How do you make images really big?

I notice in some player's photo forums, there are some quite big photos, bigger than the original I am assuming because they are huge (eg. look at the pic in the first post of this thread: Start of a new year, pictures 2007!). I was wondering how do these people make these photos so big? Or is it just from a website where all the photos are big?

Thanks.

Re: How do you make images really big?

I believe it's because the photos are of high resolution in the first place (ie: 1600 x 1400 pixels) and are hosted somewhere else (maybe on flickr or on a personal server.) To post them here in their original high resolution, the poster would use the [ IMG ] [/ IMG ] tags and put the images' URL in between, just like usual. I hope this answers the question.

yes, in most cases I would say, it is like that.

In less cases, sometimes a link to a picture can be bigger than the image appears on a page, but it's not often. For example, the real size of a picture is 600x400, but in the coding of the homepage you can say that it only takes the dimension of 300x200.

And in general, you can always make a picture bigger, but not without loss of quality. But that's not what you're meaning here
