Scanning is very light

- lower your scanning resolution, 200dpi or 300dpi should be enough
- if you are scanning text, use black and white color mode
- if problem persists, call HP TECH SUPPORT and ask them for the Fix Scan Utility

How to enlarge scanned photo.

Set your scanner to scan at 600dpi.  That will give you a 8x12 image at 300dpi (print quality- your image never needs to be more than 300dpi).

Then use your favourite image editor to crop the image to 8x10.  If you don't have a favourite image editor, XNView (free) will do it:

-Open the image in XNView
-Right click on the image, select "Set Selection Ratio --> 5:4"
-With your left mouse button, drag a square on the image...this will automatically scale so it chops the unwanted 2" off
-When the square is selecting the bit you want to keep, select "Edit --> Crop"
-Then we need to change the image from 600dpi to 300 dpi:
-Select "Image --> Resize"
-Uncheck the "Resample" and "Keep print size"
-"Keep ratio" should be checked
-Change the 600 in the "Units" box to 300; the setting unit should be "Pixels per Inch"
