I have a pretty good scan of a document, in JPG format that has Fuchsia type printed text, and black handwritten text. I wish to remove the handwritten text, and sharpen and colour enhance the Fuchsia text slightly. I am a Gimp, and image editing noob in general, so my guesses are as follows:
- Remove the black handwriting with a soft brush the same colour as the surrounding blank, whitish paper. This I can sort of do. 2.Then blur the new white with the rest of the white. I have no clue. 3.Then straighten some borders. I suspect there are ways of doing this automagically, but I can draw lines if need be.
- Then select all the Fuchsia colour with the magic wand thing and invoke some sort of 'enhance' command'.
What have I got wrong and what have I missed?
 Is that a good format for editing? I know it isn't for presentation. Or is good ol' BMP best for manipulation?
