This may help, good info
I have an HP 1210xi all-in-one printer-scanner-copier. No matter which HP provided settings I use, the scanned file is HUGE - way too big to email. Mostly what I need to scan are hand-written black-and-white notes. I'm running Windows XP Home, without Word. I'd really appreciate any advice on how to correct this. Also, I need a way to manipulate the view of the file so I can edit it or print it larger. A friend said Word would do this - but is there a less expensive option?
