. But I needed the pages for this afternoon. The diagrams are for a mounted Drill Team, and they have quite a bit of text on them explaining the various patterns and how the horses have to maneuver. Anyway, I printed them out in the original size (about 3" x 5") and then took 'em to our local equivalent of Staples and had them blown up - then brought the bigger images home and scanned them so each rider will have a full set. This actually worked pretty well, since I could reverse them for the two groups of riders - (there is a right-hand group and a left-hand group).

    OK - so I tried Vector Magic to see how it would handle these images - and it didn't work at all, the text was totally unreadable. I may try it again, though, maybe with something simpler, less black-lines-on-white.
