I have used the scan mode to get photos but when the thumbnails show up, they do not fill the space and the photo is in the top right hand corner with a bunch of white space surrounding it. Is there a way to click and drag on the corners to fill the space so the thumbnails will be full like the pictures I have put on from my digital camera? I went into fix photos and got it to expand by using the + and - but it would not let me click on OK.
It sounds like you are scanning the whole bed of the scanner and not just the picture. This is controlled by your scanner software. Depends on the model, but most have a "preview", which lets you choose which part of the whole scanning bed you want to scan. Otherwise, you get big files have to crop it later.
