I guess you should check the printer settings. Cédric Guess we have to define "size". If you scan a photo at 100 dpi and view it at 100% on the screen it will be smaller than the same photo scanned at 300 DPI view at 100%. That is one "size". The other size is the KB of the file. That will be more for a higher resolution file as well. To scan a picture at a higher resolution means it has to make more dots per line which takes more room ie a larger picture hence a bigger picture. If this is confusing you are not alone! Do A test, scan a photo print at 100, 200 and 300 DPI and save them. Then open them in Gimp and set view to 100%. You will see that the 300 is much larger and the file is very big as well. So a 300 DPI picture is a "large picture, at 100% it will not print, it needs to be printed to fit the paper. Most printer drivers will do that. MS Paint has an option to print 100% or less so it can fit on the page. You do not need to resize but that is an option.
