    I've read at several places that the best way to enlarge
    an image is to do it in steps of, say, 10%.
    Is there a way of doing it automatically with PS 7.0?
    Or, is there some other way that you suggest?
    Thank you guys for all your help.

    Do it once, recording it as an Action which you then name and save.
    Subsequently, you can run that Action as many times as you need.

    Open an image you want res up.

    Open the Actions palette and select "New Set".

    Name it "Creeping Increase" or whatever you like.

    Now select New Action and call it "1.5 Increase"

    Next go to Image/Size and put a check in "Resample" and "Constrain
    Proportions"

    with Bicubic and change the width drop down to "percent" and enter 110.

    Now go to "Image Size" do the same 3 more times.

    Then "Stop Recording"



    Next "New Action" Name it "2.0 Increase"

    Now "Edit/Purge All"

    Next select the "1.5 Increase" in the Actions Palette

    and press the Play button.

    select the "1.5 Increase" again,

    press the Play button again.

    Stop Recording.



    "New Action" Name it 3.0 Increase.

    "Edit/Purge All"

    Select and play the "2.0 Increase"

    Select and play the "1.5 Increase"

    Stop Recording.



    "New Action" Name it 4.0 Increase.

    "Edit/Purge All"

    Select and play the "3.0 Increase"

    Now "Image Size" 110 percent.

    And again "Image Size" 110 percent.

    Stop Recording.



    Save the Action.
