Since there have been some thousands of scanners with untold softwares with untold features I will note that many turn to Photoshop or other image editing/enhancers to get some improvements.
Have you tried that?
Lately I've been looking at a new scanner and I've noticed they can scan documents into a pdf so I have 2 questions. Some newspaper clippings I copied using a microfilm reader and they came out very dark, like black ink on very gray paper. I'm curious if the scanning software that comes with most scanners can make the clippings once again look like black ink on white paper? I was also wondering if once the clipping is scanned into the pdf can I move it around so that they're positioned the way I want them or once the scan is done that's it, it's in the pdf never to be moved? Thanks
