If you download Image Resizer (http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe) From Microsoft, ( direct download) that will allow you to resize Pictures by right clicking them, Resize Image, then select the size you want, But it may become unclearer with bigger pixels.

The Brother Printer has software included that allows changing of the resolution when scanning, Start/All Programs/Brother/MFL-Prosuite/Scanner Settings.

My wife has that printer/scanner, and she uses Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/), a free program from Google to do lots of scanning /photo work. She resizes them OK.
