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,

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.
