It can't be done without cropping-- a 5x7 will always have a different aspect ratio than a 20x30 image. If you don't crop and want to "grow" the 5" side to 20" the 7" side will end up 28" long, or, conversely, if you want to make the 7" side 30" long the 5" dimension will need to be 21.4".

This is why a 35mm negative will always have some image content missing when it is printed on 3.5 x 5; in order to preserve all of the scene it must be printed to 4x6 to preserve the aspect ratio (2x3) because the 35mm negative is 24mm x 36mm-- a 2x3 aspect.

In photoshop or a imaging software, you open the picture, and go to image size, then chose your target size with the "preserve scale" option

You can select the size of your scan by looking at the prescan.

Scanning Size


Do not try to change the scan size, change the resolution. The window that appears when you want to scan should have a resolution (DPI) area that can be changed. IE: 300 DPI to 800 DPI. This changes the picture size.

When I scan back screen comes up blue and words and numbers are


http://fixunix.com/hewlett-packard/101142-scanjet-5400c-dead.html

following this link i've found resetting instructions for this scanner:


1.. Disconnect the USB cable and the power cable from the
scanner. Make sure the power cable is still connected to the
power source.
2.. Press the Scan and Email buttons at the same time, while
plugging the power cable back into the scanner. The scanner will
enter a Demo Mode.
3.. Press the Cancel button on the scanner to start the test.
4.. To end the test, disconnect and reconnect the power cable
without holding the buttons down.


I've had exactly the same problem with my scanjet 5400c (blue distorted images) but after resetting the scanner (see instuctions posted above) the problem was fixed

DR-9080C intermittent stops during scanning which last 3 to 5 minutes


Do you have enough hard disk space? Reinstall your driver software. Run Scandisk on the Comp.

Is the problem coming on after a set time interval, any heating smell?

Scanning problem!


First Scan only a single page and note file size. Now scan 3 or 4 pages ad check the file size. If it is more, then the scanner is clubbing/collating all the images into a single file. Check your software settings and disable this feature if you want individual files.
