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.
    http://www.download.com/Image-Resizer/30...
    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.

LPI, PPI,DPI conversions


Here is a conversion chart for DPI (Dots per inch) to LPI (Lines per inch) or PPI (Pixels per inch)

180 DPI................31 lines/inch or 68 PPI
360 DPI................63 lines/inch or 138 PPI
720 DPI................127 lines/inch or 280 PPI
1440 DPI..............255 lines/inch or 561 PPI
2880 DPI..................510 lines/inch or 1122 PPI

If you plan to enlarge your image, it is better to enlarge it when you're scanning rather than in your application. Each time you modify
an image, you lose some quality. Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, such as a 35 mm slide or wallet-size photo, you'll need
to scan at a high enough resolution to retain your image quality, but not so high that your file size is too large to be efficient. You must
manually adjust the resolution (dpi) to maintain the same image quality when you resize your image. For example, if you have a 300
dpi 2 x 2-inch image that you want to enlarge to 4 x 4 (a factor of 200%), increase the Scale setting to 200% or change the resolution to 600 dpi.

Scanned documents' size is too large (the least I got was 600kb), how can I scan a document to a PDF with the normal size of 200kb?


You need to install a PDF writer program first. There are quite a few freeware PDF writer programs on the Internet you can download one such as CutePDF.
Scan your document the click on File - Print and select the PDF writer as the printer device. Then name and save the PDF file.

HP 5470c scanner leaves lines on the scanned


This is often caused by dirt or dust on the imaging head. This requires taking the unit apart in a CLEAN area and wiping off the head with lens cleaner and a microfiber lens cloth.

When I save a scanned document you increase the file size. Please. Thanks.


Document size can be set before you scan.
Your scanner software should give you options for type of document and resolution settings. If your documents are to large, set resolution lower.
Example, Black and white or greyscale scans are much smaller in size than color documents.
Saving files as jpg will compress the file for storage.
If you have an image editing program you can decrease the size of the file after the scan.

Scannning too slowly


Increasing the default resolution setting, would slow the scanner down, and also increase file sizes dramatically

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


Open the file with MS Paint (Start>Programs/All Programs>Accessories>Paint), go to Tools, then Stretch/Skew, then enter the size of the new image compared to the old. (100% is no change) Then click OK and save the file.

Blank Scan from HP Scanjet 5590 Flatbed Auto Feed


Scanning is possible in 'Text' mode and 'Picture' Mode. In text mode, which is simple 'Black & White", this can happen, particulalrly if the text is in color. Either you increase the contrast settings or scan the document in Grey/color and convert it to B&W using the software. By this you need not check if there is output!. ( I am assuming that otherwise the scanner is performing okay). File size in B&W is very small as compared to Grey/color.

How do I scan colored paper and still read print? HP Scanjet 8270


First thing to try is just play with all the scan settings to see what gives you the best result - try changing resolutions, type of document, type of output document, contrast, brightness, type of scan. If this doesn't give you any better results, then one of the best ways to do this is to get some plastic sheet of the same or almost the same as the predominant colour on your forms (you can go one step further and make a multi coloured filter if you are feeling creative and your forms are all identical). The text jumps out of the page and most scanners will give you a good scan - just make sure the filter is not too thick/dark. Hope this helps :)
