Could you be more specific?  What exactly are you trying to fax?
Is it a html page with text?  Or is it JPEG or GIF or PNG images?
Or is it a combination?  Color images can't be faxed but thay can
be reduced to greyscale which can be faxed.

Keep in mind that a fax image (in fine mode) is 204x196 dpi, which,
when mapped onto a standard 8.5x11 inch paper is 1728x2156 total
dots or pixels.  The total resolution of an image has to be less
than these values or it must be reduced to fit the page.
