    Hi Bob,

    Basically, there's only 2 main formats that you can save the a file into: RGB and CMYK, although there are a few "variations" on each that can "upset the apple cart".

    My suggestion is to post one here and let us take a look at it ... nine times out of ten we can quickly see what the problem is.

    Hope this helps!

    Just an initial thought. Have you scanned it as Adobe RGB colours instead of basic RGB. The Adobe version has a larger file size and can sometimes cause problems when used on the internet, so standard RGB is the version which is more frequently used.

    If you aren't familar with image sizing I wonder what resolution was your scan (pixels per inch)? And what resolution do they require?

    If you can check both items (Image size menu should give your current size) then report back with the details someone will be able to run through the finer techniques of image resizing.

    It can't be a major problem.
