Thanks TG how do you get that to work then....I've tried right clicking but there are no options that look right.... Just pointing the curser at the image does nothing either. Or do you have to look at the big image that Catz posted first :idea: :oops:

Foxy,

I can magnify up to 200% by clicking on "view" on my toolbar which doesn't help me at all, I'm still rubbish at this game!

If you have Windows XP, do this:

Save the image to disk (right click, choose save as).

If you double click it, you should go straight to the 'Windows Picture and Fax Viewer' - there will be a row of buttons at the bottom (the first two are 2 blue arrows, then a few with a projector screen, then a couple with magnifying glasses, one +, one -). If you don't end up here, right click the saved image, and choose 'preview'.

You can now use those + and - keys to zoom in and out - once you've clicked the + you'll be given the ability to click anywhere on the image, and zoom in that section.

If you have a middle mouse button, or button a scroll wheel, you can press and hold that over the image to get a little hand, which will allow you to move the image around. Otherwise, you can use the scroll bars at the right and bottom of the image.

PLEASE NOTE! As the picture is so big, unless you have a very powerful computer zooming and moving can be a little bit slow - just have some patience :)

Well I don't know what route Bob took but he certainly got around !!!!!!!
Here's where I think he got to....

St Johns church(or chapel)
The shops at Seafield (MFI)
Big W
The lovely new building at the foot of Bath St
Portobello High School
St Johns primary school
and finally the funny building next to Bookers cash and carry in Musselburgh, can't remember what it is or called though.

Now I'm definitely retiring !!!

Would think the image is too old for that (i.e. the stuff on the golf course, no Brunstane-Newcraighall railway line, ...)? But, it would appear to be that site...
