Increasing and decreasing printed size of scanned piece

HP Recommended
HP OFFICEJET PRO 6968
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

When I purchased this printer, I was told I could change a scanned article (photo, artwork, document) say from the same size to smaller (25%, 50%, 100%) or larger in a similar manner.  I see no way this can be done.  Can it be done, and if so, how?

Printing Images / Photos / Artwork

 

If the file is already scanned into your computer, you can print the file (photo, artwork, document) using Printing software on your computer -- some programs (like Paint) allow scaling so you can print the image as you wish.  Windows Photo Viewer lets you choose from sizes and number of prints on a page.  HP Photo Creations prints single and multiple photos, collage, or matted photo prints.

Scanning documents / images

 

Scanning essentially copies the image / document on the printer glass (or ADF) into the computer at the size of that original image.   Depending on the program used, some minor editing is supported including minor color changes and cropping.

 

Many programs are available that support scanning, most of which are supported in Windows 8 and up.

Scanning Program Options

  • HP Scan Extended Exceptional standalone scan program:  Single, Multiple scans, Auto-Crop!
  • NAPS2 -- Not another PDF Scanner
  • Printer Software (Full Feature Software)
  • HP Scan and Capture
  • And others…

 

Printing documents

 

Document printing is handled in the program / application that you use to open the document and submit the print job to the printer.  

 

For example,

  • PDF Reader programs (Adobe Reader DC / Foxit Reader) can print at either orientation, a percentage of 100%, "fit to page", across pages (banner), booklet, or multiple pages on one sheet.
  • Word can be formatted for size of paper, layout, orientation, pages per sheet

Copy

 

Copy can change the size of the image / document to a preset size (percentage of 100).  Particulars vary by printer model -- Check / Adjust your Copy settings when printing and / or set the Copy preferences in the Embedded Web Server.
