    Anyone know about scanning color stuffs in black and white?

    My company scans a lot of magazines in black and white (and grayscale, but that IS NOT IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW!), and since we’re going out of business we aren’t getting new (color) scanners.

    As you might have guessed, sometimes, when the text and background are roughly the same luminosity, you can’t get the contrast needed for the text to be readable.
    Also, the scanners we have are the annoying kind that take the (often 11×24″ or larger) paper in like those dollar accepter things on vending machines.

    Anyone know a way to fix this crap? Could I just slap some cheap gel sheets on there and have red neutralize red or some crap? Surely there is a detailed explanation waiting to save my entire company, so it can squirm about in death throes for another week.

    It’s not even my job!
    *runs off crying*
