scans are larger than real size

The scan is trying to determine the area, but you should still be able to click on the Pre-Scan image and expand the selection area.

I don't have the same scanner that you have but I do have HP and use the director as well.
200 DPI (Dots Per Inch) is the recommended setting for color scans.
Scanned images are always saved as larger than what they are. Higher resolution means a higher quality image. It also means a higher file size. If you don't have a high resolution, your images will not be very sharp.
If you have a smaller image and you try to resize it to be bigger, so it fits into a document you may be printing, your image will not be of very good quality. You can resize the scanned image to fit your documents, by selecting it and grabbing the handles on the side and simply making it smaller. Or you can resize the image in a picture program.
