If you want to put pics on a website, scan and save as jpegs. Scan at about 300kb and then save them as jpegs at around 30% quality which will give you a small, fast loading image.

Use irfanview'w aquire option to scan the pics.

Send to paint etc, just look for irfanview'w aquire. its the libeary comp and you dont get long to look at it

If it's a library based system then presumably you won't have Irfanview available.

I'm sure that if you approached whoever provides the support for the systems they would be sympathetic to a request to install Irfanview - it is a simple, but very efficient, utility.

Doesn't the scanning software have a Save As option? If it has, just click Save As, give it a file name, save it as jpeg to a destination on your hard drive or to floppy. You should be prompted for the quality. Try different levels to find the one that suits you.

No need to send to anything before you save as.
