Hopefully this will contain the cover and table of contents.

I need moderator help... it says my files are too big, and I don't think that they are!

Jimmy,
I don't have a scanner so I'm not versed in their use. But it is possible for the files to be too big. When I post a picture I often use my HP Photocenter to resize the pics. Also if your resolution is set very high it will take up a great deal of file space even if the pics aren't real big.
Give us some more detail on your settings and we'll see if we can help more! IDShooter

When you scan, you can choose an option for the image size, either by pixels, or inches (or mm). Quality size (dpi or number of pixels) can vary from around 72 dpi (low quality) to very large. Even though 72 dpi is low for printing it usually is good enough for viewing on the internet. Another tip is that you can save the image as different file types. Most common for internet use are *.jpg or *.gif. My scanner will only produce *.tif files so I must convert them to one of the other two in a seperate program. Usually whatever you use to view the images will allow you the "Save As" option where you can choose to save as a jpg or gif. *.tif files are larger than *.gif or *.jpg in file size. If you want to email me the images, I can work on them and post them for you. Then we'll know for sure what is happening.

Best of luck,
