Post Scanners

I want to post on WetCanvas, but every time I make the images smaller the scanner always leaves big Spaces of white, but I want people to see my stuff right away, how can this be solved?

Animal: Tell us how you get you image smaller. Are you using a photo editor and if so, which one are you using?

You got it well, sort of, kiddo. Just trim around your actual photo in Adobe. If you do it any other way, the white remains.
Sometimes it looks gone but if you see scroll bars after resizing, the white is still there even if you don't see it.
Always use Trim right after opening your image in Photodeluxe!

I've found it better to Trim before you set the phote size or do anything else to it after scanning depending on your scanner settings.

Cool

Some image editors use the command " crop" .
With this command you can select the exact part of the image you want and then click the crop icon to remove the rest,then save,

Also, if you prescan the image it will come up with marching ants around the image (marching ants is the line that is moving around your image). From there, just bring the lines to the edges of your image and then do a final scan. This should take all of the white space from around your image.

Did I explain this right?

More or less I think so.
Ants? Are those really ants? I thought they were just short lines.
