Fred...by default the PrescisionScan Pro will scan the slide the exact same size it see it as....you can however change the size to what ever size you prefer. I have scanned slides and by cropping them and then adjusting the size made then 800X600 or even 1024X768 so that they work as wallpaper for my PC. This can be done in the scanning software so you do not have to import them into a graphics image editor to change the size. By doing it in the scanning software a much better finished image will result.

I would have liked to hear about the quality of the image when a scanned slide is "adjusted" to the 800x600, etc.

Fred,  I have scanned dozens and dozens of 35 mm slides to fit on my desktop...the trick is to scan the image and then increase the size 1st...after you have it enlarged you can then crop the edges to get the 800X600. Do all of this in the scanning software BEFORE saving the image. By doing it this way I have had really good luck in getting excellent quality out of my scanned slides.
