    Copywrite and more questions

    I just purchased tickets to an autograph signing with Bo Jackson...I would love to blow up an image of my favorite card...Bo Breaker where Bo is breaking a bat over his knee. Does anyone know how I can go about doing this without running into any copywrite issues and and so that the image is high quality. I've never tried this before so I have no idea where to start or if it's even possible to do so. Any help/advice would be awesome thank you in advance.All I know to do is get the image online and save it to a flash drive then try and print it at wal greens or walmart, but I want one bigger than an 8x10. Can anyone give me advice on the best size that still produces a decent quality image and where to do this at if it's even possible to get accomplished.

    This is the biggest version i could find on the internets. Typically the bigger the file the better/clearer it will print out. save that file and upload it to adoramapix.com. It will tell you the biggest acceptable size you can print it at. I think that file will barely make an 8x10 and will probably be a bit grainy at that.

    if adoramapix won't print it as an 8x10, upload it to cvs.com for pickup at your local store. They may warn you that it won't come out crystal clear but they will still print it. If it comes out crappy and you don't want to use it, worst case scenario you are out $4 for printing it.

    btw: where's the Bo signing happening? How much are they charging?
