Remember to save it as a jpeg and keep it under 80k.

thats very low resolution

Don't know what you mean by "added software". You need software that recogonizes the scanner, whether its the driver that came with the scanner or photo software.

Are you asking if you need to fix up the scanned pic? Generally no. A lot of scanner software will allow you to adjust the color, brightness, and contrast as its scanned. This is only needed if the pic is too dark.

Depending on the size of the pic, you may need to change the size, ie) if the scanned pic is 4x6, you may want to reduce to a smaller size before emailing.

File size of saved scan depends on resolution, size, and compression. Resolution - number of dpi. For emailing, 75-100 works ok. Compression - jpeg files are compressed. The more compression, the smaller the file but you lose detail that cannot be recovered later.

yes

Yes.

To post a pic on a forum, scan at 100 dpi. This is plenty for a computer display. You probably need to resize it to get under 50k bytes. I have a couple of different photo programs, but I believe what is included with the OS (Microsoft Paint) will work, too, but I haven't used it.
