I'm confused! Help - images are blurry

Hello!

I'm loving everything I come across. Everyone is so talented! I am a little confused on using/downloading the available images though. Whenever I find an image I like, I go to the photobucket & download it. But, on most images when I try to print they come out blurry. With my VERY limited understanding of images, I see that they have a 300 dpi and the resolution of most are only 600-900, making them only 2-3 inches big full size if I'm understanding how that works correctly. So I guess what I'm thinking is that an image used for a t-shirt transfer would be tiny if used as the full size intended. Whenever I tried in the Windows print option to do an 8x10 or 5x7 most things wind up blurry. I feel like I'm missing a simple step, but I can't figure out what. Any general suggestions?

Thank you!

Are you clicking on the images to make sure you are downloading the full size?

you are definitely getting thumbnails and then, I assume, trying to resize? that will always make the image blurry.

be sure you download the full image...never try to right click and save as since that will NOT be the full resolution image.

Open up the DISign and click on the Options button and you will then be able to download the proper image

Well, I think I'm getting the full size image. I click on the image, then download under the options menu.

Here's 2 I have in mind that have smaller resolution. I think I'm missing something!

I am looking at the Texas Rangers DISign in my print preview and it looks perfectly clear as an 8 x 10

and it was DISigned at 8.5 x 9 inches
