Here is my problem: I calibrate the scanner, scan the text, and then the output is sort of acceptable. Then I do it again, and the output worsens instead of getting any better. It's like my scanner has a negative learning curve... what do I do wrong? The scanner is basically useless.
Thank you very much for your help! Marie Muschalek
