Help scanning, seeking large pixel dimensions

  • I have previously scanned a couple 9x12 paintings at 1200dpi and they worked great, result was approx 9000x6000 pixels, just what I was looking for. Now all of a sudden I tried to scan another 9x12 piece, same settings, 1200dpi. Yet I end up with a image half the size. Is there something I am missing? Is it automatically compressing the image at some point? If that were the case why didn’t it do it with scans I’ve done before? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Any scanning tips at all, scanning for a large image size, how to get the pixel dimensions I’m looking for. I’m frustrated and need help! Haha
