/ How to make Flickr photos bigger?
When you view the photos in the 'lightbox' there should be an option (top right) to view more sizes. This will display all of the available sizes and you just need to click the largest one, followed by a right click and save.
I'm assuming it's not your Flickr account and thus you might find the user has disabled downloading of their photos, which might prevent the above.
Remember to observe copyright and check with the photographer that they are happy for you to use their photos.
The other thing to bear in mind is that if they are just 'web quality' i.e. 72 ppi that they might not of a sufficient quality to print. You should be able to check this in the exif data for the file.
I don't think so but i'm not really an expert on this.
AFAIK you have to set the detail level when you first export the shot. After that you could increase the ppi from 72 - 240/300 but it wouldn't be the same as creating the image at the higher ppi.
I might be wrong and someone will probably be along to correct me soon enough :)
Shouldn't you be asking the photographers' permission to use the photos anyway? In which case, couldn't you get them to email you the original?
Ok, so that means the image will have been uploaded by some institution or other (libraries etc.)?
You could still ask them for a higher resolution copy couldn't you?
Maybe check their own websites to see if they have a higher resolution copy in an image bank of their own?
You could fudge it but the images would still be low quality (so I won't bother telling you how), the editor doesn't want that, he wants original high res images.
