I took another photo of my picture with my cell phone camera. A little more detail came out. Still a little grainy. :bangbangbang:

An excellent shot of your sketch Shannon! :D No joy on resetting your scanner's gamma values?

There are pluses to having a wife who does scrapbooking for a hobby! We always have a functional scanner around!

Shannon,

An excellent observation of Jupiter showing two satellite shadows. The image is fine, but what is the problem with your scanner?

Thank you all. I took this with my cell phone then sent it to my e-mail. I've scanned it and messed around with the settings; I just can't get fine detail out of the scanner even when I take it into Photoshop. It's an old Lexmark - I think we bought it 5 years ago. I get a better picture off of my cell phone than the scanner. So either a new scanner or better digital camera. Until then, hope you guys don't mind grainy pics.
