Default posting a scan to a thread?

How do I make a scan smaller so I can post it to a thread??? Help! My husband just got a cheap scanner/printer and I figured out how to scan, but when I went to post the scan online it was too big.

Thanks in advance.

The scanner should have a software program with it ? If yes- then you should be able to change the pic resolution/size usually under scan preffences, some scanner's reduce in %'s others in pixels.. If not , If you own a digital camera, & have the photo program associated with it you can up load it into there & resize it.. It's usually in these steps ( or similar) Export- still images-resize- you would then change the pixels to lower the KB's . Hope this is some kind of help...

Personally, I use Photoshop to resize my images when I remember to do so! Once you scan your image, your scanning program should allow you to resize the pic. If you get stuck, you may want to google your particular scanner for more info on how to resize the image.

I use Google's Picasa software. It's free, has a shallow learning curve (I find it pretty intuitive) and it allows exports of photos with resizing.

You should be able to pick the resolution when doing the scan... 72 dpi is standard for computer screens.
