My pictures are too big for the scanner window by about 1/4″, so it takes several scans to get it squared right. It also bleaches out all the colors. I use paint.net to fix everything. Usually resize, crop, soften (with colors) or gaussien blur (with black and white) then layer it with the original and sharpen it to finish. Here is a photo of the original before scanning. They look a lot different in real life. They even look better if I could hold the camera still.
