Ok, when I first got my macbook, I did something really silly in iPhoto trying to change about photo's in the film rolls, without reading how to do it properly.

Basically, I put all the photo's on my desktop and manually moved them back in to where I wanted, then deleted the originals. As a result, all my photo's from before that date (there wasn't too many luckily) are all really low resolution.

They're all 360x270pixels, when all my other photos are about 3000-odd. This didn't bother me as I didn't want to print any of these pics, but recently my boyfriend's family dog died, and his brother would like a picture I took of him (on the beach with ears flapping in the wind ) blown up, but the resolution is far to low to even print on a 6x4 postcard....

I just can't work out how to change the resolution - is it possible?

Yes it is possible, with cs3 or a program that blows up pictures. Click on the following link to learn how to do this.

It won't blow up well no matter what program you upres it with, you can't get detail from no detail.

What you need to do is to try to locate the original. Are you sure you deleted the originals, or just moved them to another folder?
