Hi, Brice,

Do not change anything with resolution.

After selecting Scan to PDF, click on Advance Option. Here in the new window which opens at the top you can see PDF as selected. Beside this "Options" button will be there. Click on it and a slider will appear. It will be at maximum. so you need to move the slider to minimum or closer to that and click OK Try scanning.

This will reduce the file size. This should be helpful

Regards,
Sean

I would like to increase print size occasionally to enable better readability of the printed document.


In checking for information on your printer I noticed that there were new drivers released in November for Windows 7:

Your User Guide is available here:

Normally if wish to change the print size of a document you would change the Font Size within your word processor. The same would apply if you viewing a document on the web. For example, in Windows Explorer go to View, Select Text Size. Make your selcetion. Before printing I would choose the Print Preview selection under File to make sure it is what you want.

Trust this is helpful. :)

Go to "Picture Boost" option in the "OSD window". Then turn on the "Bright Frame" option and after that make the "Frame Size" to 100. That's it now you can get a perfect sharp image...it worked for me.

Printing black squares in word.doc


It sounds like this is an HP driver issue. HP drivers have built-in "optimizations" (that unfortunately have bugs) for things like printing photos. Different programs (word, for example) try to take advantage of these optimizations in different ways. When they work, they give superior photo printing (faster, with more accurate color). When they don't, you get black squares. This is why "converting" it to PDF worked for you -- Word printed it through the PDF driver instead of the HP printer driver, then when you printed the PDF file, that program avoided those optimizations when it sent the images to the printer. Unfortunately, the translation caused quality loss. If your goal was to print out something like a "proof-sheet" of photos, you might try the free photo organizer at www.preclick.com. It will print these for you, captions and everything, and should be able to avoid the driver issues.
