Question about HP Scanjet 5590 Flatbed Scanner
How do I scan pages smaller so more can be sent in a file
Since there's not much information, I'm going to have to make a lot of assumptions with this solution.
The basic issue you have is not the scanning, it's the scaling after the scanning. Since you do not indicate what software you are using to scan the image, I can't be certain without knowing what you're using, but most of these scanning packages allow you to 'resize' or 'scale' the image. How much to scale depends on how large the original is, and how small you need the final version, so some experimentation may be in order. As an example, with my scanner, I typically resize to about 50% of the original.
If you don't have that option, most graphics programs allow this fairly easily (you simply save, then open the scanned image in the image editor and perform the scaling there). Or, some programs even let you resize without opening the file, such as Microsoft's free Image Resizer tool (http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe) which allows resizing by right clicking on the file name.
