You need to start by opening your scanning software program, scan a picture into your computer, save it. then if your trying to print it out using a different program like microsoft publisher or microsoft word or most other programs. open that program then go to insert, picture from file, then find the picture you saved and insert it. then you can go to any of the edges and click and mover edges up/down left/right to fit the page.

Thank You,

How do you adjust the size [eg, make it larger] of a scanned print,for a final print,for a Umax Astra 1220U

Scanner will scan actual size only. If you need smaller or big sized print, select appropriate size and use 'fit' command before printing. With Raster Editing software, you can create another Image which is smaller or bigger.

Canon 9080C not scanning 11x17 pages

The problem is probably in your scanning software, you have to tell it if you want to scan legal size, and if you leave it set for legal all the time it might put dark bars under the letter size docs. It depends on the version of software on your computer.

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.

I can't print scanned material to full size.

You can try the freeware at the link below:

The description states: "You can also use FreeKapture as an 'ad hoc' copy machine (by using your printer drivers 'how many copies to print' option)."

It works with all twain compliant scanners. Download and install and then point it to your scanner.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you.

Lexmarkx125 will scan larger pictures but smaller ones.

Here are some instructions from the Lexmark X63 which was similar to the X125.

The Lexmark X63 uses a sheet fed scanner, intended to scan 8 1/2 x11 inch paper.
  • To scan a document between 5 1/2 inches and 8 3/4 inches wide, center the document between the paper feed guides leading into the scanner and make sure the document is held straight,. Do not bend the document as it is fed into the scanner.
  • To scan photos or pictures that are 5 1/2 inches wide or smaller, you will need to use a flatbed scanner, or "mat" the image into a regular letter-size paper and scan the entire page. When the scan process is complete, crop out the picture using the AUTO CROP option in the Scan and Copy Control program or the photo-editing software.

I need a scanner that will scan 10X14 pictures

I found some scanners for you listed below but,
You can also scan large pictures in sections, and then use a program like STITCHES. Basically you scan it in quarter sections and then create a working board in your photo program and then you copy and paste each section into that board and line up the edges.
This is what most people do rather than buy a very expensive large format scanner.

Some large companies also have large scanners for maps etc. If you know someone who works for a very large company or one that does surveying etc. They may do this favor for you.
Though copy stores may have the size you need, copywrite issues will be asked about.

Here is the list.
large format scanners

Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL Scanner
Price: $1,038.31, 12-by-17-inch tabloid size bed

Mustek Scan Express A3 1200 Pro USB Large Format Scanner
$154.69media_size_maximum: A3 (11.7 in x 16.5 in)
Maximum Scan Width 44in.
Input Size:Min: 4.5" x 5.5" Max: 42" x 100'

Thank you and good luck.

Scanning problem with A940 AIO Dell printer/scanner

    Hi there, just found this solution to work perfectly. i just freaked out for a moment with the same problem. Use this or just type fax and scan in your help function. Hope this helps!

    Before you begin, make sure that you've installed your scanner on the computer and that the scanner is turned on.
  1. Windows Photo Gallery.
  2. Click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
  3. In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click the scanner that you want to use, and then click Import.
  4. In the New Scan dialog box, click the Profile list, and then click Photo. The default settings for scanning a picture are automatically displayed.
  5. If you're using a scanner with a document feeder, click the Paper size list, and then click the size of the picture that you've placed on the scanner or click the size that most closely matches the picture.
  6. Click the Color format list, and then click the color format that you want the scanned file to display.
  7. Click the File type list, and then click the file type that you want to use to save the scanned file.
  8. Click the Resolution (DPI) list, and then click the resolution, in dots per inch, that you want to use.
  9. Adjust the brightness and contrast settings or type the values that you want to use.
  10. To see how the picture will appear when it is scanned, click Preview. If needed, modify the scan settings, and then preview the picture again. Repeat these steps until you're satisfied with the preview results. Some scanners might require you to place the picture in the document feeder each time that you scan.
  11. Click Scan. When the scan is complete, Windows Photo Gallery prompts you to tag the picture so that it's easier to organize or find later.
  12. In the Tag these pictures (optional) list, type a tag name, and then click Import. Windows Photo Gallery displays the picture so you can view, fix, or organize it.

I can't Scan 8 1/2 by 14. It cuts the scan to that of a regular paper. I can fax by 8 1/2 by 14 and it comes out alright. how i do the set up. I used the set up in the scan but it did not help.

I also had problems scanning legal size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. The documents would scan but would not come out complete. A large portion of the text would always be left out and only an image of the size of regular page size would come out. I knew it had to be something with the settings, so after experimenting with my MFC-7440N I came to the conclusion that I was not going to find the solution on the actual machine. I had a "Hunch" that I would find my solution by connecting the printer to my laptop computer and use the software that came with it. After a couple of minutes I was able to scan Legal Size documents in a breeze... I should of done this months ago. All scanned docs came out in full size.

So I took some screen shots to post them up here to let everyone know how to scan legal size documents since I noticed that people are having trouble just like I did. With this instructions you will also be able to scan any available size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. I will also guide you step by step. After step 4 the remainder steps are OPTIONAL unless you need to change the color or picture file types. Okay, here we go!

Step 1.
Make sure your MFC-7440N is connected to your computer and the computer has the software installed that came with the printer.
Place the Legal Sized documents/papers that you want to scan on the Paper Feeder Scanner located on the most upper area of the machine.

Step 2. On your computer, go to START then to DEVICES and PRINTERS, or CONTROL PANEL then DEVICES and PRINTERS. Locate the icon of your MFC-7440N. If its not your DEFAULT printer make it the default one. Then RIGHT Click on the icon. A menu will pop open. Locate START SCAN and click it.

Step 3. A small window will open that will give you various options to scan a multitude of sizes and different settings. Locate where it says SOURCE. The default setting might be FLATBED meaning the flatbed scanner of your machine. Click the drop down menu and select FEEDER. By selecting the feeder option your computer will tell your machine to use the automatic paper scanner located on the most upper area of your machine.

Step 4. Locate PAPER SIZE. Click on the drop down menu and then select Legal 8.5 x 14 inches (216 x 356mm).
If your documents are already located in the feeder you can now go ahead and click SCAN and your documents will begin to scan.
Your scanned documents will be saved in a file folder in your computer and that file will pop open for your convenience once all documents are scanned.

If you need to change COLOR or Black and White setting plus Picture File Types such as Jpeg or Tiff just click on their respective drop down menu before clicking SCAN.Here are some pictures to help me illustrate it.

I hope you find this helpful.

Thank You!
