it sounds like youre saving it at a REALLY low resolution or possibly even scanned it at a low resolution. Make sure that if youre going to print scan and save at at least 150 DPI or if its just for screen viewing scan and save at 72 dpi. Definitely dont scan lower than 72.

well..what kind of format are you saving it in? Try saving it as as jpeg with little or NO compression. If that fails try a TIFF.
