Help with detached garage subpanel

I have a detached garage with a sub panel. The sub panel is powered from the house via a 30 amp 110v breaker. My question is, if I put a 220v breaker into the sub panel in the garage, how many amps can I run? I'm looking for a new welder, and I need to know what kind of amperage I will have to work with. Thank you in advance!

Actually, After opening my main panel, I'm not sure that the house breaker is 110v. Sorry, I'm clueless. Here's the house breaker...Name:  image.jpg

It looks like you have a 30 amp 120/240V feed to your garage. Your welder needs to draw less than 30 amps.
