i need a scanned image of writing to be 300px x 50px and it needs to be clear the image is around 800px X 250px and simply going to -image-image size- and changing the size doesnt work it it much too pixelated
Scan the writing using a higher resolution. Things like text be it printed or hand written to not re-size well unless they are vector graphics. Scans are raster images. Use your Digital Camera as your scanner.
