Scanned JPG image goes blurry when saved

USING: Canon MultiPASS F80 scanner and Windows XP and MS Paint (been using these for about 3 years)

PROBLEM: When scanning color photos at 1200 dpi on the Canon F80 scanner and saving as a JPG, the manipulated JPG goes blurry/hazy in certain parts ONLY WHEN THE IMAGE IS SAVED or closed (meaning after I've used the MS Paint "stretch" feature to shrink the 1200 dpi JPG scan to 36x36, then 25x25). When I re-open the final manipulated JPG, the blurry/hazy problems are still there. This has NEVER happened before, I've been scanning color (and B&W) photos at 1200 dpi for about 3 years on this Canon F80 scanner with Windows XP (and using the MS Paint "stretch" feature), and the results have always been excellent - I've never lost clarity before when the manipulated JPGs have been saved/closed, and then re-opened.

I tried scanning the pictures at a lower dpi (300, 400, 600), but I lose overall clarity (which I don't want), and the JPGs still look blurry/hazy in the problem areas.

I normally scan by opening MS Paint (and invoking the scanner from it), or by hitting the "start" button on the scanner itself; when this problem started, I also tried using the F80 MultiPASS Suite, however, the end result is still a problem. I've also tried saving the scan as a bitmap, TIFF and PNG - BMP, TIFF & PNG each seem to retain the clarity I want, but the files are way too big - I much prefer the JPG format.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Duggie647, I tried the sharpen tool, but it makes the image too grainy. Thanks anyway. Tim O

    I tried the sharpen tool before I posted anything on this site - if I use the sharpen tool once, it doesn't bring up the clarity I need; if I use it more than once, the image starts getting grainy.

Try saving in BMP first, after stretching, then open the BMP copy and resave to jpg, and it should do away with the blur... I thinkit's a stretch resolution mismatch in the jpeg...

Canon f80 multipass New five years ago never


Are you using Windows Vista or Windows 7? If so, the driver download page at Canon does not provide drivers beyond XP. Otherwise, go back to the XP (or earlier versions) driver downlaod site and download the MultiPASS F80 Software User's Guide. That may provide the answer to your problem. Also, if you are using unpopular, proprietary software programs the driver may not recognize the commands. Good Luck!

New Computer problems with printer


It probably will not ... check theMiocrosoft Compatability List here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx to see if the F80 is listed. (My F80 died inthe USB department)

If there is a entry at the MS site, follow their instruction. Otherwise, go to www.canon.com/support and look for a driver that will operate under your OS. If there is not one, you can ask for one ... but you are probably at the end of the road with this printer. We use ours for a copy machine since the faulty power supply prohibits its communicating with the computer.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

No Windows 7 driver for a Canon F80


Good idea, Windows 7 is NO good if your equipment is less than a few months old... Pre 2008 stuff just isn't compatible. IMHO Win 7 is OK for brand new stuff, Otherwise I stick to XP... see everything works with XP..or nearly so.

My HP PSC printer will not scan on my pc with,


Probably a driver problem. The solution for Windows XP or earlier versions of Windows is to go to the HP website and download the driver for the printer. For Windows Vista there is no driver that enables scanning. The workaround is to open Paint, select:
All Programs-->Accessories-->Paint
To import the scanned image, select:
File-->From Scanner or Printer
In the Select Device window, select your printer and click OK. In the Scan Using HP..... window, select a color option and click Scan. Wait for the image to be scanned into Paint. Then you can manipulate the image using Paint or save it.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
