Sam -- Changing resolution is easy. You navigate to Custom > Print Path where you enter resolution numbers for "drawings and halftones" and "photos. Give your setting a name and click "add." After that you'll be able to access your setting in the drop-down box on the DeskScan II panel under "Path." Do you have a recent version of the DeskScan software? I use v2.8. I found v2.9 less stable with my 4C. Drivers remain available on the HP Web site. I find it useful to turn down "saturation" in the Tools > Color Adjustment dialog. A setting of 35 seems about right to reduce the over-saturated colors of an unadjusted scan. In my opinion, my 4C does a terrific job of scanning at 300-600 ppi, and I've found no reason to replace it. I use dedicated film scanners for film so I have very rarely needed to scan any flat art at a resolution greater than 600 dpi. The HP software is surprisingly capable and can deliver a darn good pre-adjusted scan to Photoshop. VueScan has been useful when I've needed a high-bit (30-bit imported as 36-bit) scan or to get raw data for scanner-based printer profiling with Profiler RGB. Several advantages of the HP #C Scanjets are its 8½×14 scan size which I've found very useful and that absolutely every piece of imaging software includes settings/profiles for them. -- Victor Landweber Sam wrote: >Try as I maight I can find no way to change the scan dpi from 100 on >this scanner. >Does anyone have any idea on how to increase the scan for this to get a >decent print. >TIA >Sam - Turn off HTML mail features.
