I guess that you are using a flatbed scanner and you are scanning prints. With 3200dpi the scanner will output 3200pixels for every inch of the print and this will not make the scan better. The print by itself has almost a resolution of 300dpi so anything above that is almost useless. Try scanning at 450-600dpi maximum and then downsize the photograph using Photoshop or any other photo editing software.
