In the "Scanner Settings" section of Kooka' clicking on the "Resolution" 
tab will allow you to set a resolution which will produce the image size 
you want. You will probably have to play with it a bit(try a few 
settings and see what results you get) to come up with a suitable 
setting. At least that's what I had to do.
