 ???I am going bonkers trying to pixelate a photo - but I need black outlines around each pixel to separate them - so I can identify each one on the printout - I have tried drawing them in with a ruler but the pixels are small thus kinda hard to work with.  If anyone can give me advice on how to do this or if there is a program that can do this (I have been trying to do it using photoshop without success but that could be I am not a pro with it).  HELP!!!!!!!  Huh

Where the wild things are is where I am most at home!

I'm quite sure that PSP [paint shop pro] has the pixilating option...  Undecided

an easy way to pixelate a picture in photoshop is to use the mosaic filter. to access this filter you go to filters, then pixelate, then mosaic. there is a slider that allows you to make the squares as large as you would like. it does not create an outline around the pixels, but you can make them large enough to see easily. i hope this helps

My computer has a program called "paint it".
If you copy the image into there, then make it smaller by quite a bit, then back to the normal size, making sure you click out in between, it should pixelate nicely. Fiddle around for a bit to get the right size etc.

I want your lungs to stop working without me.
