I'd guess you've got to adjust the settings of the scanner, try the scanner website for the info.

If you want it to be readable on Boatmad. it really should be scanned in a pdf file,assuming you have a scanner that can do that.Then you are probably looking at 150 dpi setting so the memory isn`t too large so as to fit the site requirements.(300dpi can only do 2 pages before it chucks it back at you)

If you scan the page (non pdf) and reduce the file size,it isn`t going to be readable for viewing anyway,unless you do part A4 pages.I`ve found that out the hard way.

Unless somebody else has a cunnung plan,can`t think of another way of doing it,short of sending it scanned to somebody who can do a pdf for you.

As Graham suggests the PDF route is the best, but you could also just try bringing the image up on the computer screen, then right clicking on the mouse and selecting the 'edit' button. This will enable you to re-size the image using paint(?). Once the image has opened in Paint, from the 'Image' tab across the top of the image, select Stretch/Skew. You can then reduce the size of the image. Try reducing by 60%. The image will then re-size. Then save it as a new file. (If you try to close the image without saving it first, it will throw up the option of giving the new re-sized image a new name. I usually tab to the end of the original image title, and add the word 'small'.) You could then try uploading the image to this site again. If still too big - repeat the process amending the percentage of decrease in size - a matter of trial and error really.
