Make sure you use the Macro setting (will be a little flower symbol) this will ensure close up shots are focussed. Most cameras have it, I have a 6 megapixel cybershot and it works great.

you can also push your camera against the glass to avoid reflections. Don't know if that would work with a flash though, I never use a flash.

In Microsoft Paint you can stretch or shrink a picture. Go to Image->stretch/skew and you can reduce a picture to 50% or 10% or whatever. Wouldn't recommend paint for anything more complicated than that.
