Solved!

Resize photos from scanner to print larger

HP Recommended
Envy 6230
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Help before I have no hair left to pull out please.

I did have a  HP 6970 which after scanning allowed me to make a 10 x15 photo into an A4 which was brilliant.

 

As this failed after just a couple of years I bought an Envy photo 6230. Love it but can I scan and resize.

 

Any ideas please as to how to change the sizes. On the little window on the front it does have "resize" but this has just 'actual', fit to page' and custom but no actual sizes to change to.

Would appreciate any help thank you Richard

Hi @Ricardo4,

 

I'd like to help!

 

You can resize and edit your scans using HP Scan.

 

Scan and edit

Load your documents, complete the scan, and then edit, if necessary.

  1. Place the first item you want to scan face-down on the scanner glass, aligning it with the guide at the edge of the glass.

    Aligning a document with the guides at the edges of the scanner glass

  2. In HP Scan, click Scan.

    The printer scans your document or photo, and then HP Scan displays a preview.

  3. To add pages or scan the other side, click the Add pages icon  on the bottom bar, place the next item face-down on the scanner glass, and then click Scan.

  4. Double-click individual pages to rotate, crop, or change brightness and contrast, or click More for advanced options.

  5. When you finish editing your scan, click Save or Send.

Refer to -How to Scan (Windows)

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thanks Jay

I used the resize tab and put in 200%. This turned my 10 x 15 into the A4 picture to print off. Is this the easiest way to do this?

Regards

Richard

Yes, using the scanning option these are the settings we could use to resize.
