I've tried to change the resolution and I can't seem to figure that out.   ???
But the picture does look better.

Gramma, if the scanner is a "standalone" scanner, when you open the program there will be a dropdown menu with a variety of resolutions to choose from, usually from about 50 up to 1200 or even more. But if it's an "all-in-one" scanner/printer combination that's become very popular, the resolution probably isn't adjustable.

Cheers,
China

You got it printer scanner - I  thought I  might be able to go into the Kodak software I have and maybe change it from that.  But I don't know what I want to change it to but it does give me 100% 75% Thumbnail web page.

grammatj8,

this is how it looks like on a 7 x 5.  Not too great.  I hope that link i sent you will help you.  Good luck.

okay this one was a bit better to work with.  Still at low resolution though. I'm reading it as a 200 dpi on my end. 

Try printing this one out to 7 x 5 to see if it is good enough.

I think the kotchan20 just above the one you created is a 600 dpi.  If I did it correctly.  I did take a print of the one just above and it came out okay but I guess it is the 200dpi that made it just okay.  Thanks for your  help.  It will be a nice picture for my Mom regardless.  Thanks again.  It really is amazing how things can change.

That is a little different.  I never thought of something like that. 
Thanks Mudge.
