    I have windows vista basic and canon LiDE 25 scanner.
    When I view scanned docs in ArcSoft Photostudi 5.5 the docs seem normal
    size they print ok. but when view actual size they are too big. I sized image
    down 32% when i view the actual size its right bu then when I printed the
    size was curiously too small. If I leave it so it can print the right size
    and i send in an email again it would be too big. Im confused any suggetsions?

    The scanner can scan in different resolutions.
    A printer can print in different resolutions.
    The display can also have a resolution different that the scanner or
    Various application programs and printer add ons to such things as a browser
    can automatically scale.

    On my system
    Display 1280 x1924 (LCD native) (an often used DPI for displayed text size
    is 96)
    Scanner 200-300DPI for general use and prescan, much higher for small items
    such as slides, negatives, and stamps.
    Printer (Ink Jet) ~200-300 DPI normal use, ~720-2400 high quality picture
    printing, (Driver does dynamic scaling, based upon multiple factors)
    Fax (all in one) Standard & Fine Fax resolution, higher between two units of
    the same make and compatable models.

    I can optionally set the printer driver to scale or not to scale if I want
    to enlarge or reduce the image to an 8 1/2-11 page.
    Commonly used photo oriented apps allow an image to be resized by the number
    of pixels in the image file, and/or the number of pixels per inch.

    In other words, you will need to change settings. Which ones depend on what
    is most convenient for your exact usage.
