Me again --
I found the answer to the second part of my question. Because I am scanning slides 'in bulk' and 'as is' (i.e. no alterations) I haven't been using the Preview function which activates these settings.
As to Part 1 of my question it seems that it could be the quality/size of file that I am saving - my default seems to have changed to 'Maximum' instead of 'high' but I am not aware of my having changed it so if there are any other likely explanations I would still like to hear them.
: I am hoping someone may be able to give me an explanation for a strange thing that has happened. I love my scanner, it works just fine BUT the file sizes of my recent scans are about four times the size of similar ones done a couple of weeks ago. I am unaware of my having made any changes. In my ignorance, if something is working I leave well alone. Any suggestions? Both sets of files are jpegs.
: Secondly, when the 'Scanning to a file' setting is chosen in FilmGet (this is my regular setting), should the settings in the box where you select the dpi you want become active? Mine don't - how do I activate them?
