What you require is a desktop publishing program not an image program.

Have you got Microsoft word as you can do this within that, however the program I would recommend is Microsoft Publisher, which is actually designed for creating new letters etc, and can create borders, manipulate images, text, styles etc.

Would you like me to link you to where you can source Publisher, and a video on how to use it?

Thank you for your reply.
Please send me a link to a video instruction on Publisher.
Expert:  JamesI replied 6 months ago.

Have a look at the video here, and let me know if you think thats inline with what you need.

With regard to printing in PDF you can download a PDF printer free of charge, and I would recommend using the one here.

Is microsoft publisher free?
Expert:  JamesI replied 6 months ago.

Publish is part of the Microsoft Office suite, if you have Microsoft Office Professional it is included in this package.

Expert:  JamesI replied 6 months ago.

You can normally buy Publisher online for around £50, you can also try it free using the link here.

I've just watched the publisher video. However when I want to copy and paste a recruitment advert into publisher and enlarge it, it distorts the text and picture. I would like it exactly like the original but larger. Please advise
Expert:  JamesI replied 6 months ago.

I see, it sounds like the issue is due to the original image being too low resolution.

Can you send me an example so I can confirm its the original image at fault and not the software?

I want to create a page with either 1/4 page adverts on (which would be 4 on a page) or 12cm x 5.3cm or a mix of both on each page. I have sent you an example page from someone with a similar set up and some example adverts that would need to be enlarged.

The DingDong image provided is of a poor resolution, for instance you wouldnt want to send them to the printers if creating flyers.

When viewing the DingDong advert it couldnt be a quarter of a page without it being fuzzy, its already pixelated opening it normally which is about 12 x 5.

The second add for the NHS should be sufficient and I can increase and decrease the size without any issue.

Are you seeing a problem with both images?
