    Be sure you're viewing the scanned image at 100% zoom in all programs, in order to give it a fair comparison.

    In Painter, unfortunately, images often look pixelated when viewed at any other zoom percent than 100%.

    If you still find it too "grainy", try scanning it again at a higher ppi number, 600 ppi for instance.

    Good luck.
    Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!

    yeah, i bounce a lot between pshop and painter, pshop for scans, scaling, rotating, copying well as cleanup and some nice subtle filter tricks...and painter for painting. painter i think just has trouble because of it's natural media feel, so things are always a little choppy or pixelated, but even after you save it's actually ok, but if you're obsesive about details like i am then it freaks you out some times, just take it into pshop to clean up edges,etc.
    It's super happy wonderful fun time!
