I have a new Imac OSx version 10.6.6 and I was able to successfully scan a picture (actually a decal sheet about 2" x5")to the computer. My problem is when I go to print it out it is 5 times the size of the actual picture I scanned. I need to have it the exact size I scanned it as.
When I scanned it I saved it as a Jpeg, to my desktop. Then I imported to Iphoto in hopes that I could adjust it there, but was unable to figure out how to do it.
Can anyone tell me how to do this? Should I not have saved it as a Jpeg, maybe a TIFF or something else? I can always rescan it and save it as a different file.
I am sure this is an easy fix , but I just cant figure it out.
QUOTE Thanks

Import the Jpeg into Preview, you can resize it then re-save it.
