1. An image processing apparatus comprising:
at least one processor;
a reception unit implemented by the at least one processor and configured to receive image data by facsimile communication, wherein the received image data includes an image having a second image size prescribed by the facsimile communication that is different from a first image size of the image before the facsimile communication;
a printer configured to select a paper on which to print the received image data based on an image size of the image data, wherein the printer is configured to select a paper based on the second image size having a paper size that is different from a paper size of a paper that would be selected by the printer based on the first image size;
a conversion unit implemented by the at least one processor and configured to transform the image data received by the reception unit into image data having a third image size that is different from the second image size; and
a storage configured to store, in a file, the image data transformed by the conversion unit,
wherein, as a result of the transformation of the image data by the conversion unit, the printer is configured to select a paper based on the third image size having a paper size that is the same as a paper size of a paper that would be selected by the printer based on the first image size, and
wherein the printer is configured to print the transformed image data on paper selected based on the third image size.
