try reducing the default DPI for your scanners JPG photo setting
scan at 150 dpi then you wont need to reduce the size.
as for my comment ..
I was trying to alleviate the over thinking and worrying you seem to be doing on this simple speculative invoice.
its not a fine, it cant get you nor your budgie thrown in jail .
the issue of pofa or popla is small fry to a court and any claim will easily be dealt with by them IF IF IF it ever gets that far. it is not irrelevant.
MCOL often has hissy fits overnight or at w/ends until the workforce arrives and resets it.
as already detailed in post 36.
defence is not due till 3/01
so don't panic
if you still cant get in there is an email that can be used
but see if mcol sorts itself.
