That's always worked for me, too. It doesn't make sense to save pictures at 
full resolution unless you're going to do further work on them (e.g. 
retouching or large prints). The flip side of that coin, of course, is that 
if you've already done the work of scanning, why not save it as scanned? If 
you have ample storage space, there's no reason not to--but given past 
discussions on the fallibility of inexpensive CD-R's, perhaps it would be 
better to save small "thumbnail" files to disc/or HD for reference and the 
large files to CD-R or DVD for later use.

Just a thought. ---LRA
