I operated and programmed on a mainframe for years and still use DOS on occasion to do stuff
I still have my machine language manuals.
I'm considered a dinosaur!
It's much easier to do it my way, though using the scanner would have been a last resort. I found another way to do it, too, though it was much more difficult. I used "print" and directed it to the document image maker, then saved it as a .tif...but it's about 1.5 M in size that way, I needed it transparent for a Web page, so I converted it to a .gif in Image Zone and resized. Came down to about 27 K.
But using Publisher is by far and away the bestest!
Took me all of about 1.5 minutes once I remembered how to do it.
Why would I need an image? Well, we have the dogs' blog pages to maintain, y'know, and they're very proud of their families so hubby includes a 3-generation pedigree on his pages. I work up the peds in excel, then transfer just the image of the worksheet to the web pages:
This way, I only add about 7 K to the size of the page.
