I want to increase size of small items to make them more legible

I want to increase the size of small items, such as claim forms from food items and photos. I've tried different methods, but all images print at original size. I'd be grateful for any assistance. Thank you.

    Wow!!! Thanks for your most prompt response, billspeer!

    I've just tried your first suggestion, but there doesn't appear to be an option of upping the size via the printer. However, I confess to have limited technical knowledge, so perhaps there's something simple I I'm missing. Quite likely!

    I tried scanning the form at a higher resolution, but that didn't work either. BTW, I'm using CanoScan Toolbox, and my scanner is the Canon LIDE 60 Flatbed Scanner.

    I've also tried to increase the scanned or printed size using ArcSoft PhotoStudio, but to no avail.

    I have checked out the online Help pages for both types of software (as above), but found nothing to assist me.

    If you can provide a different solution, I'd be most grateful Thank you very much!!!

Set your printer to let you Preview before printing. From there, make sure you have the size upped to a percentage that will fill up the entire paper. You can also try scanning forms and such at a higher resolution initially. This will give you a bigger image to work with. Let me know if these are sufficient for your needs or need a different solution.

    Okay...moving on- here's a link for a free software program that will let you resize your images up or down.
    If you look around, you'll also see a few other options as well but it seemed to be one of the most popular downloads. It appears to be fairly simple to learn and operate. Hope this works. Let me know!

    Just for clarification...I used the program myself. Pretty simple to use. I even resized picture smaller to put in my mugshot! Let me know how it works for you.

I need a list of acidic foods and a list of alkaline foods

Hi Samuel,

Here is a free printable food chart of acidic and alkaline foods courtesy of

Please keep in mind:
Some foods can be listed on the acidic or alkaline side depending on the source. Some of these food items are tomatoes, soy products, nuts & seeds, or fermented items such as sauerkraut.
Not all foods are what they seem either. Citrus would obviously be on the acidic side, right? Not true! Limes, oranges, and grapefruit are actually alkaline forming fruits!
Artificial sweeteners, alcohol, and highly processed foods are highly acidic forming that offer little or no nutritional value. These foods should be avoided or eaten very sparsely.
Not all acidic foods are unhealthy and often offer other nutritional benefits so make sure you don't avoid everything acidic and maintain a balanced diet.

The text size on Firefox is so minute I can hardly read it. If I fill in a form it becomes so small it is illegible. Do not have this problem on others, ie Google. Please help.

To reset the text size, press ctrl-0 (cmd-0 on a Mac). To temporarily increase text size, press ctrl-+. To permanently set text size, go into your preferences/options window, content tab, and look for the default font option.

Printed text is very small, not legible and does

Go to to print menu box i.e. press ctrl P. Look for zoom. There you will see "scale to paper size." Here select from the drop down list "no scaling" or "A4" depending your paper size. This shoule correct it.

In case you do not see these on your print menu click "properties" on your printer. In the box that appears look for "scale" and make it 100%. These are the components that control percentage size of original documents printed.

Many ways to change the size of objects on the screen exist. Use the Dell QuickSet tool to change the size of icons and toolbars. Additionally, use the Display item in Control Panel to change the font size or the dots-per-inch (DPI) setting. Changing the DPI setting changes the size of all items on the screen. If the screen resolution setting makes items too small, the DPI setting can be increased to compensate.
