Hi Guys

Any tips on what to do here?

I'm making a DVD Project, and when when I'm adding my DVD tittle menu and I want to put a background picture (Jpeg) in Which I scanned in via a photo it just shows up in "Black"

Have you had this problem and if so how did you overcome it?

If you save the scanned photo into your My Pictures folder, you should be able to drag and drop into your project.

No I have a seperate folder, Pinnacle says to reduce the file size and it works, but I'm trying to suss out how I would full it in as a background image.

Lazarus The 2nd


The Scanner/Copier I have is the Epson DX8400

The Resolution I'm scanning this photo is at 300dpi and going to now try and scan it in 960 x 540 and 640 x 480

This one come in now at 540 x 392

The Second - 480 x 348

Which software is good to bump up the images?

Adoboe Photoshop Elements 7.0 go obviously open the image and then "Image Resize" What numbers do I enter in the boxes?

Oh Dam I wish this forum had an "Edit Your Facilty"

Forgot to add

I have a backgrounds folder and Backgrounds 6 x 9 I tried to resize those pictures to what you suggested and they are still coming out to small.
