I am scanning a 12x12 page. I scan the one half, flip it over and scan the other half. Sometimes, I have no problem and other times, when I try to stitch them, it tells me they have to be the same size. Then I scanned the smae thing twice....How can 2 scans of the exact same thing come out two different sizes?

Although your scans are the same physical size, apparently your scanner has produced image files that have slightly different numbers of pixels (the individual dots that make up digital images). The Panorama Factory requires that the image files have exactly the same width and height in pixels. For an explanation of this requirement, read the first posting in Why do images need to be all the same size to stitch?.

So why are your images slightly different sizes?

To answer this question, you'll probably have to consult the documentation that came with your scanner. The Panorama Factory works with scanned images, but I'm really not an expert on scanner software.

To solve this problem, The Panorama Factory includes a "trimming" tool to help you trim the images to the same size. Read Joining two scanned images for one description of how to use the trimming tool for this purpose. You'll have to use the Classic interface --the Wizard does not support the trimming tool.
